Wi-Fi Alliance® introduces Wi-Fi CERTIFIED 7™ - January 8, 2024

Wi-Fi CERTIFIED 7™ is here, introducing powerful new features that boost Wi-Fi® performance and improve connectivity across a variety of environments. Cutting-edge capabilities in Wi-Fi CERTIFIED 7 enable innovations that rely on high throughput, deterministic latency, and greater reliability for critical traffic. New use cases – including multi-user AR/VR/XR, immersive 3-D training, electronic gaming, hybrid work, industrial IoT, and automotive – will advance as a result of the latest Wi-Fi generation. Wi-Fi CERTIFIED 7 represents the culmination of extensive collaboration and innovation within Wi-Fi Alliance®, facilitating worldwide product interoperability and a robust, sophisticated device ecosystem.

 

Wi-Fi 7 will see rapid adoption across a broad ecosystem with more than 233 million devices expected to enter the market in 2024, growing to 2.1 billion devices by 2028. Smartphones, PCs, tablets, and access points (APs) will be the earliest adopters of Wi-Fi 7, and customer premises equipment (CPE) and augmented and virtual reality (AR/VR) equipment will continue to gain early market traction[1]Wi-Fi CERTIFIED 7 pushes the boundaries of today’s wireless connectivity, and Wi-Fi CERTIFIED™ helps ensure advanced features are deployed in a consistent way to deliver high-quality user experiences.

 

Advanced features include: 

  • 320 MHz channels: available in countries that make the 6 GHz band available to Wi-Fi, ultra-wide channels double today’s widest channel size to facilitate multigigabit device speeds and high throughput.

  • Multi-Link Operation (MLO): allows devices to transmit and receive data simultaneously over multiple links for increased throughput, reduced latency, and improved reliability.

  • 4K QAM: achieves 20% higher transmission rates than 1024 QAM. 

  • 512 Compressed block-ack: improves efficiency and reduces overhead. 

  • Multiple RUs to a single STA: improves flexibility for spectrum resource scheduling to enhance spectrum efficiency.

  • Triggered Uplink Access: optimizes Wi-Fi 6 defined triggered uplink access to accommodate latency sensitive streams and satisfy QoS requirements.

  • Emergency Preparedness Communication Services (EPCS): provides a seamless National Security & Emergency Preparedness (NSEP) service experience to users while maintaining the priority and quality of service in Wi-Fi access networks.

Windows 11 is Coming October 5, 2021

Windows 11 releases for PC on October 5th. Unlike Windows 10, machine compatibility is considerably more strict than in previous versions.

 

Windows 11 devices must use modern device drivers which have passed the Windows Hardware Compatibility Program for Windows 11 or the latest available modern device drivers based on Declarative, Componentized, Hardware Support Apps (DCH) design principles.

Essentially machines with processors over 2 years old as of this date are not guaranteed automatic upgrades or compatibility.

However there are methods to still be able to officially upgrade these machines.

If you are interested in this, please contact us for more information.

Wi-Fi 6 is Here!

Wi-Fi 6 is the new standard. We can upgrade your network to take full advantage of the new technology. Many devices are already supporting Wi-Fi 6, for example iPhones since the iPhone 11 fully support this standard plus many more.

How Is Wi-Fi 6 Different?

Wi-Fi 6 is a substantial upgrade over previous generations, though the differences may not seem immediately obvious to the average user. These changes might not dramatically change the way we use wireless routers or wireless networking but instead consist of many incremental improvements that stack up to be a substantial upgrade.

The first big change is that Wi-Fi 6 allows for potentially faster connection speeds.

Faster Wi-Fi means better upload and download speeds (or throughput) due to the increased bandwidth afforded by Wi-Fi 6. This is becoming increasingly important as file sizes continue to increase, along with the higher data demands of streaming high-quality video and communication-heavy online gaming. Playing a multiplayer game while also streaming to Twitch requires large amounts of bandwidth and a reliable and stable connection.

Is it Time to Upgrade Your Wi-Fi?


Wi-Fi 6 and Wi-Fi 6E will have a dramatic impact on the way we interact with our wireless devices. Between the faster speeds, better traffic prioritization, and added security, Wi-Fi 6 is a significant step forward in wireless network technology.

Whether you’re gaming, working, or just streaming video, upgrading to Wi-Fi 6 is worth considering.
