For the past two years, Wi-Fi 6 has been the standard for smartphones and routers. However, we are now slowly entering the era of Wi-Fi 7. The popularization of this wireless network will take place in the future. However, we already have some Wi-Fi 7 products. As of this year, MediaTek, Broadcom and Qualcomm have all released Wi-Fi 7 wireless products. The speed can reach up to 33 Gbps, but it will take a long time to to spread Wi-Fi 7.
According to a report by industry insiders, many brands are not so optimistic about the acceptance rate of Wi-Fi 7. They believe that mass production will not enter the market until at least 2024. In addition, this network will have to wait until In 2025 or even 2026 before it can completely replace Wi-Fi 6. This means that we will have to wait three to four years before most smartphones will use this standard.
Qualcomm Networking Pro x20
A few days ago, Qualcomm officially released Networking Pro x20, the most expandable commercial Wi-Fi 7 networking solution in the world. It is also the third generation of Qualcomm’s Networking Pro series.
The Qualcomm The Wi-Fi 7 platform is driving the industry to Wi-Fi 7. Qualcomm has been a global Wi-Fi leader for more than 20 years. So it’s no surprise that Qualcomm Wi-Fi 7 is already available. The available Wi-Fi 7 range increases to 1760 MHz, an increase of almost 100 times compared to the previous Wi-Fi 3/2/1. The number of wireless channels has also increased from 1 to 3-4. In addition, the effective bandwidth reached 320 MHz. The wireless capacity of the system also increases to 33 Gbps.
The new professional networking platform of the Networking Pro x20 series that was released this time covers application scenarios such as wireless AP at the corporate level, home Mesh, mobile gateways, game routers and FAW 5G gateways. The networking Pro x20 series platform has extremely high performance and excellent deterministic latency. The maximum physical layer rate (PHY) is up to 33 Gbps (33,000 gigabits). In addition, the wireless physical layer rate of a channel also increases to 11.5 Gbps (1.15 Gbps). In addition, the user capacity of a channel exceeds 500.
As a new generation standard, Wi-Fi 7 not only improves transmission speed but also brings many new features. Includes wider channels, more efficient QAM configuration, multiple connections, custom connections and more. In February of this year, Qualcomm released the world’s first and fastest commercial Wi-Fi7 solution, the FastConnect 7800. It is also the most advanced Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity system in the industry. This is Qualcomm’s line of high-performance wireless networking products with powerful network acceleration capabilities, lower CPU usage and best industry scalability.
