Wi-Fi 6E for business WLANs

The wide range of the new spectrum will allow for greater network flexibility, better performance and a better experience for all users without the influence of users using devices with older Wi-Fi standards.

Should my smartphone be able to operate on a Wi-Fi network according to the latest standards? You know that network we activate when we’re near a Wi-Fi access device at a company, at an airport, in a mall, university, or at home.

At the end of 2021, there were just over 30 smartphones with a radio interface in accordance with the Wi-Fi 6 standard, which are of course also useful for older generations of Wi-Fi networks.

At the moment, there are only two models of smartphones that also work in the latest Wi-Fi 6E network. A case of Galaxy Z Fold 3 SG in Google Pixel 6 and 6 Pro. If you wait until the Chinese New Year, the choice will undoubtedly be greater. There somewhere up to eight different models. And where you will connect to the Wi-Fi 6E network? At the moment, nowhere else in Slovenia.

Wi-Fi 6E enables operation in the new 6 GHz frequency range

The Wi-Fi 6E standard, set by the IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers) 802.11 ax, is a Wi-Fi 6 standard extended to the newly released 6 GHz spectrum. In late April 2020, the FCC (Federal Communications Commission) of the United States voted to allow the unlicensed use of the 6 GHz band. This allowed 1200 MHz (5.925 to 7.125 GHz) spectrum for devices such as Wi-Fi access points. Previously, devices operating in this band had to be licensed. That added spectrum is the biggest change in Wi-Fi wireless networks, since the initial allocation of ISM (Industrial, Scientific and Medical) frequency bands in 1985.

In other frequency bands currently used for Wi-Fi networks, only 260 MHz of unlimited spectrum is available. Although there are differences between countries in terms of the individual channels available, it is in principle available:

  • 80 MHz unlimited in the 2.4 GHz ISM band.
  • 180 MHz unlimited in the 5 GHz band.
  • 500 MHz, which requires dynamic frequency selection (DFS) in the 5 GHz band.

New business access networks with Wi-Fi 6E compliant services

The new WLAN Wi-Fi 6E standards promise a significant increase in performance. Do you want such a Wi-Fi access network in your company? In this case, you will need to plan new networks or upgrade existing ones consider some facts >>
