For the past two years, Wi-Fi 6 has been the standard for smartphones and routers. Now, however, we are slowly entering the era of Wi-Fi 7. The promotion 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 launched wireless products with Wi-Fi 7. The speed can reach 33Gbps, but it will take a long time to promote Wi-Fi 7.
According to a report by industry insiders, many brands are less optimistic about the level of Wi-Fi 7 adoption. They believe that mass production will not enter the market until at least 2024. In addition, this network will have to wait until 2025 or even 2026 before it can completely replace Wi-Fi 6. That means we’ll have to wait three to four years before most smartphones use this standard.
Qualcomm Networking Pro x20
A few days ago, Qualcomm officially launched Networking Pro x20, the world’s most scalable commercial Wi-Fi 7 solution. It is also the third generation of Qualcomm’s Networking Pro series.
IN Qualcomm The Wi-Fi 7 platform is leading the industry’s transition to Wi-Fi 7. Qualcomm has been a world leader in Wi-Fi for more than 20 years. So it’s no surprise that Qualcomm Wi-Fi 7 is now available. The available spectrum of Wi-Fi 7 is increased to 1760MHz, an increase of nearly 100 times compared to the earlier Wi-Fi 3/2/1. The number of wireless channels has also increased from 1 to 3-4. In addition, the effective bandwidth reached 320MHz. The wireless capacity of the system is also increased to 33Gbps.
The new professional networking platform from the Networking Pro x20 series, launched this time, covers application scenarios such as enterprise-level wireless APs, home networks, operator gateways, game routers and 5G FAW gateways. The Networking Pro x20 series platform has extremely high bandwidth and excellent determinacy. Its maximum physical layer speed (PHY) is up to 33 Gbps (33,000 gigabits). In addition, the speed of the wireless physical layer of a channel is also increased to 11.5 Gbps (1.15 Gbps). In addition, the user capacity of one channel exceeds 500.
As a new generation standard, Wi-Fi 7 not only improves transmission speed, but also brings many new features. It includes wider channels, more efficient QAM modulation, multiple connections, adaptive connections and more. In February this year, Qualcomm launched the world’s first and fastest commercial Wi-Fi7 solution, FastConnect 7800. It is also the most advanced mobile Wi-Fi and Bluetooth system in the industry. This is Qualcomm’s highest-performance wireless networking product line, with powerful network acceleration capabilities, lower CPU usage and the best scalability in the industry.
