What is Wi-Fi 6E: Routers, devices and how it’s better than Wi-Fi 6

Only one year after the release of Wifi 6Wi-Fi 6E has arrived even more powerful to change the way you think and use wireless data. The latest wireless standard adds a new 6GHz transmission band while also unlocking a large number of high-performance data channels.

With a maximum theoretical speed of 3.6Gbps according to Qualcomm, Wi-Fi 6E can dramatically boost data delivery to new levels. Unfortunately, the latest wireless standard suffers from limited range.

What is Wi-Fi 6E?

Based on the 802.11ax specification from the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), Wi-Fi 6E 1.2 GHz opens the high-frequency spectrum from 5.925 to 7.125 GHz to transmit huge blocks of data. This makes it the biggest Wi-Fi addition since the original 802.11b device came out more than 20 years ago.

“This is a huge leap forward for Wi-Fi,” says Kevin Robinson, senior vice president of marketing for the Wi-Fi Alliance. “It pushes performance to the max and can help enable new uses.”
