NETWORKING

DUAL 2.5G LAN WITH WIFI 7

 

 

 

THE NEXT GEN WI-FI SOLUTION – WI-FI 7

Wi-Fi 7 is the latest wireless solution that takes a huge leap forward with multiple improvements to meet the traffic demand brought and the growing number of wireless devices.

*Windows 11 compatibility only

 

 

Wi-Fi 7 (802.11be) introduced higher speeds, wider channels, improved efficiency, and reduced latency over Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax). It also improved battery life and provided better performance in crowded environments.

 

 

 

The Wi-Fi 7 provides maximum speeds to a whopping 5.8 Gbps! 2.4 times faster than previous Wi-Fi 6/6E standards, Wi-Fi 7 is set to be the wireless standard of the future.

 

 

 

Previous Wi-Fi generations have had to make do with 160MHz channel widths. Wi-Fi 7 brings this width up to 320MHz (on 6GHz) – ensuring better reliability during simultaneous transmissions at max speeds.

 

 

 

The higher QAM(Quadrature Amplitude Modulation) value, the more data each packet can carry. Wi-Fi 7 improves the modulation scheme from 1024-QAM to 4096-QAM – boosting peak transmission rates and network capacity.

 

 

 

Wi-Fi 7 enables devices to simultaneously send and receive data across several frequency bands and channels to meet the traffic demand brought and the growing number of wireless devices.
