Extremely High Throughput to Be the Foundation of Wi-Fi 7 


Though 802.11ax (now also known as Wi-Fi 6) is only just beginning to hit the market, the IEEE 802.11 Working Group approved the formation of a new topic interest group called Extremely High Throughput (EHT) earlier this year to discuss the first steps toward developing the successor to 802.11ax. The complete task group that will work on the new standard is likely to be formed in May 2019, with an initial target completion date of two years. The primary objectives of EHT will be to increase peak throughput and improve network efficiency while better supporting higher throughput and low latency applications, including video, gaming, and Augmented Reality/Virtual Reality (AR/VR) applications.

Pushing Wi-Fi into the 6 GHz Band 


Though there is still much being discussed behind the scenes, and everything has yet to be finalized, a rough shape is forming that highlights not only what the next generation of Wi-Fi will target but also how this will be achieved on a …
