As a result of increasing demand for high data applications such as streaming media/TV/audio, social media and smart home devices, there has been an initiative to open up additional frequency bands to complement the existing 2.4 and 5 GHz bands. This new spectrum is expected to be made available by regulators around the world and it represents an opportunity to deliver the benefits of Wi-Fi 6 coupled with increased bandwidth available in the new 6 GHz band.

“The 6 GHz band addresses the growing need for Wi-Fi spectrum capacity to ensure users continue to experience reliable and seamless connectivity,” said Kevin Robinson, SVP of Marketing, Wi-Fi Alliance. “We are glad to see Wi-Fi Alliance members working closely in Wi-Fi Alliance to ensure that new products meet high standards for interoperability and security.”
