In late 2020, the Wi-Fi Alliance announced Wi-Fi 6E as an extension for certifying the 802.11ax features and Wi-Fi 6 capabilities in the 6 GHz band.
Wi-Fi 6E is the industry name that identifies Wi-Fi devices that operate in 6 GHz. Wi-Fi 6E has all the characteristics of Wi-Fi 6, including orthogonal frequency-division multiple access (OFDMA) and Target Wake Time (TWT). When extended to the 6 GHz band, these new features deliver a significantly improved connection.
If in terms of features, Wi-Fi 6E is the same as Wi-Fi 6, why do we even need Wi-Fi 6E?
This white paper takes a deep dive into the benefits of Wi-Fi 6E and key considerations you need to know when making the decision whether or not to adopt it for your next design.
