The first live demo of Wi-Fi 7 technology by MediaTek – Thunderbolt 3 speed The first phones equipped with the Wi-Fi 6 standard It entered the market in 2019, and then a few companies started producing devices with Wi-Fi 6E standard. With this in mind, Wi-Fi 6 technology is a relatively new phenomenon, and users are certainly satisfied with its speed increase compared to the previous Wi-Fi generation, but this satisfaction may not last long, because we recently found out that the Wi-Fi 7 standard is also is on the way. On Wednesday, January 19, 2022 (29th January 1400), Mediatek Company, for the first time in the world, introduced Wi-Fi 7 technology live to its key customers and industrial partners

Alan Hsu, from Mediatech officials, believes that Wi-Fi 7 technology will soon become the main pillar of networks. It has become domestic, office and industrial and provides smooth and perfect connection for various functions; From multi-user AR/VR applications and cloud gaming to 4K calls and 8K content streaming. Evidence suggests that Wi-Fi 7 can be compared to Thunderbolt 3 – in terms of speed.

Wi-Fi 7 technology is called IEEE 802.11be in technical language and Mediatek has developed it based on a platform called Filogic. While showing how the Wi-Fi 7 standard can reach the maximum speed defined in IEEE 802.11be, Mediatek showed what role MLO (short for multi-link operation) technology plays in the realization of Wi-Fi 7. MLO technology can combine several channels with different frequency bands at the same time. This determines how network traffic can flow smoothly (even if the bands are jammed or congested).

According to Mario Morales, vice president of the semiconductor group at IDC, what Demand for Wi-Fi 6, Wi-Fi 6E, and soon Wi-Fi 7 is driving the need for faster broadband Internet and more demanding functions such as higher-resolution video streaming and virtual reality gaming. According to Morales, Wi-Fi 7’s improvements in channel width, QAM modulation, as well as new features such as multi-link operation, make Wi-Fi 7 very attractive to devices such as flagship smartphones, PCs, consumer devices and vertical industries (such as retail).

Consumers today rely on Wi-Fi for many of their daily tasks – including video calls, streaming 4K and 8K TV content, gaming, and more. – They need fast, reliable and always connected Wi-Fi. According to Moon Ho Lee, president of Korea Mercury, Wi-Fi 7 technology can address these needs while opening doors to future virtual and augmented reality functions that may not be in our imagination today.

Wi-Fi 7 is unique in that it offers completely new capabilities across all spectrums available for Wi-Fi use – including the 2.4 GHz, 5 GHz and 6 GHz bands. Due to the support of QAM modulation technology (of 4K type) and the use of 320 MHz channels, Wi-Fi 7 standard is up to 2.4 times faster than Wi-Fi 6 (even with the same number of antennas). Other notable features of Wi-Fi 7 include: MLO to reduce latency with Wi-Fi transmission in multiple bands, as well as “Multi-User Resource Unit” or MRU capabilities to avoid interference and reduce the effect .

In the end, it should be noted that according to Mediatek, products equipped with Wi-Fi 7 will enter the market in 2023. But according to some experts, this prediction seems a bit optimistic, because the Wi-Fi Alliance does not intend to finalize this new standard until early 2024.
