Huawei has unveiled a Wi-Fi 7 with 40Gbps Wi-Fi speed as part of efforts aimed at helping all its customers to build fast, stable, and smart fully-wireless networks through innovative technologies.
The company also stated that it is committed to investing vast human capital and material resources in the Wi-Fi standard formulation.
This is just as the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) has launched the latest wireless local area network (WLAN) standard — 802.11be, also known as Extremely High Throughput (EHT), which will be officially designated as Wi-Fi 7.
Wi-Fi has evolved through seven standard generations, starting with 802.11 and now the era of Wi-Fi 7 or 802.11be.
The 6 GHz spectrum of Wi-Fi 6E is passed down to Wi-Fi 7 based on 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz. With cutting-edge features including multi-link operation, Wi-Fi 7 achieves a 4x improvement over Wi-Fi 6 in terms of space resource utilization and potential Wi-Fi speed increase of up to 46 Gbps.
According to a public report released in 2021, Huawei is on record for submitting the largest number of Wi-Fi 7 standard contributions.
