What’s new with Wi-Fi 7?

Along with a massive boost to speed, Wi-Fi 7 also introduces 320 MHz ultra-wide bandwidth, 4096-QAM, Multi-RU, and Multi-Link Operation, which all together make your wireless experience more reliable and efficient than ever before.

4.8 times faster

Wi-Fi 7 has a giant increase in throughput of up to 46 Gbps.

100x lower latency*

Latency is, at least, 100x lower than on Wi-Fi 6, with 15x better AR/VR performance.

5x network capacity*

With 320 MHz and MLO (Multi-Link Operation), Wi-Fi 7 provides up to 5x greater capacity than Wi-Fi 6.

What’s the difference between Wi-Fi 5,
Wi-Fi 6 and Wi-Fi 7?

Wi-Fi 5 provided a sizeable jump in wireless throughput. And although Wi-Fi 6 provided 37% faster speeds, it was designed with efficiency improvements in mind. 

Wi-Fi 7 will herald a generation of higher throughput - 480% more than previous generations. A Wi-Fi 7 router, for example, will open up your entire home to the latest online experiences thanks to backwards compatibility.

How does Wi-Fi 7 work?

Wi-Fi 7 brings a number of key innovations that will become the foundation for breathtaking digital experiences and exciting new opportunities: 

Double the width & speed.

Wi-Fi 7 unlocks the full potential of the 6 GHz band - a twofold increase in bandwidth compared to the previous generation. And widening the channel to 320MHz provides a x2 width increase, enabling a far larger amount of data to flow simultaneously at faster speeds. 

Double the streams & capacity.

MU-MIMO efficiency also doubles with Wi-Fi 7, from 8 to 16 spatial streams compared to Wi-Fi 6. With Wi-Fi 7's 16 streams, every device has enough bandwidth to run smoothly at the same time. 

Packs in 120% more data for higher speeds.

A higher-order modulation scheme improves WiFi 7’s peak rates even further with 4096-QAM. Each symbol will efficiently carry 12 bits instead of 10, which means WiFi 7 will have 20% higher theoretical transmission rates. Watching vivid 4K/8K videos, playing massive online games without lag, or live streaming from a home computer just got a lot better.

Uses every resource to the full.

Wi-Fi 7 utilises multiple Resource Units (RUs) by assigning them to a single user, unlike Wi-Fi 6 which can only send or receive frames on a single assigned RU. Wi-Fi 7 can combine RUs for greatly increased transmission efficiency and increased flexibility of the spectrum resource scheduling.

No waste or congestion.

Prior to Wi-Fi 7, bands couldn’t be fully utilised due to data exclusively being sent through the primary channel. Wi-Fi 7 innovates with Preamble Puncturing - the interference is blocked, opening more channels for use. 

Wi-Fi 7 Applications


Enjoy 4k/8k games, virtual reality, and streaming anywhere, anytime, with no lag, delay, buffering, or congestion

Leading-Edge Businesses

No more out-of-sync video calls, and congested network environments while you work from an office or from home, and load files from the cloud in a snap

Smart Homes

Along with every device in your household performing better than ever, Wi-Fi 7 will make smart home devices like voice assistants work instantly

Industrial Automation

Mission-critical infrastructure will get the reliability it deserves with Wi-Fi 7, and the huge gains to wireless capacity means you can greatly ramp up operations

Browsing is about to get much faster.

Wi-Fi 7 will be included in the latest phones, laptops, VR headsets, and more, and will revolutionise how fast browsing, app, and software responsiveness can be. Wi-Fi 7 Routers and Access Points will provide the foundation for interconnected devices in the home and in businesses.

Seeing friends, family, and
creating 3D memories will be a breeze.

Wi-Fi 7’s ability to utilise all three bands will make VR, gaming, browsing, and shopping online a significantly faster experience across the board, which will in turn provide even more opportunities for businesses to know how best to serve their customers. 

A big boost for businesses.

Wi-Fi 7 will offer a substantial increase in data transfer rates are essential to business operations, enabling faster downloads, uploads, smoother video conferencing without any buffering or lag, and unprecedented wireless connectivity.

* Maximum wireless signal rate derived from IEEE 802.11be draft specifications. Network conditions and environmental factors, including volume of network traffic, building materials and construction, and network overhead, lower actual data throughput rate. Environmental factors may adversely affect wireless signal range. An 802.11be client device is required to achieve maximum speeds
