In 2021, the new 6 GHz band was introduced into Wi-Fi and formed the main features in Wi-Fi 6E variation. We now have a potential glimpse into the next generation Wi-Fi 7 and what it could bring us. Inheriting the wide 6 GHz band, Wi-Fi 7 promises huge speed improvement with 320 Mhz channels and 4K QAM—that’s 240% speed boosting, which makes 30 Gbps Wi-Fi possible to come true.
Wi-Fi 7 is likely to introduce 16×16 CMU-MIMO. With C meaning coordinated, it will allow our clients to transmit all simultaneously at reduced latency. It will also make full use of multiple nearby access points, greatly enhancing spectrum efficiency. According to engineers from the Wi-Fi Alliance, this could be the most significant breakthrough for the new standard. Wi-Fi 7 provides more speeds and teaches the clients to better share a network rather than competing for it.
The last fifteen years have seen a rapid increase in computing speeds, with drives reading at 10 Gbps or more. However, networks have not yet caught up, which can feel like a bottleneck between devices. When transferring data between devices reaches your network limits, multi-Gigabit is the solution.
Multi-Gigabit wired connection has been around in the corporate world for years. With the increased demand for high-quality media at home, the consumer need for multi-gigabit Internet is snowballing. Since 2019, TP-Link launched a few multi-gigabit ports SOHO products, such as Archer AX11000, Archer AX90, and Deco X90.
TP-Link seeks to fill in these needs over the next ten years by providing more multi-Gigabit networking devices for the consumer market. Whether it is for LAN parties, live streaming, or home offices, multi-gigabit wire connections throughout the home will form the ultra-fast backbone for other peripheral connections.
True Wireless Homes
We have already seen the development of the wireless world. Still, there is a big question about how wireless we can become as a society. The increased use of raw data transferring and wireless charging for devices is one area that has become popular for many providers.
Suppose you want to transfer something raw and uncompressed wirelessly, for example, connecting a display with a TV set or PC. In that case, you have had technologies like WiDi or Airplay. However, the high bandwidth requirement of the raw image data is limited to a resolution maxing out at 1080p. When latency is not guaranteed, people can only use these set-ups for playing videos rather than the high-impact gaming they are hoping to implement.
Once the 30 Gbps Wi-Fi 7 arrives in the coming 10 years, things could change. The traditional monitor cable could face competition from Wi-Fi as an alternative data transfer method. The use of QR codes, while common now, could be all that is needed to sync devices together in the first-time setup.
Keep in mind that we are not yet rid of the power cord. Furniture manufacturers may look more often to provide wireless charging pads within their products for everyone’s convenience. It is also worth considering the possibility of an entirely wireless future, with homes and offices providing wireless charging from the walls.
Research is currently underway to provide wireless charging from a few meters away rather than on a specific wireless charging device. Once this technology is installed in more homes and offices, there is less need for wires to charge or even power any devices.
As technology moves away from the need for wires, devices will become more compact, sleek, and delicate. Your computer and TV entertainment set-ups will become far more elegant as wireless devices connect directly to each other.
6G and beyond
It is entirely possible that in ten years, 5G technology will have been fully embraced, and society will begin introducing 6G. Research in this field has already started, with several countries and companies already conducting high-level research.
China has already launched an experimental test satellite. Similarly, a group of companies including AT&T, Ericsson, Telus, Verizon, T-Mobile, Microsoft, and Samsung has already joined together as the “Next G Alliance.”
6G is thought to support applications beyond current mobile use scenarios, such as VR, AR, instant communications, and IoT. Many intelligent and IoT devices will support 6G technology, so seeing how Tapo, Kasa, and Vigi devices can move forward with these technological developments. Current theory suggests that 6G could support speeds of up to 100 Gbps with very low latency, supporting hundreds or even thousands of devices at once.
Founded in 1996, TP-Link is a global provider of reliable networking devices and accessories, involved in all aspects of everyday life. The company has consistently been ranked by analyst firm IDC as the No. 1 provider of WLAN products, supplying more than 170 countries and serving billions of people worldwide.
With a proven heritage of quality, performance, and value, TP-Link has curated a portfolio of products that meet the networking needs of all customers. Now, as the connected lifestyle continues to evolve, TP-Link is expanding today to exceed the demands of tomorrow.
