Wi-Fi 7: Redefining Wireless Connectivity

Market Research

The imminent launch of Wi-Fi 7 heralds a new era in wireless connectivity, offering a theoretical maximum throughput of 40 Gbps, four times faster than its predecessor, Wi-Fi 6. By operating in the 6GHz band and utilizing a maximum channel width of 320MHz, Wi-Fi 7 promises to deliver significant improvements in streaming capabilities and support for cloud-based applications, video conferencing, and IoT connectivity. Its role will be pivotal in enabling industrial automation, home entertainment, smart cities, immersive technologies, and Industry 4.0. However, commercial use of Wi-Fi 7 access points is expected to be limited until 2023-2024, and Wi-Fi 6 is likely to remain the dominant technology for the next 1-2 years.

Key Takeaways: 

  • Demand for data-intensive and low-latency applications is driving the development of Wi-Fi 7. 
  • Companies like Broadcom, Intel, and Huawei are preparing for Wi-Fi 7 deployment by developing pre-standard equipment and planning for a smooth transition. 
  • Some of the critical use cases of Wi-Fi 7 in business and consumer settings include industrial automation and robotics, healthcare, remote learning, and smart homes.
