Wi-Fi 6E Begins Rollout, Ushering in New Functionality

Wi-Fi 6E, the biggest upgrade to the technology in decades, is on the horizon.

This new era of Wi-Fi technology is possible thanks to an expansion of wireless airwaves for consumer technology, which were made accessible by the FCC early in 2020, and smartphones, laptops, PCs and more will likely include the functionality as 6E rolls out.

However, that rollout is set to be a gradual one. In fact, IDC predicts that, by 2022, only 20% of Wi-Fi 6 products will also be compatible with Wi-Fi 6E.

On this industry update, hosts Tyler Kern and Daniel Litwin tackle the implications of this step forward in Wi-Fi and consumer connectivity, focusing on how the technology might help the world adapt to a “smarter” future in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic and its sweeping changes to the ways we interact with one another.

Because of those effects, while Wi-Fi 6’s rollout has been glacial, Wi-Fi 6E might receive a bit of a boost in hopes that it can play a role in the world’s recovery and march toward a more interconnected future.

It should mean a boost in crafting the future of the decentralized workplace, encouraging even more remote but high quality work due to faster Wi-Fi speeds, which means more efficient collaboration and more high quality video and audio for meetings or recordings.

Key Points:

  1. Wi-Fi 6E is the tech’s biggest upgrade in decades.
  2. Functionality will extend to a wide range of consumer devices, including smartphones and PCs.
  3. CES 2021 will provide a better look at the devices and companies leading the charge.
