Legacy Wi-Fi devices have utilized the 2.4-GHz and 5-GHz Wi-Fi bands for decades. Now with the latest addition of Wi-Fi 6, which supports 2.4-GHz, 5-GHz and future 6-GHz bands, there are essentially six generations of Wi-Fi devices sharing the crowded 2.4-GHz and 5-GHz bands in which end-user applications are constantly competing for airtime.
These bands will soon become overloaded due to the growth of wireless connectivity and data. The solution to this challenge comes in the form of spectrum globally available in the 6-GHz band for Wi-Fi.
6-GHz Wi-Fi will allow multiple 160 MHz channels to enable the next wave of multi-gigabit applications at home and office, thereby realizing the full potential of Wi-Fi 6. In addition, the 6-GHz band offers a wide bandwidth with little radio signal interference from other sources, such as microwave ovens, wireless headsets and cordless phones.
