Wi-Fi Trends: Wi-Fi 6E, Wi-Fi 7, WPA3 & More

Development and trends in enterprise wireless networking

For users, Wi-Fi is ubiquitous and binary: it either works or it doesn’t. For companies and engineers that need to provide Wi-Fi networks that “just work”, things are not so simple. Wireless comes in all kinds of shapes and forms, all with its own specific set of challenges and benefits.

In this webinar we went through the timeline of the IEEE802.11, focusing on the latest innovations and some interesting developments such as next generation positioning, light, and even more speed. We explained the difference between acronyms like Wi-Fi 6, Wi-Fi 6E, Wi-Fi 7, and how/if you should deploy them in your own wireless network. We also covered some promising innovations in Wi-Fi security (WPA3) areas and explain interesting things about wireless power, Wi-Fi use cases in IoT, and more.



  • New IEEE 802.11 standards: 11az, 802.11bb, 802.11be, 802.11bf
  • Security upgrades in Wi-Fi: WPA3
  • Wi-Fi 6 and Wi-Fi 6E adoption
  • Future innovations in wireless power, IoT, and Wi-Fi coexistence with xG technologies

Wi-Fi 6E: A Big Step Forward in Wi-Fi Communication

What is Wi-Fi 6E? And how does this relate to the other frequencies? What more, if at all, will it offer? The answers to these questions can only be given if we also briefly look back at Wi-Fi in general. In this way it will become clear what is going to change and improve.
