Huawei has unveiled a Wi-Fi 7 with 40Gbps Wi-Fi speed as part of efforts aimed at helping all its customers to build fast, stable, and smart fully-wireless networks through innovative technologies.
The company also stated that it is committed to investing vast human capital and material resources in the Wi-Fi standard formulation.
This is just as the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) has launched the latest wireless local area network (WLAN) standard — 802.11be, also known as Extremely High Throughput (EHT), which will be officially designated as Wi-Fi 7.
Wi-Fi has evolved through seven standard generations, starting with 802.11 and now the era of Wi-Fi 7 or 802.11be.
The 6 GHz spectrum of Wi-Fi 6E is passed down to Wi-Fi 7 based on 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz. With cutting-edge features including multi-link operation, Wi-Fi 7 achieves a 4x improvement over Wi-Fi 6 in terms of space resource utilization and potential Wi-Fi speed increase of up to 46 Gbps.
According to a public report released in 2021, Huawei is on record for submitting the largest number of Wi-Fi 7 standard contributions.
The IPlytics 2021 report stated that beyond that, Huawei is also the leading contributor in terms of standard contributions for Wi-Fi 4, 5, 6, and 7 and has accumulated many innovative technologies and patents, as well as being the front-runner in the Wi-Fi industry standards.
Dr. Osama Aboul-Magd served as the chairman of the 802.11ax (Wi-Fi 6) Task Group, and Dr. Edward Au, as the technical editor of the 802.11be (Wi-Fi 7) Task Group, and has been fully involved in the formulation and release of the Wi-Fi 7 standard.
On September 20, Huawei launched the industry’s first enterprise-class Wi-Fi 7 AP at HUAWEI CONNECT 2022 in Bangkok, helping enterprises develop more innovative applications. On October 26, 2023, Huawei won the award for the “Best Enterprise Wi-Fi Network 2023” from the wireless Broadband Alliance (WBA) during it 11th WBA industry award held in France.
Huawei’s new Wi-Fi 7 AP showcases the company’s many innovations, including intelligent antenna tuning, dynamic 5GHz and 6GHz band switching, extended backhaul/power infrastructure, and IoT sensing capabilities to meet the growing traffic demands at many enterprise locations.
The outstanding technical innovations demonstrated in the Wi-Fi 7 installation at Shenzhen Talent Institute can be scaled at other high-demanding enterprise locations worldwide through the company’s global presence
Huawei AirEngine Wi-Fi 7 series APs open the door to new experiences and can connect to a large number of IoT devices simultaneously.
This in turn provides powerful performance, excellent experience, and extraordinary reliability to help enterprises construct an intelligent IoT world.
