In the past two years, the Wi-Fi 6 wireless network has been recognized by everyone. The current mobile phones and routers have almost supported this standard. It is no problem to exceed the Gigabit bandwidth of the home. In the next generation of wireless, it is Wi-Fi 7. Qualcomm recently demonstrated the actual speed of Wi-Fi 7 to reach 5Gbps.
At the IFA 2022 conference, Qualcomm showed the performance of the Wi-Fi 7 wireless network. Through the FastConnect 7800 wireless solution released by Qualcomm in February, HBS technology can also support 160MHzHz bandwidth each under 5GHz and 6GHz bands. 5Gbps speed.
At present, the speed of 5G network is 1Gbps. The speed of Qualcomm Wi-Fi 7 is almost 10 times that of 5G, which is also close to the maximum value of 5.8Gbps announced before Qualcomm.
According to the news of Qualcomm, their Wi-Fi 7 chips have been shipped to customers, and terminal products are expected to be listed before the end of this year.
The Wi-Fi 7 penetration curve will be similar to Wi-Fi 6. It is expected that most high-end Android phones will use Wi-Fi 7 in 2023. By 2023-2024, the Wi-Fi 7 penetration rate is expected to reach 10%.
However, if Wi-Fi 7 wants to fully popularize and replace Wi-Fi 6 to become the mainstream of the market, it will wait until 2025 or even 2026, and there are three or four years.
