Intel and Broadcom have reported testing Wi-Fi 7 at speeds of over 5 Gbps. The trial used an Intel Core-based laptop equipped with a Wi-Fi 7 transceiver that was connected to a Wi-Fi 7 access point on a Broadcom chip.

Wi-Fi 7 will be the future standard for wireless data transfer. It requires higher speeds, lower latency, greater reliability and more bandwidth. To achieve this, companies have applied new features, including wider 320 MHz channels in the unlicensed 6 GHz spectrum, higher-order 4K QAM data modulation, simultaneous connections across multiple bands with multi-channel data transmission, and technologies that increase the efficiency of transmission channels.

The new standard, according to the companies, will enable new classes of products, expand the capabilities of augmented and virtual reality technologies, ultra-high definition media streaming and improve user gaming experiences. At the same time, it will be able to support a large number of connected home and office devices.

Phil Solis, Research Director, Connectivity at IDC, said:

Wi-Fi 7 is the most powerful and capable Wi-Fi protocol yet and will allow Wi-Fi to continue to serve the most demanding applications in the consumer and vertical markets with the highest level of determinism yet. Interoperability testing between Intel and Broadcom will enable the development of products that can be used in the test beds for official Wi-Fi Alliance certification testing.
