WiFi 6E

WiFi over the years has reached the status of a required utility. Nearly every smart device on the market depends on WiFi for interconnection and access to the Worldwide Web. Through the years WiFi has received continuous improvements and enhancements in the modulation protocols and expansion of the available spectrum. With the release of WiFi 6E, the latest generations of WiFi, the system received it largest allotment of new spectrum ever. On April 23rd, 2020 the FCC adopted new rules that opened 1200 MHz of new unlicensed spectrum in the 6 GHz band, creating WiFi 6E. The new band has a contiguous range of 5.925 to 7.125 GHz. This allocation not only allows many narrower band WiFi channels but also allows new wideband 160 MHz channels for very high-speed data transfer.
