Qualcomm announces the FastConnect 7800 Network Switch. Provides support for Wi-Fi 7 or 802.11be. In addition, the adapter supports Bluetooth 5.3 technology with two Bluetooth radios.
Qualcomm FastConnect 7800 Supports Wi-Fi 7, the successor to Wi-Fi 6E. Currently, the Wi-Fi 7 specification or the IEEE 802.11be standard is still a draft, but manufacturers are already developing products based on the new generation of Wi-Fi. As with Wi-Fi 6E, there is support for 2.4GHz, 5GHz, and 6GHz.
With the FastConnect 7800, this results in top speeds of up to 5.8 Gbit/s, as Qualcomm promises. This can be done over one channel of 320MHz width or two combined channels of 160MHz. If 6 GHz is not available, the speed will reach 4.3 Gbit / s, the claim is. Wi-Fi 7 allows devices to switch between 5GHz and 6GHz channels, but Qualcomm also says throughput can be bundled to avoid network congestion and provide lower latency. Qualcomm calls this High Band Simultaneous Multi-Link.
FastConnect 7800 supports Bluetooth 5.3, which includes LE Audio Jobs offers. This technology makes it possible to send several independent but simultaneous audio streams, and there is also a broadcast option. Qualcomm uses two Bluetooth radios with a network adapter to increase range and reduce pairing time. The Qualcomm FastConnect 7800 will appear in products such as laptops and smartphones from the second half of the year.
