Sometimes WiFi seems to be just WiFi: you can connect to it and you have the Internet. However, there is a difference between the different generations of WiFi networks. For now, the latest addition is WiFi 6E. Here’s what that means and what you can do with it.
6 GHz frequency
It has been possible to use the 6 GHz frequency in the Netherlands since this quarter. This is the first time. Since there are a lot of people at home now WiFi connections You can choose between 2.4GHz and 5GHz, and soon you will also be able to use 6GHz. You can achieve faster speeds with this, in part because there are no devices connected to this frequency yet. Upcoming devices need high speeds and this is where the 6GHz frequency comes in handy. This one is fast and stable.
For example, the 5GHz band cannot handle both 8K TV broadcasts and VR glasses. This makes the new band a lifesaver. This isn’t just nice for other bands because they can’t handle the latest gadgets: it also helps that there will soon be three options in terms of connections, so that devices can make relative WiFi use.
Split your tires
For example, it is recommended that your smart home devices run on the 2.4GHz band (they don’t need that much), your smartphone and regular smart TV on 5GHz and the latest devices on 6GHz. Who knows how much WiFi the Metaverse will need in the future: developments follow each other in quick succession. For example, also in the field of online games. The more it happens in VR, where the internet connection should help create a completely different world where you are in the middle and also push the buttons, the more demand the 6GHz connection.
Now you might be wondering why not just do it Wifi 6 Male. Sometimes this is done, but at the beginning of 2020, the Wi-Fi Alliance decided to go with WiFi 6E. E states that the device can work on WiFi 6, that’s it. We hope that soon more and more devices will be equipped with WiFi 6E support, because at CES we saw beautiful things go by.
