Intel Wi-Fi 7 Demo

Intel announced today that they teamed up with Broadcom to achieve an important Wi-Fi 7 industry milestone, "With the world's first cross-vendor Wi-Fi 7 demonstration, the wireless future has arrived". According to reports, the Wi-Fi 7 cross-vendor demonstration speed exceeded 5Gbps, based on a Core laptop + Broadcom Wi-Fi 7 access point.

"Today's milestone sends a clear message: the ecosystem is ready, and Wi-Fi 7 is here to bring extraordinary capacity and incredible speeds to further expand gigabit broadband," said Vijay Nagarajan, vice president of Broadcom's Wireless Connectivity Division. ."

Intel says Wi-Fi 7 can bring higher speeds, lower latency, higher reliability, and greater capacity, including 320MHz channel bandwidth (double the speed) in unlicensed 6GHz spectrum, 4K QAM quadrature amplitude modulation (up to 20% faster), multi-link operation MLO (increased throughput, link robustness, roaming, interference mitigation, and reduced latency), as well as improved through the multi-resource unit (MRU) and puncturing channel utilization.

The Wi-Fi 7 standard has not yet been finalized, and its product solution is only a semi-finished product solution based on the functions defined in the IEEE P802.11be draft amendment. Intel reportedly plans to launch Wi-Fi 7 certified products in line with the Wi-Fi Alliance certification schedule (2023-2024 time frame)

In August of this year, Intel mentioned that it is developing Wi-Fi 7 (802.11be) chips in order to obtain alliance certification as soon as possible. These chips will be installed on PC products such as notebooks in 2024 and become mainstream in 2025.
