Wi-Fi Alliance has announced the release of its new connectivity service, Wi-Fi certified 7, which is designed for home, enterprise and industrial environments and works to optimize Wi-Fi “at an unprecedented level.” The announcement coincides with the company’s presence at CES.
“This will have a significant impact on consumers and businesses alike,” the company said in a statement. “From gaming and streaming to industrial IoT to XR/VR/AR and beyond…new use cases will advance as a result of the latest Wi-Fi generation.”
Wi-Fi Alliance said the service was created with interoperability in mind, as well as a “robust” device ecosystem.
“Wi-Fi 7 will see rapid adoption across a broad ecosystem with more than 233 million devices expected to enter the market in 2024, growing to 2.1 billion devices by 2028,” the company said. “Smartphones, PCs, tablets, and access points will be the earliest adopters of Wi-Fi 7, and customer premises equipment and augmented and virtual reality (AR/VR) equipment will continue to gain early market traction.”
Early adopters include Broadcom, CommScope, Intel, MaxLinear, MediaTek and Qualcomm, with these companies acting as the test bed for certification.
"The introduction of Wi-Fi certified 7 marks the emergence of the latest generation in the evolution of wireless connectivity,” said Kevin Robinson, Wi-Fi Alliance’s CEO. “This certification underscores our relentless commitment to delivering cutting-edge technology that redefines the way users experience Wi-Fi, providing faster speeds, improved efficiency, and increased reliability which expand the horizons of what is possible through Wi-Fi."
