Wi-Fi routers with 6Gbps speeds are now a reality

Wi-Fi routers with 6Gbps speeds are now a reality

Intel says it will begin shipping 802.11ax chips sometime this year.

"802.11ax chips have been built from the start for a digital and connected life", added Tal. That's why Intel has always committed our technical and commercial expertise to the development of Wi-Fi standards and to offering leading Wi-Fi products.

These performance enhancements are coming just in time to answer new demands in the smart and connected home.

In addition to that, the battery life of client devices is going to be extended with these new 802.11ax chips, while at the same time increasing network efficiency. This essentially means that if infrastructure devices based on Draft 1.0 are networking with Draft 2.0 client devices, they may experience poor performance. What's holding it back for this year are delayed product certification.

Mobile processor manufacturer Qualcomm was even earlier than Intel, as they have produced 802.11ax compliant chips as early as February of this year. It is expected that most other companies will not make 802.11ax compatible devices until 2019.

In order to offer a smooth transition process for OEMs, Intel has announced that chipsets based on the 802.11ac standard can easily upgrade to 802.11ax without any change to the host SoC. "The 802.11ax standard lets Wi-Fi be faster and smarter and supports a larger than ever number of connected appliances with the growing popularity of HD standard streaming and the culture of smart devices and home security systems". Intel will expand its home Wi-Fi portfolio with new 802.11ax chipsets for mainstream 2×2 and 4×4 home routers and gateways for cable, xDSL, fiber and consumer retail devices. The new chipsets can connect up to 256 devices and can deliver enhanced throughput for a wide range of packet sizes.

Intel has announced that it will have new 802.11ax chipsets ready within the year for next generation Wi-Fi, expected to deliver up to 40 percent higher peak data rates for a single client device in addition to an improved performance in dense or congested environments with a lot of connected devices. "Moreover, wireless transmission goes down entirely from SoC to Wi-Fi chips and thus provides the computer's engine with broadband designated for software and security functions".

Intel unveiled today at the CES consumer electronics show in Las Vegas a new generation of Wi-Fi chips that were developed in Israel and enable surfing at a speed 40% faster than the previous generation.
