Wi-Fi Alliance® improves Wi-Fi 6E spectral efficiency

Austin, Texas – August 17, 2021 - The recently introduced Wi-Fi 6E certification program from Wi-Fi Alliance® is driving unprecedented growth in the introduction of Wi-Fi® devices into 6 GHz. Updates to this program will further enhance spectral efficiency and optimize 6 GHz network performance by minimizing Wi-Fi 6E signaling while delivering the security, reliability, and interoperability inherent to Wi-Fi CERTIFIED™ products. Our updated certification program will include enhanced test coverage to ensure devices take advantage of out-of-band discovery mechanisms intended for multi-band network deployments. This effort, yet again, demonstrates the industry’s commitment to improving spectral efficiency with each new generation of Wi-Fi technology.
