Wi-Fi 7

Leading the next generation of connectivity

Always-connected, reliable and fast Wi-Fi connections

The World’s First Live Demos of Wi-Fi 7 Technology

In January 2022, MediaTek showcased two Wi-Fi 7 demos to key customers and industry collaborators, demonstrating the technology’s super-fast speeds and low latency transmission. MediaTek’s live demos exhibited how its Wi-Fi 7 technology can achieve the maximum speed defined by IEEE 802.11be and its multi-link operation (MLO) technology.

What is Multi-link operation (MLO)?

MLO technology aggregates multiple channels on different frequencies bands at the same time to highlight how network traffic can still flow seamlessly even if there is interference or congestion. MLO technology will be critical for delivering faster and more reliable video streaming, gaming and anything else that requires constant, sustained and real-time throughput.

Wi-Fi 7 key advantages over Wi-Fi 6

There are many core improvements in Wi-Fi 7 that enhance the wireless experience by handling wireless connections more efficiently.

This greatly increases speeds, allows more effective mesh networks, and provides the very latest interference mitigation techniques to ensure wireless devices are always connected fast and reliably, even in dense network environments.

Faster: Close to 4X the wireless datalink performance, delivering over 36Gbps

More Reliable: New Multiple Resource Unit (MRU) lowers multiple user latency by 25%

Always-on Connected: New Multi-Link Operation (MLO) improves single user latency by 80% and throughput gains of up to 300%

Wi-Fi Alliance Working closely to set the Standard

802.11be standard

The final version of the 802.11be standard is expected to be published by late 2023, and to complete approval by early 2024. Meanwhile, the Wi-Fi Alliance is also working on Wi-Fi 7 program based on IEEE802.11be SPEC Draft 1.3.

Wi-Fi Alliance

MediaTek works closely with the Wi-Fi Alliance and has been involved in the development of the Wi-Fi 7 standard since its inception, as such, we are the first one of the first adopters of Wi-Fi 7 technology, and the first to showcase hardware in action.
