To wait a few months. Mediatek, one of the leading semiconductor and consumer technology companies in the global industry, has just made an announcement that has surprised millions of users. The company confirmed that it will demonstrate the speed of its new Wi-Fi 7 standard in the middle of its presentations at the traditional fair of CES 2022 (Consumer Electronics Show). Wi-Fi 6 it has barely reached consumers, but its successor could significantly surpass it in speed.
The company confirmed its plans during the recent Mediatek Summit last Friday, November 19. At the event, they assured that Wi-Fi 7 could exceed up to 2.4 times the speed from Wi-Fi 6E even using the same number of antennas.
The person responsible for the demonstration will be nothing less than James chen associate vice president of product marketing for the brand. He revealed that his intentions are to position himself as a leader in wireless internet technology.
With this fact, Mediatek would become one of the pioneers in this standard that is still a long way from reaching domestic users, since, according to a report by the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE), international consensus would still have to wait until 2024 to be carried out.
According to the same IEEE report, Wi-Fi 7 technology would be capable of reaching speeds of up to 40 gigabits per second. In this sense, there is still much to compare with other similar initiatives, such as those of Qualcomm in 2019. In this year, the American multinational commented that this standard could even use bands of 2.4 GHz 5 GHz And till 6 GHz.
