Intel announced that it recently joined with Broadcom to successfully conduct the industry’s first cross-vendor Wi-Fi 7 demonstration, with wireless transmission speeds exceeding 5 Gbps in the 6 GHz band. the trial used laptops with Intel Core processors, Wi-Fi 7 chipsets, and connected to Broadcom’s Wi-Fi 7 access points.

As a comparison, Wi-Fi 6E 6GHz band speed is only up to 2.5Gbps, Wi-Fi 6E 5GHz band is only able to run to 1Gbps, Wi-Fi 7 is 2 times and 5 times of them respectively.
Meanwhile, the interoperability test between Intel and Broadcom will help develop related products for the official Wi-Fi Alliance certification test platform, and there is hope that the future will bring more than 10Gbps speed for global consumers and enterprises.

With higher speeds, lower latency, improved reliability, and greater capacity for the wireless experience of the next decade, Wi-Fi 7 leverages new features, including a wider 320 MHz channel in the unlicensed 6 GHz spectrum, higher-order 4K QAM digital signal modulation and demodulation technology, concurrent connectivity across multiple frequency bands through multi-link operation, and improved channel utilization through multiple resource unit perforation (MRU). The Wi-Fi 7’s deterministic operation supports
The deterministic operation of Wi-Fi 7 supports new product categories, including augmented and virtual reality, 16K UHD resolution media streaming, ultra-fast responsive and reliable gaming experiences, and networking of a large number of devices at home or in the office.
