We are currently witnessing significant momentum for Wi-Fi. The latest generation of Wi-Fi, Wi-Fi 6, was launched in August 2019 and is set to significantly improve wireless performance in homes, enterprises, industrial settings, to name a few. To add to this, the FCC recently voted to open the 6 GHz band (5925-7125 MHz) for unlicensed spectrum use and an extension to Wi-Fi 6, known as Wi-Fi 6E, is expected to come to market in late 2020 to make use of this additional spectrum. These achievements lay the groundwork for significant improvements in the Wi-Fi experience for users across the world. As we watch these developments unfold, the industry has already begun exploring the next frontier. Join experts from Senza Fili and Intel for a lively discussion on the developments and connectivity solutions that will comprise the future beyond Wi-Fi 6.
