What is Wi-Fi 6E?
Wi-Fi 6E is Wi-Fi 6 Extended to the 6GHz Band.
It's easy to get confused by the 2 different 6's. So here's the distinction between the two:
The "6" in "Wi-Fi 6E" refers to the "generation 6" of the Wi-Fi technology.
The "E" refers to the latest extension of the standard that uses a new frequency band which gives it a great advantage. Similar to the existing Wi-Fi bands, the new spectrum and its use policy vary between geographies and regulations. Currently, the "6GHz spectrum" for the European markets is 5.925GHz to 6.425GHz, and for the US markets between 5.925GHz to 7.125GHz.
Wi-Fi 6 technology brings advancements that result in better efficiency, reduced congestion, lower latency, and longer battery life for end devices.
Utilizing these advantages over the new 6GHz band magnifies those advantages to a whole new level as legacy/older protocols than Wi-Fi 6 technology would be prohibited in this band.
Operating Wi-Fi in the 6GHz band doubles the effective throughputs since it includes multiple 160MHz channels, compared to the practical 80MHz channels in 5GHz and 20MHz channels in 2.4GHz bands.
Wi-Fi 6E offers a higher number of non-overlapping 160MHz channels, which helps reduce congestion, particularly in areas where lots of networks are operating such as multi-dwelling units (MDUs), enterprises, and venues.
