Beyond the Boundaries of WiFi 6
What’s WiFi 6E?
Simply put, WiFi 6E means WiFi 6 extended to the 6 GHz band. WiFi 6E works with the same standard as WiFi 6 but with an extended spectrum. 6 GHz is the new frequency band ranging from 5.925 GHz to 7.125 GHz, allowing up to 1,200 MHz of additional spectrum. Unlike the existing bands on which channels are currently crammed into the limited spectrum, 6 GHz band exists without overlap or interference. Access to the 6 GHz frequency brings more bandwidth, faster speeds, and lower latency, opening up resources for future innovations like in AR/VR, 8K streaming and more.
*WiFi 6 is the next-gen standard in WiFi technology, also known as “AX WiFi” or “802.11ax WiFi”.

WiFi 6E Makes a Difference
Minimized Congestion with
Unlike the crowded 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands, the wide-open 6 GHz spectrum is occupied only by efficient WiFi 6 connections, removing frustrations currently caused by overcrowding on many WiFi networks. Channels on the newly opened 6 GHz band also wouldn’t overlap with each other, greatly reducing network congestion6 GHz
Wider Lanes for Faster Speeds
WiFi 6E allows for 7 additional 160 MHz channels that double bandwidth and throughput, enabling many more simultaneous transmissions at the highest possible speeds. This translates to users enjoying 8K movies, AR/VR gaming, and large file downloads—all without buffering
Improved Capacity with More Spectrum
WiFi 6E offers up to 1,200 MHz of additional spectrum for 6 GHz WiFi, fulfilling the needs of ever-increasing WiFi usage. The 1.2 GHz of contiguous spectrum more than doubles the number of pathways currently available for sending and receiving data, dramatically increasing network capacity while reducing congestion.
WiFi 6E: Unlock the Full Potential of WiFi 6
Opening the 6 GHz band will change the game for WiFi 6. WiFi 6 brings about upgraded performance in network efficiency and capacity. Whereas the advantages of WiFi 6 are not fully realized while competing with transmissions from WiFi 5 (or other radios). The 6 GHz band is available only for WiFi 6 traffic, allowing WiFi 6 to meet its intended potential.
