Cabling expert Maguire advises on preparing for WiFi 6E

Valerie Maguire, distinguished engineer with Siemon, weighs on on the FCC’s allocation of spectrum in the 6-GHz band for WiFi use.“WiFi 6E is the new WiFi Alliance terminology for IEEE 802.11ax devices that are capable of operating at 6 GHz, as well as in the 2.4-GHz and 5-GHz spectra already used by WiFi 6,” she explained. “WiFi 6E devices are expected to become available quickly, as only small changes to the antennae and front ends on existing WiFi 6 devices are required.”
