What is WiFi 7?

The newest WiFi standard, WiFi 7, also known as IEEE 802.11be Extremely High Throughput (EHT), was built as a solution to deliver faster speeds, less interference and greater efficiency for today’s increasing high-bandwidth online activities.
If you’re struggling with constant buffering, lag, or congestion, WiFi 7 routers can be your ideal choice.

What WiFi 7 Offers ?

  • 4.8×

    Accelerates throughput up to 46 Gbps for experiencing ultra-smooth 8K streaming.*

  • 100×
    Lower Latency**

    Worst Case Latency is 100× better compared to WiFi 6 with 15× better AR/VR performance.

  • Network Capacity**

    With 320 MHz and MLO (Multi-Link Operation), WiFi 7 provides up to 5× larger capacity than WiFi 6 to handle more connected devices.

How Does WiFi 7 Work?

These exciting enhancements and major lifestyle changes are made possible by WiFi 7's innovative technologies. All these breakthroughs will help the digital age to enjoy even more eye-opening experiences.

Double Width, Double Speed

320 MHz High-Capacity Channels

WiFi 7 unleashes the full potential of the 6 GHz spectrum to double the bandwidth compared with WiFi 6. Extending channel width to 320 MHz also enables many more simultaneous transmissions at the fastest possible speeds.


Double the Streams, Double the Capacity

16 × 16 MU-MIMO

WiFi 7 increases the number of spatial streams from 8 to 16 and the theoretical physical transmission rate is thus doubled compared with WiFi 6. 16 × 16 MU-MIMO guarantees stable connections and smooth experiences for your connected devices simultaneously whether they are streaming, downloading and playing online games.


12 bits per symbol

10 bits per symbol

20% More Data Transmission,
Higher Speed


With 4K-QAM modulation, each symbol carries 12 bits rather than 10 bits, which packs in 20% more data at a time for online gaming, live streaming, downloading and more.

No Waste, No Congestion

Preamble Puncturing

Channels with signal interference become unavailable. Based on preamble puncturing, your WiFi can avoid channels with interference and use the additional channels to transmit your data. No more worrying about your neighbors’ WiFi interference!

With Preamble Puncturing


Channels are available

Without Preamble Puncturing


Channels are wasted


Not Used





Makes Full Use of Every Resource


With WiFi 6, each user can only send or receive frames on an assigned resource unit (RU), which significantly limits the flexibility of the spectrum resource scheduling. To solve this problem and further enhance spectral efficiency, WiFi 7 allows multiple RUs to be assigned to a single user and can combine RUs for increased transmission efficiency.

What’s Different from the Previous Generations?

Wi-Fi 7 delivers next-gen wireless, making giant strides  in throughput — 480% more than previous generati ons. Thanks to backward compatibility, a WiFi 7 router opens up your entire home to the latest online experiences.
