MediaTek has announced that it has been selected for Wi-Fi Alliance’s Wi-Fi 6E Certification Program and will serve as a testbed for Wi-Fi 6E. The company notes that it has an access point wireless solution (MT7915-AP-AX) and a client-side wireless solution (MT7915-STA-AX) on the testbed. The company notes that these two testbed devices support unlicensed operation in the 6GHz band and include many advanced Wi-Fi 6 features like multiple resource unit (RU) sizes for optimal simultaneous OFDMA operation of multiple clients, and more.

MediaTek has the broadest Wi-Fi portfolio and is the number one Wi-Fi supplier across broadband, retail routers, consumer electronics devices and gaming with its Wi-Fi solutions that power hundreds of millions of devices every year,” said Alan Hsu, Corporate Vice President at MediaTek. “With our access point and client-side solutions as part of the Wi-Fi 6E test bed for the product certification process, we look forward to helping our customers meet the latest connectivity requirements by bringing next-generation connectivity features to the products consumers love.”

MediaTek notes that its Wi-Fi 6E access point and client products are designed for a variety of market segments. This includes: 

  • Broadband products like home gateways, access points, mesh nodes, and extenders
  • Retail devices including routers and repeaters
  • Consumer electronics such as voice assistant devices (VAD), TVs and over-the-top (OTT) products including TV sticks
  • PCs
  • 5G applications including smartphones, 5G MiFi and 5G Fixed Wireless Access (FWA) devices
  • IoT applications

MediaTek also noted that Wi-Fi 6 devices with Wi-Fi 6E support offer a number of advantages over previous Wi-Fi generation. This includes lower latency and additional capacity and speed. Further, devices using Wi-Fi 6 connections in 6GHz are designed to make use of wide 160MHz channels and uncongested bandwidth in 6GHz to deliver multigigabit, low latency Wi-Fi for better connectivity. This should enable better support for applications such as unified communications, AR/VR and more.
