TP-Link presents its Wi-Fi 7 solutions in advance of the standard’s launch

TP-Link has presented its new solutions with support for Wi-Fi 7 wireless networks. They will be available in 2023 and will be at least one year before the official launch of the standard.

The technology industry is advancing unstoppably and manufacturers are preparing for the future. Wi-Fi 7 will be next major upgrade to the wireless connectivity standard And despite the near rollout we’re in with Wi-Fi 6 and Wi-Fi 6E, the next big standard is coming sooner than expected.

TP-Link has come up with various solutions with its support. The most interesting for our taste is the Archer BE900 stand-alone router, with a spaceship design known in the high-end range and housing 12 internal antennas, with enormous features taking advantage of the four bands of the new standard, 10G WAN/LAN ports, a RJ45 port and an RJ45/SFP+ combo port and flexibility for fiber and copper connections. Its price will be at the height of its benefits since it will cost $699.

Other solutions presented are the Archer GE800 router that the manufacturer targets the gaming segment and Deco BE95 and Deco BE85 mesh systems, which will cost $1,000 and $1,200 respectively. Much more expensive than Mesh Wi-Fi 6 systems, but it is what you have to anticipate the launch of new standards.

They will be available to reserve from December 31 for delivery in the first quarter of 2023. It must be said that the Wi-Fi Alliance is still working on the final features of the standard and will not be released until 2024, so these solutions will reach the market without official certification.

What will Wi-Fi 7 wireless networks be like?

In the absence of publishing the final specifications, we know that the new standard will be labeled with the technical name of IEEE 802.11be. The new wireless standard is being developed to achieve a extremely high performance (EHT), so we can expect improvements in transfer speeds, lower latency, better management of connected devices and spectrum expansion with higher bandwidth channels, which end up determining the data rate of a Wi-Fi signal. and ultimately increase performance.

The theoretical data transfer speed will be stratospheric compared to the 9.6 Gbps of Wi-Fi 6, up to 46Gbps. The same can be said of the bandwidth of 320MHzquadrature amplitude modulation QAM up to 4094 vs. the previous 1024 or twice the number of spatial streams from 8 to 16, and enhancements to MIMO, OFDMA, and multi-link operation (MLO) technology, which adds multiple channels in different frequency bands at the same time to improve network traffic and which is a very interesting property for streaming gaming.

In summary. Wi-Fi 7 aims strongly to really achieve a goal that the network industry has been pursuing for a long time: permanently replace wired local area networks through these wireless connections.
