0

DUBLIN, May 16, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — The “Progress in Wireless LAN Development” report has been added to from ResearchAndMarkets.com offer.

The objective of the report is to analyze the advanced Wi-Fi technologies recently introduced or still in development, their applications and their market. It also studies related industries.

This report discusses recent or planned improvements to one of the most established and powerful wireless technologies – Wi-Fi. Originating in the 1920s, this WLAN family belongs to a very small group of communication technologies that only become not obsolete over time.

The family continues to grow with new members that put WLAN at the forefront of today’s innovations in multi-application communications and push the boundaries of performance. Wi-Fi will support and strengthen 5G networks by making them more flexible and efficient.

The report details the technical and marketing specifics of these types of WLAN technologies, studies their industries and shows that Wi-Fi 6 is ready to meet certain requirements of 5G; with incoming Wi-Fi 7 offering an even wider array of advanced features.

The report has been developed for technical and management personnel working on Wi-Fi related projects to enable them to better understand the specifics of technologies and markets in this family.

The report also includes the survey of patents related to Wi-Fi technologies for 2018-2022.

In particular, it addresses developments such as:

  • 802.11n (Wi-Fi 4). The technology has already created a multi-billion dollar market, improving communication characteristics such as transmission rate, coverage, etc. It has greatly increased the spectrum of Wi-Fi applications. In recent years, 802.11n products have dominated the Wi-Fi market; but this technology is gradually losing its leading position to new members of the Wi-Fi family, such as:
  • 60GHz Wi-Fi – 802.11ad/ay. It is the Wi-Fi industry’s response to new user demands to support gigabit-per-second transmission rates over shorter ranges for applications such as home/office distribution of HDVD and similar bandwidth-intensive applications. The report discusses the specifics of the 60 GHz channels and details the WiGig/802.11ad technology. It also introduces the NG 60 GHz 802.11ay standard.
  • Wi-Fi of white spaces (Wi-Fi white – 802.11af). This technology allows the property of sub-gigahertz transmission to be utilized with advances in Wi-Fi. It uses unused windows of the TV spectrum and will work with cognitive radios.
  • Under – Wi-Fi 6 GHz – 802.11ac (Wi-Fi 5). This development enables gigabits per second and improves the characteristics of IEEE 802.11n technology in a wide range of characteristics.
  • Under – 1 GHz Wi-Fi (excluding white spaces) – 802.11ah.
  • 802.11ax (Wi-Fi 6), which extends Wi-Fi capabilities beyond what was imaginable just a few years ago.
  • Wi-Fi 6E – 802.11ax in the 6 GHz band
  • WAVE 802.11p – Dedicated short-range 5.9 GHz communications – contribution of Wi-Fi to the development of the connected car.
