Wi-Fi Alliance® Delivers More Value From Wi-Fi® in 6 GHz

Wi-Fi Alliance® delivers more value from Wi-Fi® in 6 GHz

Wi-Fi Alliance® is extending Wi-Fi CERTIFIED 6™ into 6 GHz to ensure Wi-Fi users can quickly benefit from additional capacity, wider channels, and less congested spectrum. Certification for Wi-Fi 6E – the brand name for Wi-Fi 6 devices operating in 6 GHz – will be available in early 2021. Wi-Fi Alliance has been working to prepare interoperability certification as soon as Wi-Fi 6E devices enter the market so 6 GHz benefits can reach consumers, device manufacturers, and service providers more quickly.

The Wi-Fi industry has coalesced around certification in an unprecedented way to rapidly deliver the program to market and enable worldwide interoperability of Wi-Fi 6E devices as additional countries make 6 GHz spectrum available.
