How Wi-Fi 6E Will Upgrade Your Network Experience

Wi-Fi 6E is here, and it’s big. Due to the opening of the 6GHz spectrum that Wi-Fi 6 does not deliver this will deliver faster speeds, lower latency and more security across your network.

Wi-Fi 6E Quick Facts



NEW 6GHz band for Wi-Fi, with enhanced performance for high-bandwidth applications and new mesh use cases



Increasing to 3X as many available Wi-Fi channels, supporting low-latency applications and creating improved user experiences across the network



Reducing congestion with unused 6GHz spectrum, improving critical applications, device reliability and security
