Wi-Fi 6E is a Wi-Fi standard established by the Wi-Fi Alliance, a standardization organization for Wi-Fi , on January 3 and newly supports a 6 GHz band different from the conventional 2.4 GHz band and 5 GHz band. That is the biggest feature. In April, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) approved the use of the 6 GHz band without a wireless license, so it is expected that products compatible with Wi-Fi 6E will appear in 2020 and gain momentum in popularization.

Meanwhile, Qualcomm announced that it will introduce new mobile communication chips, FastConnect 6900 and 6700, to the market. With the advent of both products with theoretical maximum speeds of 3.6 Gbps and 3 Gbps, respectively, and the latest Bluetooth 5.2 compatible, 'Powerful Wi-Fi and the latest games that are the basis of fast-growing mobile games and augmented reality applications Now you can get Bluetooth audio that solves the gap between video and audio that has been a problem with video and video content, 'said Qualcomm.

Also, with the advent of communication terminals that support the 6 GHz band, it is expected that not only high-speed communication will be possible but also the cross-linking of conventional Wi-Fi communication will be eliminated. IT-related news site VentureBeat said, “Wi-Fi 6E is very important for offices, apartments and other densely populated living spaces. The 6GHz band is, so to speak, close to existing 2.4GHz and 5GHz roads. Next to it is like adding a huge, still free highway, with sufficient lanes and modern infrastructure, the new device will be able to avoid or eliminate congestion on the old road. I will point out. '

At the time of writing the article, it is unknown when the products with 'FastConnect 6900' and '6700' will be released, but it is said that chip samples have already been shipped to OEM manufacturers, so VentureBeat says '2020 It is expected that devices will appear in the second half. '
