Wi-Fi 7: A New Era of Connectivity

Wi-Fi 7 is the first standard released to optimize the usage of three bands.

Wi-Fi 7 is built to increase robustness, minimize latency, increase speed to every device at home, including legacy devices, and maximize overall network capacity.

We’ve built our latest Wi-Fi SoC to realize the full potential of Wi-Fi 7.
