The Wi-Fi Alliance has only just begun to validate hardware with the newest 6E wireless-data standard. This is good news for MediaTek, which has had its latest access point and client-side wireless solutions picked up for use in this official body's new test bed. Therefore, the company might now find it easier to pitch these components to OEMs who make routers, broadband equipment or PCs.

The Wi-Fi Alliance has only just begun to certify products of the latest 6E standard. For this, the official independent group needs its own kind of test bench to make sure these devices meet the new spec's requirements, including that of the new 6GHz band. The bed includes new MediaTek access point and client-side wireless solutions that do the same.

These components - the MT7915-AP-AX and MT7915-STA-AX respectively - also work in many consumer- and industry-grade electronics that use Wi-Fi 6E. MediaTek asserts that they support the necessary simultaneous OFDMA operations for multiple clients, as well as 6E-optimized MU-MIMO multiple user support and target wake time (TWT) for battery life.

The MT7915-AP-AX and MT7915-STA-AX are also rated for the latest WPA3 wireless security standard, as well as the EASYMESH R2 features that require certification under Wi-Fi 6's criteria.

Therefore, MediaTek is confident that the solutions would also be ideal for the new home systems (e.g. routers, gateways, mesh nodes, or extenders) or 5G broadband equipment of 2021. Furthermore, they are also available to the new IoT components, smart speakers or even PCs around you this year.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
