MediaTek Showcases First Live Demos of Wi-Fi 7 Technology to Industry Leaders

MediaTek Chip

On Wednesday, MediaTek showcased the world’s first live demo of Wi-Fi 7 technology in the US. It has highlighted the capabilities of the upcoming Wi-Fi 7 Filogic products portfolio. The chipset maker is currently showcasing two Wi-Fi 7 demos tailored for industry collaborators and specific consumers to highlight their super-fast speeds and low latency transmission.

“The rollout of Wi-Fi 7 will mark the first time that Wi-Fi can be a true wireline/Ethernet replacement for super high-bandwidth applications,” said Alan Hsu, corporate vice president and general manager of the Intelligent Connectivity business at MediaTek. “MediaTek’s Wi-Fi 7 technology will be the backbone of home, office and industrial networks and provide seamless connectivity for everything from multi-player AR/VR applications to cloud gaming and 4K calls to 8K streaming and beyond.”

The demos further include MediaTek’s Wi-Fi 7 Filogic technology defined by IEEE 802.11be, which delivers maximum speed coupled with a multi-link operation (MLO). The latter promises to aggregate multiple channels on different frequency bands simultaneously to showcase how network traffic can still flow seamlessly, irrespective of interference or congestion on the bands. MLO technology also promises faster, reliable video streaming, gaming, and any other spectrum, which requires constant and real-time fast data throughput.

“Faster broadband Internet access and more demanding applications such as higher resolution video streaming and VR gaming are driving demand for Wi-Fi 6, Wi-Fi 6E, and soon Wi-Fi 7,” said Mario Morales, group vice president, Semiconductors at IDC. “Wi-Fi 7’s advances in channel width, QAM, and new features such as multi-link operation (MLO) will make Wi-Fi 7 very attractive for devices including flagship smartphones, PCs, consumer devices and vertical industries like retail and industrial; as service providers begin to deploy a wider spectrum of hotspots across these market segments.”

“Today’s consumers want an always-connected, reliable and fast Wi-Fi connection for many applications such as video calls, 4K/8K TV entertainment, real-time gaming, and others,” said Moon Ho Lee, president at Korea Mercury. “MediaTek’s Wi-Fi 7 technology can fulfill the current need for all the applications consumers enjoy today and also open the door for future AR/VR applications which we can’t even imagine today.”

The latest Wi-Fi 7 technology offers new capabilities for existing spectrums, like 2.4GHz, 5GHz, and 6GHz. It claims to be 6x faster than the current Wi-Fi 6 technology with the same set of antennas. That’s because Wi-Fi 7 can utilise 320MHz channels and support 4K quadrature amplitude modulation (QAM) technology. Despite announcements and showcasing live demos, MediaTek also suggests products using this Wi-Fi 7 technology are expected to hit the industry, most likely next year.
