What is Wi - Fi 6 and Wi - Fi 6 E ? It's both a new naming convention for wireless standards, and a big update to the standard that paves the way for powerful new Wi - Fi technologies. Here's why the old 802.11 names are gone, and all the cool things Wi - Fi 6 brings to the table, including better speeds.

WLAN ( wireless local area network ) channels are frequently accessed using IEEE 802.11 protocols, and equipment that does so is sold mostly under the trademark Wi - Fi .

The Federal Network Agency is planning to release new frequencies in early summer. There are not as many channels added as in the USA, but significantly more than today.

In , the second quarter of 2021, the authority will release the new WLAN frequencies , according to the press release Federal Network Agency. This was preceded by an decision by the ECC (Electronic Communications Committee) , the European association of regulatory authorities. The additional spectrum of 480 megahertz broadens the capacity for WLAN applications. The Network Agency also speaks of new possible uses for consumers and industry.

The additional frequency range in Europe is between 5.9 and 6.4 gigahertz, which means that special hardware can both e Provide higher network performance as well as supply more WLAN users with high bandwidth at once. The industry association Wi-Fi Alliance markets the standard as Wi-Fi 6E and thus expands Wi-Fi 6 - according to the old notation 802.11 ax. So far there are no devices with 6E support on the shelves; the industry has only recently been launching WLAN routers with Wi-Fi 6 in the 5 gigahertz spectrum - most recently AVM's Fritzbox 7530, for example.

agreement in Europe lasted longer

while the FCC (Federal Communications Commission) in the USA released the area in April, the regulatory authorities in Europe first had to agree on the technical parameters. The USA has made the new frequency package more than twice as wide, with 1,120 megahertz added instead of 480 megahertz. Accordingly, the WLAN there expands to 7.1 gigahertz and can provide 14 channels with 80 megahertz or seven super-wide 160 megahertz channels. In Europe, on the other hand, there are six conventional or three wide channels.

To survive, she sells the chocolate cakes bought by her father. In this miserable village, where some 15,000 Ethiopian refugees are crowded near the border, she approaches the people by asking them timidly: "Do you want to taste one?".
