NETGEAR’s WiFi 6E routers offer helps to resolve the congestion issues by adding the previously unavailable 6GHz WiFi spectrum that can be used as an express lane to connect more devices with faster speeds and reliability.
With a rich history of being innovation leaders in networking products, NETGEAR announced its first WiFi 6E Tri-band Routers, the Nighthawk RAXE500, earlier this year at CES 2021 and the Nighthawk RAXE300 Tri-band WiFi 6E Routers at CES 2022. With the arrival of these devices, NETGEAR is poised to be the backbone of the hyper-connected home of today and of the future. This year alone, it is forecasted that more than 316 million Wi-Fi 6E devices will enter the market. While it’s expected that smartphones will be one of the first consumer products to adopt WiFi 6E, we can also expect to see devices like TVs, PCs and VR devices do the same.
Like 5GHz before it, it may take WiFi 6 on 6GHz years before we start to see it everywhere, but that’s not to say that you won’t see much benefit if you’re an early adopter. Whether you’re a tech enthusiast, someone who is always excited about the latest and greatest technology, or someone who values the best performance available, WiFi 6E will be a game changer and perfect for smart homes of today and tomorrow. Even more, as WiFi 6E becomes widely used, 6GHz’s short range and greater number of channels will provide an advantage in challenging environments like apartment complexes, sports stadiums, and corporate campuses.
Wi-Fi generation updates need new and better devices. Several manufacturers have started rolling out Wi-Fi 6E compatible electronic devices. These products have Wi-Fi 6E written on their packaging. The change has started with smartphones, but soon, there will be laptops and tablets, smart TVs and almost any other connected device that supports Wi-Fi 6E routers. Consumers need to purchase a new Wi-Fi 6E router to start enjoying the fast internet experience. It is essential to know that all the new Wi-Fi 6E devices should be compatible with the existing routers at home. However, the real benefits of 6GHz will only be visible when the device works on the Wi-Fi 6E routers.
