Wi-Fi 7 makes wireless experiences faster with low-latency extended reality (XR), social cloud-based gaming, 8K video streaming, and simultaneous video conferencing and casting with enhanced speeds, latency and network capacity and support for advanced features like 320MHz channels, 4K QAM and advanced multi-link implementations.
In May, Qualcomm released the world’s most scalable commercial Wi-Fi 7 professional network solution Networking Pro 1620 series, the maximum physical layer (PHY) rate of the system is rated 33 Gbps at maximum, the wireless physical layer rate of a single channel is also increased to 11.5 Gbps.

The Wi-Fi 7 RF front-end module integrates the key components required between the Wi-Fi baseband chip and the antenna. Manufacturers can create Wi-Fi devices cost effectively with the help of the new module.
Wi-Fi 7 on mobile devices
In February 2022, Qualcomm released the fastest Wi-Fi 7 commercial solution FastConnect 7800, which is the industry’s most advanced mobile Wi-Fi and Bluetooth wireless connectivity solution, with peak transfer speeds of up to 5.8 Gbps and a latency of less than 2miliseconds. Qualcomm Wi-Fi 7 front end RF module could hit the market in the second half of this year.
According to a report from industry insiders, many brands are not likely to Wi-Fi 7 on new devices. They believe that mass production will not enter the market until 2024. In addition, this network may need time until 2025 or even 2026 before it can replace Wi-Fi 6. This means that we will have to wait three to four years before most smartphones will use this standard.
