Wi-Fi 6E is revolutionizing Wi-Fi.
LitePoint is leading the way in Wi-Fi 6E Testing.

Working closely with major chipset manufacturers and engaging them from the earliest stages of chipset development, LitePoint’s solution is fully integrated for Wi-Fi 6 and Wi-Fi 6E testing in the 2.4 GHz, 5 GHz and 6 GHz bands.

What is Wi-Fi 6E?

Wi-Fi 6E is the new name given to Wi-Fi 6 – Extended in the 6 GHz band.

Named by the Wi-Fi Alliance to distinguish IEEE 802.11ax devices capable of operating in the 6 GHz unlicensed band.
Regulators around the world, like the FCC in the United States, and the E.U. have announced their intention to open up the
6 GHz band for unlicensed use in 2020.

What are the benefits of WiFi 6E?

More Channels – Removes Congestion

The 6 GHz band adds up to 59 new 20-MHz channels. This will immediately alleviate congestion as Wi-Fi 6E devices will be able to operate in channels with no co-channel (CCI) or adjacent channel interference (ACI) even in dense environments like stadiums or airports.

Wider Channels – Enables Faster Speed

With 14 new 80-MHz and 7 new 160-MHz channels, the 6 GHz band provides enough contiguous spectrum to allow deployments of wide channels, thus enabling the fastest Wi-Fi throughput.

No Legacy Devices – Reduces Latency

6 GHz band is reserved to 802.11ax devices. Allowing only fast and OFDMA capable devices, and therefore decreasing network latency.

How do you test Wi-Fi 6E devices?

In the new Wi-Fi 6E era, it’s critical to ensure that the next generation of Wi-Fi products
meet the highest standards for performance and interoperability.

Extended frequency range
Wi-Fi 6E devices will support the entire frequency range from 5.925 MHz to 7.125 MHz. Most Wi-Fi 6E devices will support dual-band 5 + 6 GHz and often tri-band 2.4 + 5 + 6 GHz. Requiring testing on all the frequency bands.

1024 QAM
Wi-Fi 6 uses 1024-QAM modulation and requires transmitters to perform with significantly better accuracy (lower constellation error) than was required from previous generations. The 802.11ax standard specifies -35 dB EVM for the highest data rate, compared to the -32 dB EVM requirement in 802.11ac.

Wider Channels
The 6 GHz band enables wider channels and Wi-Fi 6E will commonly be deployed with 80-MHz and 160-MHz channels, requiring optimized device’s performance.

Introduced in the 802.11ax standard, OFDMA expands the capacity of OFDM by allocating the channel bandwidth to multiple users simultaneously. Wi-Fi 6E devices will be able to make full use of OFDMA transmission because no OFDM-legacy devices are allowed on the 6 GHz band.
