Wi-Fi is “the” unlicensed spectrum technology…and it needs access to more unlicensed spectrum!
Wi-Fi urgently needs access to additional unlicensed spectrum (e.g. 1200 MHz in the 6 GHz band) to meet users’ needs and avoid multi-technology coexistence issues.
Wi-Fi 7 needs refinement to enable network infrastructure-based management tools for enterprise & industrial use
Wi-Fi, based on IEEE 802.11, has developed over the last 20+ years to address the needs of an increasingly diverse set of use cases.
A Cisco Wi-Fi Guy’s View of IEEE 802 at 40
Little did I know that when I was studying for my New South Wales Higher School Certificate in 1980 that a small group of enlightened engineers were founding an organization called IEEE 802. Over the last 40 years it is not hard to reasonably assert that IEEE 802 has proven to be one of the most significant Standards Development Organizations (SDOs) in history.
