What is WiFi 6E

By admin Date of issue: Jul 15,2022

What's WiFi 6E?


Simply put, WiFi 6E means WiFi 6 extended to the 6 GHz band. WiFi 6E works with the same standard as WiFi 6 but with an extended spectrum. 6 GHz is the new frequency band ranging from 5.925 GHz to 7.125 GHz, allowing up to 1,200 MHz of additional spectrum. Unlike the existing bands on which channels are currently crammed into the limited spectrum, 6 GHz band exists without overlap or interference. Access to the 6 GHz frequency brings more bandwidth, faster speeds, and lower latency, opening up resources for future innovations like in AR/VR, 8K streaming and more.


With an additional 1200 MHz of spectrum available for use in the 6 GHz band for Wi-Fi applications, Wi-Fi 6E devices will operate in 14 additional 80 MHz channels and 7 additional 160 MHz channels. This broader spectrum simplifies network design and delivers ultimate Wi-Fi performance with higher throughput and wider channels, while eliminating the need to support legacy devices, resulting in less network congestion.


Making use of this extended spectrum capacity in 6 GHz brings the promising outlook of continued innovation across Wi-Fi user experience and connected devices. The Wi-Fi 6E standard further improves the 802.11ax network user experience with faster and more reliable Wi-Fi networks that are designed for soaring device densities and high-bandwidth applications such as video streaming, videoconferencing, and voice calls.


Not all routerboard can support 6E card, it need develop the software, letting the routerboard support the 6E card. Our routerboard DR6018 can support our network card DR9074-6E, as our engineer has developed the software.
