Deploy Wi-Fi 6E Now Or Wait For Wi-Fi 7?

Jatin Parekh

While the drumroll on Wi-Fi 7 starts even as the din of Wi-Fi 6E is still not subsided, let us dive into the joys of Wi-Fi refresh planning!!!

The balance of investment protection v/s the risk of early adoption. The timing of infrastructure refresh with the development in handset / client ecosystem. The increasing load on the switching infrastructure and synchronizing both Wi-Fi and switch refresh cycle. The power requirements of tri-band operation v/s the need to go ‘Green’. The ever increasing data hunger and device density v/s keeping up with the desired SLAs and user expectations.
