Shaping Tomorrow’s Connectivity: Wi-Fi 6E, AI-Driven Management, and the Emergence of Wi-Fi7

Serge Denizyaran, one of Systal’s principal architects, explores the ever-evolving world of wireless connectivity, the emergence of Wi-Fi 6E and the integration of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in network management as we interact and manage alongside existing systems.

Wi-Fi 6E: Elevating Connectivity

Wi-Fi 6E extends the capabilities of Wi-Fi6 into the 6Ghz spectrum, offering new opportunities for enhanced capacity, reliability, and security. This expansion is critical as future use cases will demand far higher resources and connectivity numbers that are hundreds and even thousands of times faster than current requirements.

With Wi-Fi 6E we can say farewell to congestion and latency as the spectrum offers a high number of channels doubling the bandwidth as we speak. Moreover, Wi-Fi 6E prioritises security with the implementation of WPA3. Industries including healthcare, retail, logistics and education can benefit from the reliability and security offered by the new spectrum, unlocking new possibilities for innovation and growth.

Immersive technologies such as VR, AR, XR, AI, Automation, Internet of Things (IoT) and Streaming are destined to become even more mainstream. Wi-Fi 6E is designed for more traffic, concurrent devices and applications while offering low latency at the same time.

AI in Wi-Fi Management: Redefining Network Optimisation

In parallel with the ratification of Wi-Fi 6E, the integration of AI in managing Wi-Fi systems is a paradigm-shifting approach to optimisation and performance monitoring, with never seen before insights. AI driven solutions such as Cisco DNAC and Juniper MIST AI empower us with real-time insights, prediction, and analytics. This enables us to be more proactive in identifying issues and risks. Often, AI offers self-healing processes for minor incidents leaving the managed service providers to deal with real issues that are critical in restoring systems and services.

AI systems analyse vast amounts of networking data, repeating patterns and anomalies to optimise the configuration, bandwidth and bottlenecks as well as actively avoiding interference.  While Systal remains vendor agnostic, the below example from Cisco perfectly summarises this.

Wi-Fi networks are highly dynamic. Machine learning (ML) adapts to ever evolving and changing networks, ensuring seamless connectivity and maximising the utilisation of all services. From automated dynamic channel allocation to load balancing, AI-driven Wi-Fi management streamlines BAU activities and reduces overhead on managed services leading to more agile and resilient Wi-Fi infrastructure.

A Glimpse into the Future: Wi-Fi 7 

This is a transformative period for Wi-Fi 6E and AI, but it does not stop here. Advanced modulation, Extremely High Throughput (EHT), MU-MIMO, and enhanced spectral efficiency are redefining the boundaries of wireless performance.

Wi-Fi7 is faster and more adaptive increasing throughput and providing low-latency. There have been significant improvements made to the physical (PHY) and MAC layers, providing a variety of benefits to the end user including:

  • Increased channel bandwidth to 320Mhz
  • Higher data transmission rate with 4094 QAM modulation
  • Increased throughput and reliability with new multi-link mechanism
  • Multi-AP coordination and improved user experience
  • Increased optimisation and reduced delay
  • Increased scalability
  • Backward compatibility

Wi-Fi 7 will make a big impact in the real-world applications below:

  • Industrial IoT
  • Streaming Services
  • Video Conferencing
  • Real-Time Collaboration
  • AR/VR/XR
  • Telemedicine
  • Cloud/Edge Compute
  • Online Gaming
