The rapid increase in demand for WiFi 6E in the wireless industry has prompted Intel to launch the first wireless network card that supports WiFi 6E, called Intel Wi-Fi 6E AX210. It is said that the wireless card is based on the IEEE 802.11ax standard.
Studies have shown that most families in the United States now rely on WiFi to ensure a stable network connection at home. In addition to homes, WiFi networks are essential practical tools in schools, universities, airports and offices. Even restaurants and hotels offer free Wi-Fi connections to attract users.
It is estimated that by 2023, this technology will contribute US$1 trillion to the US economy.
WiFi 6E is the latest chip in this module, and because its 6GHz frequency band is better than the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz Wi-Fi frequency bands, it is very popular. This upgrade will greatly increase bandwidth and speed.
WiFi adopts M.2 2230 size and supports 802.11ac and 802.11ax (Wi-Fi 6 and Wi-Fi 6E) protocols. The M.2 card will fit a laptop or desktop motherboard with an M.2 WiFi module.
The new wireless card will support high-bandwidth and low-latency applications, such as high-definition video streaming, virtual and augmented reality, and connected IoT devices, which are the main but vital requirements in the enterprise and home sectors.
Intel has not released too many details of the M.2 card, but it is currently only available from China. We expect the product to be released in other markets soon.
