Developing future-proof connectivity solutions
Skyworks Solutions has announced that it is supporting next generation wireless technologies set forth by WiFi Alliance and developing advanced connectivity solutions designed to meet future requirements. Skyworks offers a family of solutions that address all existing WiFi standards and is working in WiFi Alliance to develop its WiFi 6E products that operate in the 5.925 to 7.125GHz frequency range.
As a result of increasing demand for high data applications such as streaming media/TV/audio, social media and smart home devices, there has been an initiative to open up additional frequency bands to complement the existing 2.4 and 5GHz bands. This new spectrum is expected to be made available by regulators around the world and it represents an opportunity to deliver the benefits of WiFi 6 coupled with increased bandwidth available in the new 6GHz band.
“The 6GHz band addresses the growing need for WiFi spectrum capacity to ensure users continue to experience reliable and seamless connectivity,” said Kevin Robinson, SVP of Marketing, WiFi Alliance. “We are glad to see WiFi Alliance members working closely in WiFi Alliance to ensure that new products meet high standards for interoperability and security.”
“Skyworks is leveraging our expertise to produce connectivity solutions that address the insatiable demand for more data and the ever-evolving needs of the market,” added Dave Stasey, Vice President and General Manager of diversified analogue solutions for Skyworks. “We look forward to continuing our tradition of innovation and providing the highest performance solutions for our OEM customers which deliver maximum WiFi range and speeds.”
