The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers stated that Wi-Fi 7 would bring higher speeds and many revolutionary improvements to Wi-Fi as we know it. In their paper, the IEEE termed it “the new basis for further Wi-Fi revolution.”
What, then, is the 802.11be? This new amendment is based on the IEEE 802.11 standard, as well as its predecessor 802.11ax, also known as Wi-Fi 6. It will concentrate on WLAN indoor and outdoor operation in the 2.4, 5, and 6 GHz frequency bands, with static and pedestrian speeds.
Wi-Fi standards have continually evolved since their introduction in 1997, resulting in faster speeds and network/ spectrum efficiency. As capabilities were added to the original 802.11 standards, they became known by their amendment.
The first wireless Standard in the family, 802.11-1997, was released in 1997. This Standard defined the Carrier Sense Multiple Access protocols with Collision Avoidance (CSMA/CA) protocols and compatible interconnection of data communication devices in a local area network (LAN).
