To understand WiFi 6E, you first need to know the definition and background of WiFi 6, or the sixth generation of WiFi. WiFi 6 first emerged in 2019 and has since been cleared by the Federal Communications Commission to begin opening up an entirely new band of spectrum for use: WiFi 6. WiFi 6E expands into the 6 GHz spectrum and offers previously unimaginable amounts of data to be transferred at lightning-fast speeds. This new spectrum offers a faster, more efficient version of WiFi, allowing wireless access points the opportunity to better manage heavily crowded networks. This new spectrum is best suited for close-range connections, enabling massive amounts of data to be transmitted simultaneously without interference or lags.
Many times, in areas densely populated with devices, such as a large apartment complex, transportation hubs, or sports stadium, it is very hard to send and receive communications as the area’s bandwidth is being overrun. However, devices that have access to WiFi 6 networks will be able to easily make connections without delay while enjoying enhanced efficiency and speed.
WiFi 6 also mitigates congestion.in locations where hundreds of WiFi devices are operating simultaneously. This technology is ideal for streaming 8K movies and uploading and downloading large files. Devices that are able to harness the power of WiFi 6 are known as WiFi 6E. These next-generation devices and equipment are specifically designed to tap into this new band of spectrum. This gives these WiFi 6 compatible devices an exclusive first use of the 1,200 MHz of additional bandwidth that it provides. Westward Sales is proud to offer the next generation of wireless devices compatible with WiFi 6, offering users unprecedented, uninterrupted connectivity.

WiFi 6E antennas offer increased capacity, data rates, lower latency, and power efficiency over previous industry standards. These antennas operate up to 7.125 GHz. This enables a router or access point to communicate over one, two, or all three bands, (i.e., 2.4, 5.0, and 6 GHz). In demanding mobile applications, it’s imperative that your equipment is ruggedized. Many of our WiFi 6E antennas are encased in protective radome casings, keeping them operational in the face of shock and vibration, extreme hot or cold, inclemate weather, or foreign objects.
