Wi-Fi 6E

Extending Wi-Fi 6 Capabilities into the 6 GHz Band

Learn how Wi-Fi 6E supports high-bandwidth applications with unprecedented capacities in 6 GHz

Introduced by the Wi-Fi Alliance, Wi-Fi 6E enables the operation of Wi-Fi 6 in the unlicensed 6 GHz band, delivering fast and reliable Wi-Fi networks for soaring device densities and high-bandwidth applications such as video streaming, video conference, and voice call. Wi-Fi 6E simplifies network design and improves Wi-Fi performance with higher throughput, wider channels, elimination of the need to support legacy devices and less congestion.

With the availability of Wi-Fi 6E chipsets, the newly opened additional 1,200 MHz in the 6 GHz band, and with clients and infrastructure becoming available in the next few years, this will enable customers to realize the full potential of multigigabit Wi-Fi.

Realizing the Benefits of Multigigabit Ethernet

With the support of an additional 1.2 GHz of spectrum available in the 6 GHz band, Wi-Fi 6E will drive up the access point uplink requirements and necessitate multigigabit Ethernet (802.3bz) connectivity to the access layer switching infrastructure.

The Juniper EX series, which includes a family of high-performance access switches that support 802.3bz or Multigigabit Ethernet, is well positioned to help enterprises like yours support these soaring bandwidth needs. You can assure great end-to-end user and IoT experiences with the complementary Mist Wired Assurance service that leverages AI and data science for actionable insights and self-driving capabilities.
