In the past two years, people have gradually transitioned from the new term WIFI6 to using WIFI6 devices, such as routers, mobile phones and other products. Other WIFI6 products are also more and more now. With the rapid iteration of technology, WIFI6E and WIFI7 are also well known to everyone. Is it worth spending more to replace and update products at this stage? Here we take a look at the advantages of WIFI6E through the throughput test,let’s check the core indicator of WIFI6 E.
Qualcomm has launched the latest WIFI6/6E series of iterative WIFI chips, the QCA206X series, covering the full range of WIFI6/6E product lines. This test module Q2066PM1 is based on the latest QCA2066 WIFI6E chip.
Q2066PM1 basic parameters: PCIE M.2 interface; support 802.11a/b/g/n/ac/ax; support 2*2MU-MIMO; DBS stacking technology supports up to 3Gbps rate; bandwidth supports 2.4GHT20/40, 5G/6G Support HT20/40/80/160; bluetooth supports BT5.2; support LTE.
A close-range test environment:
1、 AP side：Linux+ Q2066PM1
2、 STA side：Win10+ Q2066PM1
3、 Software/Hardware：iperf professional throughput test software/M.2 adapter board
Before the test, the CPU performance of the PC needs to be adjusted to the maximum, otherwise the speed under the high throughput of WIFI cannot be shown.
2) 5G HE160(standard：2042Mbps)
3)DBS(2.4G HE40+5G HE160)
4).DBS(2.4G HE40+6G HE160)
Arrange the above data into the following table:
|Bandwidth||HE40||HE160||2.4G HE40+5G HE160||2.4G HE40+6G HE160|
|Tested Throughput||457Mbit/s||1.75 Gbit/s||2.1Gbit/s||2.1Gbit/s|
From the measured data, the 5GHz frequency band is basically the same as the 6GHz frequency band. The key is that WIFI6E has increased the 6GHz frequency band. The frequency band also begins to feel "grabbing the position", and the 6GHz frequency band added by Wi-Fi 6E can solve this problem for you very well.
There are more performance tests for WIFI6E, we will continue to do so, please pay attention to us, Oflycomm will bring you more information.
