Is 2023 the Year of Wi-Fi 6E?

Wi-Fi 6E has started to show signs of a usage uptick, and predictions are that it will reach the optimum point by next year. If you have been following the industry trends, you’d know that a lot of the companies operating in this space have their eyes set on 2023 as the sweet spot for launching Wi-Fi 6E capable access points and devices.

This is not just on a hunch. Conditions are ripe for real. If the trends are to be believed, Wi-Fi 6E is the next frontier and as of today, 2023 seems likely to be the year for wide-scale adoption. That is exactly why companies are eager to bring more Wi-Fi 6E supporting products into the market by 2023 so that when the transition starts, there’re enough devices available to support it.
