Don’t Wait for Wi-Fi 7 | Tomversations: Episode 26

Have you started deploying Wi-Fi 6 yet? Are you looking at Wi-Fi 6E now that hardware is shipping? Or are you going to wait for the next revision and deploy Wi-Fi 7 as the latest and greatest technology? Here’s my perspective on why you shouldn’t wait.

There are a ton of factors that go into a wireless deployment and it’s always a tradeoff between speed, cost, and availability. You’re going to have a make some compromises if you want something that works. You can deploy Wi-Fi 6 today and have a perfectly acceptable wireless network. But if you choose to wait for the next revision you may be waiting for quite a while.
