Qorvo supports Wi-Fi Alliance expansion into 6GHz spectrum with Wi-Fi 6E
Qorvo Inc of Greensboro, NC, USA (which provides core technologies and RF solutions for mobile, infrastructure and defense applications) has announced its support for Wi-Fi Alliance efforts to advance the discussion and implementation of Wi-Fi 6E – the extension of Wi-Fi 6 into the 6GHz spectrum and the next step in meeting the growing global demand for high-performance indoor connectivity. Qorvo says it will continue to develop technologies that help to realize all the benefits of this spectrum expansion.
As a member of the Wi-Fi Alliance, Qorvo says that it has long been committed to solving Wi-Fi RF challenges with unique power, filter and front-end products that feature the highest levels of integration, power and efficiency in a small form factor. The firm also designs products that ensure coexistence among multiple industry protocols to promote broader and faster adoption of Wi-Fi systems. These solutions optimize wireless network performance, range and capacity in home environments as well as offices, stadiums and convention centers.
“Qorvo fully stands behind the Alliance and all it is doing to help simplify and enable the 6GHz spectrum,” says Cees Links, general manager of Qorvo’s Wireless Connectivity business and a founding member of the Wi-Fi Alliance. “We will help pioneer this next generation of Wi-Fi with products that support the entire wireless connectivity ecosystem – enabling faster bandwidth, additional high-capacity channels and new use cases for dedicated, high-capacity backhaul.”
Qorvo’s Wireless Connectivity (WCON) business develops wireless semiconductor system solutions for connected devices that support Wi-Fi, Zigbee, Thread and Bluetooth Low Energy. WCON offers integrated Wi-Fi front ends and a portfolio of RF chips and software for the Internet of Things.
