Intel unveils 40% faster Wi-Fi chip developed in Israel

Intel’s home Wi Fi chipsets are architected for our connected digital lifestyles

Certain chips from Intel to be released this year will support the new standard. What's holding it back for this year are delayed product certification.

Even when certification for 802.11ax arrives in 2019, it will still be a little while before we will be able to take advantage of it.

The newest - and most exciting - IEEE standard for Wi-Fi, 802.11ax, is coming soon. It handles multiple devices - like all your smart-home gadgets - much better than existing routers, and also has a headline-grabbing top speed of 6,000Mbps, about 300 times faster than the average home internet speed. Routers and gateways based on Intel's new chipsets will be compatible with today's cable, DSL, and fiber optic networks, delivering faster wireless performance to home consumers and their devices. The certification process makes sure that all Wi-Fi products work together as they're supposed to, and the Alliance is correct that it usually marks the beginning of a new era of Wi-Fi.

Mobile processor manufacturer Qualcomm was even earlier than Intel, as they have produced 802.11ax compliant chips as early as February of this year.

Achieving optimal user experience with 802.11ax
Intel unveils 40% faster Wi-Fi chip developed in Israel

The Wi-Fi Alliance, an industry group that sets the standards for new versions of Wi-Fi, told The Verge in an email that it doesn't expect to see mass adoption of 802.11ax until 2019.

The new Intel chipsets will be based on Draft 2.0 of the 802.11ax standard and it is important for all infrastructure devices to adhere to Draft 2.0 and not Draft 1.0, to ensure interoperability.

To help OEMs smoothly transition to the new standard, designs based on Intel's 802.11ac infrastructure chipset - the Intel Home Wi-Fi Chipset WAV500 Series - can upgrade to 802.11ax with no change to the host SoC. Most notably, the chipsets allow up to 256 devices to share bandwidth simultaneously, delivering consistent connectivity even as more devices connect to the gateway or router. However, Intel is also making its own optimizations to the standard for better performance amongst its own 802.11ax devices. It will also provide enhanced throughput rates, and low latency in gaming, video, and voice calls. Wi-Fi traffic is offloaded from the SoC to the chipset, thereby, freeing up the SoC for software and security functions.
