Qualcomm announced its Wi-Fi 7 capable Qualcomm Networking Pro Series Gen 3 family of platforms.

The gear is sampling and available to global development partners and is being billed as the world’s highest performance Wi-Fi 7 network infrastructure platform portfolio commercially available.

It uses Qualcomm Networking Pro Series platforms which combine Wi-Fi 7 features with Qualcomm Technologies’ intelligent multi-channel management technologies to improve speeds, lower latency, and enhance network use for users of Wi-Fi 6/6E devices while offering faster throughput and incredibly low latency for the next generation of Wi-Fi 7 client devices.

Qualcomm Wireless Infrastructure and Networking senior vice president Nick Kucharewski said: “Qualcomm Technologies has enabled the era of 10 Gbps Wi-Fi with our first customer deliveries of the Wi-Fi 7 Networking Pro Series.”

“Combining support for the latest Wi-Fi 7 innovations with our unique product architecture, the platform enables solutions ranging from whole-home mesh to connectivity networks for large public venues. With this product line, we anticipate a new class of customer systems for both today’s applications and the emerging Wi-Fi 7 ecosystem.”

Counterpoint Research Research Vice President Neil Shah said the technology delivers record wireless capacity and throughput performance taking the Wi-Fi infrastructure across home and enterprises to the next level.

The tech introduces Wi-Fi 7 innovations such as Simultaneous Multi-Link Operations, 4K QAM, quad-band configurations.

“Qualcomm Technologies is driving the industry into the 10Gbps+ era. This innovative platform thus helps deliver immersive and content-rich wireless experiences even in constrained environments not possible earlier,” he said.

Available in tri-band, and quad-band configurations, the Qualcomm Networking Pro Series enables Wi-Fi connectivity across 2.4GHz, 5GHz, and 6GHz spectrum. Qualcomm Networking Pro Series Wi-Fi 7 platforms achieve unparalleled performance through expert implementation of key features, including:

  • Support for Wi-Fi 7 320MHz channels (delivering a two-times increase in throughput over Wi-Fi 6) provides maximum throughput and ultra-low latency for the most demanding real-time gaming, streaming, video sharing, and XR applications.
  • Multi-Link technology enables customer traffic to dynamically aggregate or alternate bands to avoid wireless interference and deliver deterministic, predictable low latency in heavily congested environments. When paired with leading Wi-Fi 7 client systems, like the Qualcomm® FastConnect™ 7800, Qualcomm Networking Pro Series, Gen 3 platforms can offer support for High Band Simultaneous (HBS) Multi-Link. HBS Multi-Link leverages the high performance 5 and 6GHz bands to deliver the best throughput and latency Multi-Link performance.
  • To maximize 6 GHz operation, including long-range and outdoors, the Qualcomm AFC service is a turnkey solution for hardware and software. The Qualcomm AFC Solution is available for customer device integration today across Qualcomm Networking Pro Series and Qualcomm® Immersive Home platforms. The Qualcomm® AFC Solution is available for customer device integration today and once regulatory approvals are granted, the Qualcomm AFC Solution will be commercially available for use by the public.
