With the release of WiFi 6E in Germany in the summer of this year, manufacturers can also offer corresponding WiFi routers and entire mesh WiFi systems in this country. TP-Link relies on the new technology and wants to accelerate radio transmission at home to up to 11,000 Mbit / s.

WiFi 6E uses a new frequency spectrum

With WiFi 6E, the frequency spectrum for WLAN is being expanded by the Federal Network Agency for the first time since 2002. WiFi 6E exclusively uses the 6 gigahertz range that was released a few weeks ago and is based on WiFi 6 (IEEE 802.11ax). Unlike WiFi 6, it also has more bandwidth and ensures less congestion in the 2.4 and 5 GHz ranges. The new standard relies on the frequency range between 5.925 and 7.125 gigahertz, which means that a spectrum of 1,200 megahertz is available. This can be divided into up to 14 channels with 80 megahertz bandwidth each or up to seven channels with 160 megahertz bandwidth each. WiFi 6 can use a maximum of five channels with 80 megahertz or two channels with 160 megahertz.

Deco XE75 marks the beginning of this year

The “Deco XE75 – AX5400 Smart Home Mesh WiFi 6E System” will be the first Mesh WiFi system at TP-Link to use WiFi 6E. It is expected to be launched as a set of 2 in December 2021. The Deco XE75 then offers a total cumulative speed of 5,400 Mbit / s with tri-band and enables the connection of more than 150 devices. The set should cover up to 500 m². If several mesh access points are used, the system should monitor the connection quality of each client and adapt the connections to user behavior. TP-Link has not yet given a price for the new system.

Deco XE200 for 11,000 Mbit / s via WLAN

It should be a whole lot faster next year with the Deco XE200, which with WiFi 6E is supposed to provide a fast tri-band WiFi with 1024 QAM and 160 MHz channel technology, with a cumulative total speed of up to 11,000 Mbit / s is coming. 16 antennas should ensure that two mesh points can cover over 200 end devices within a radius of up to 600 m². In order not to let the fast radio connections end at the mesh system, the Deco XE200 also offers several multi-gigabit LAN connections. So far there has been talk of at least one 10 gigabit connection. The Deco XE200 Mesh WiFi is expected to be available in the second quarter of next year. Further details or even prices are not yet known.
