In order to meet the requirement of the recently unveiled 802.11ax WiFi spectrum, the global semiconductor firm Intel has launched its innovative computing processor that is compatible with the 802.11ax Wi-Fi spectrum.
These days the urge for proficient wireless internet routing has increased a lot, which Intel has taken the initiative of solving the need of the hour by producing state-of-the-art computing equipment. The new processor will be based on the 802.11ax Draft 2.0 and will be Wi-Fi certified so that it can assure interoperability with routers from various manufacturers.
Intel’s 802.11ax processor are based on the Draft 2.0 platform and therefore, it cannot be compatible with the current hardware, but most of the conventional Wi-Fi routers can output both 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz frequencies over the 802.11ac standard. Intel employee Doron Tal said, “The chipsets will also be designed for mainstream 2×2 and 4×4 home routers and gateways for cable, xDSL, fiber and consumer retail devices.”
The upcoming chipset is yet to be certified for manufacturers to distribute in the market, but it is expected that the SoC would be launched officially through manufacturers as early as 2019 that ensures extreme high speeds and massive coverage.
It seems that Intel is not sole company to design chipset for this Wi-FI spectrum. Rival, Qualcomm that manufacture processors for Netgear, Eero, and Google Wi-Fi devices has announced the same last year. As of now, products like smartphones, TVs, and laptops cannot support the faster speeds of 802.11ax.
