On January 9, 2024, BUFFALO Inc, and MediaTek Incorporated and Allion Labs announced that WXR18000BE10P router has received Wi-Fi 7 certification, making it part of the first wave of Wi-Fi CERTIFIED 7™ products. This achievement marks a groundbreaking development in wireless communication and Wi-Fi 7 certification.
Wi-Fi 7, a standard developed by the Wi-Fi Alliance, utilizes the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz frequency bands and supports a maximum 320 MHz channel bandwidth on the 6 GHz band—twice that of Wi-Fi 6. It also provides Multi-Link Operation (MLO) to enhance transmission rates and reduce latency in use cases like AR/VR/XR and cloud computing. With 4K QAM, it allows for high transmission rates. As Wi-Fi standards continue to evolve faster and become more complex, the testing items and times required for certification have significantly increased. Allion provides accredited Wi-Fi testing services compliant with Wi-Fi CERTIFIED 7™ Program standards and assists clients in achieving certification in a short time with state-of-the-art testing equipment and professional expertise.
