Anatel approves WiFi 6 frequencies, technology with speeds of up to 10 Gbps

The National Telecommunications Agency (Anatel) approved on Wednesday (6) the use of frequencies from 5.9 Ghz to 7.1 Ghz in Brazil, paving the way for the deployment of faster wireless networks, in the WiFi 6E standard, which reaches up to 10 Gbps of velocity.
Technology is critical to meet the increased demand for streaming video, online gambling and faster downloads of large files.

The tracks can be used as “unlicensed”, that is, anyone can use them without the need for authorization from Anatel. With the novelty, instead of 11 channels in the 2.4 GHz networks, with a limit of 72 MHZ, the transmission starts to happen with 36 sets in 5 GHz, with a band that varies between 10 MHz and 160 MHz.

From now on, Anatel starts to evaluate the technical specifications of WiFi 6E, to standardize the devices. According to the WiFi Alliance, the first products to feature the novelty should reach the market only at the beginning of next year.
