Spain approves use of 24 new Wi-Fi 6E channels

You’ve probably heard a lot about Wi-Fi 6, but you may not have a detailed understanding of the Wi-Fi 6E standard, which is a big improvement.

Wi-Fi 6 and previous generations of Wi-Fi use the 2.4GHz and 5GHz radio bands. A “Wi-Fi 6E” device is one that is also capable of operating in the 6GHz band.

As the Wi-Fi Alliance says, Wi-Fi 6E allows “14 additional 80 MHz channels and 7 additional 160 MHz channels”. These channels do not overlap, which will help reduce congestion, especially in areas where many networks operate.

All devices that communicate in the 6GHz spectrum will also be Wi-Fi 6 devices and therefore will speak the same language and will be able to use the new Wi-Fi 6 features to eliminate congestion.

There is an agreement that states that in Europe the 5945-6425 MHz band should be assigned to Wi-Fi connections. Even though it’s not the full 6 GHz band, it allows for considerably more additional spectrum to be used.

However, to harmonize regulations globally and benefit from economies of scale and adapt to future capacity needs, the Wi-Fi industry is working with European regulators to also open up the 6425-7125 MHz band.


how can we read in Broadband, today the new National Table of Frequency Allocation was published in Spain, which brings a new wi-fi band, communication channels between cars and mobile frequencies to create private networks for companies.

As of today, we have 24 new channels in the 6 GHz band that can now be used legally in our country, although obviously you need an access point that supports this technology and devices that support the standard.
