New 6 GHz Spectrum for Wi-Fi

New 6 GHz Spectrum for Wi-Fi

October 15, 20191 min read

This past October, the FCC began to explore opening up 1,200 megahertz of spectrum in the 6 GHz band for different types of unlicensed uses. This band is currently populated by microwave services that are used to support utilities, public safety, and wireless backhaul. Studies show that sharing this band with unlicensed operations is feasible—and can put massive amounts of new spectrum into the hands of consumers.

Unlicensed innovator Claus Hetting of WI-FI NOW said, “This is without a doubt the single biggest opportunity in Wi-Fi—and probably in wireless—in a generation.” He added, “This 6 GHz spectrum boost will launch the Wi-Fi industry into a new growth trajectory.”

Circuit Seed is aiming to have the best of both worlds: protect today’s incumbent users of the band while turbocharging the Wi-Fi networks and applications of the future.

While this is good news for Wi-Fi, it will not work without adequate filtering to split this super wide frequency allocation into sub-bands. Ceramic filters will be able to do that, but it will be static. If an enterprise or a home wants smart frequency allocation with some ‘AI’ behind it, dynamic low loss filtering is a must.

Circuit Seed’s 100% digital process for analog signal processing is an ideal solution for high performance filtering with low noise and low signal loss.
