Wide-open spaces: Big spectrum gains to boost Wi-Fi capability in 2021

Two recent FCC decisions will dramatically increase the capabilities of new Wi-Fi systems in the coming year, providing badly needed breathing room to the unlicensed wireless world.

The first allocation, announced in April, will throw open the entirety of the 6GHz spectrum range for unlicensed use, and the second, rolled out late last month, adds a small but critical amount of spectrum to the 5GHz band.

Both of these decisions are important to future Wi-Fi deployments because they directly affect the amount of spectrum available for Wi-Fi to operate in. More bandwidth means larger channels, which translates directly into improved throughput for users.
