What is Wi-Fi 7?

Whenever we get a new version of Wi-Fi, it usually means an increase in the maximum speed it can give. Even if we consider it true, most people can’t even reach half of that maximum speed! With Wi-Fi 7, you still get that speed improvement (in fact, it’s 20% faster than previous generations). The main thing with Wi-Fi 7 is its significantly reduced latency rates and greater network capacity.

The benefits mentioned above are thanks to key technologies found in Wi-Fi 7 such as Multi-Link Operation, 4096-QAM, and Multiple Resource Units. These features make Wi-Fi 7 bring a more efficient network. Users of devices connected to Wi-Fi 7 networks will get to enjoy more reliable connections across larger areas. They also get better network protection with stronger encryption standards and enhanced defenses against emerging threats.

With Wi-Fi 7, we’re not only talking about faster downloads and smoother streaming but also unlocking a whole new world of tech advancements for every Filipino.
TP-Link’s Wi-Fi 7 is designed specifically for high-end users who demand the highest network performance. Whether it’s enhancing the online learning experience, supporting the growth of local businesses, or accelerating digital transformation, our products are key to realizing your digital dreams, offering unprecedented speed and efficiency.”
