The WiFi 6E Framework is nearing completion at the Ministry of Information and Telecommunications (MoITT).
According to MoITT sources, the consultation process has been completed, and the draught will be finalised soon. A committee has been formed to determine the WiFi 6E frequency.
According to sources, SPARCO, the Frequency Allocation Board, META, and other local and international organisations were also consulted in the development of this draught.
Various countries are either adopting or considering adopting WiFi 6E in various frequency bands, according to sources. A committee comprised of PTA and Frequency Allocation Board officers has also been formed to allocate frequencies for WiFi 6E.
Existing WiFi technology for end users creates a latency and capacity stumbling block for next-generation technological inclusion of augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR), industrial and domestic robots, Metaverse, and mass adoption of ultra-low latency gaming and animation industry business cases, regardless of whether standard current home routers or outdoor WiFi devices are connected to optic fibre.
Aside from Wi-Fi 6E, the Internet of Things regime has already been opened in Pakistan for wide adoption of Agri-tech, smart homes, safe cities, disaster management, industrial automation, remote sensing, and lighthouse networks in the interest of new enterprises and small and medium enterprises (SMEs).
Wifi 6E refers to devices that operate in the 6GHz band and improve the capacity, efficiency, coverage, and performance of wireless networks.
Wifi 6E devices provide improved network performance, work in densely populated areas, and support more wifi users.
