HaLow - WiFi 7
« on: December 05, 2021, 05:40:02 PM »
The WiFi Alliance last November developed an exciting new standard called HaLow specifically for the IoT:cool:

Wi-Fi HaLow enables low power connectivity necessary for applications including sensors, personal wearable devices, and utility meters that require multi-year battery operation. Wi-Fi HaLow supports applications such as streaming compressed video from security cameras, even in challenging environments where the ability to penetrate walls or other barriers to provide a robust connection is an important consideration. In agriculture or logistics monitoring applications where long range is a priority, Wi-Fi HaLow delivers data at ranges exceeding one kilometer. Wi-Fi HaLow adopts existing Wi-Fi protocols to deliver many of the benefits that consumers have come to expect from Wi-Fi, including multi-vendor interoperability, strong WPA3™ security, easy setup, and seamless integration into IP networks.

Despite the recently launched Wi-Fi 6 and Wi-Fi 6E (802.11ax) standards, there are rumors that the Alliance is working on Wi-Fi 7 (IEEE 802.11be). It's said to have extremely high throughput and be out on the market in a couple of years.

Its an interesting development, even though I seriously don't want IOT. With a refrigerator, I want a dumb one, my recent Fisher and Paikal does not spy on me at all.

Super highly efficient WIFI could be very useful in many contexts. Currently I avoid WIFI like the plague as I see it as a security leak. I have a mobile phone that I only use for 2 stage verification as it was inflicted on you by so many web sites. Absolutely no financial information and extremely limited personal data.
