Wireless Broadband Alliance (WBA) member, Turk Telekom, has announced the successful completion of Wi-Fi 6E trials designed to demonstrate how the technology can be used to enhance speed and capacity in a variety of different end-user scenarios. Wi-Fi is vital to the success of Turk Telekom, which has one of the largest Wi-Fi footprints in the region, spanning residential, enterprise and public space applications.
The trial, which was carried out in partnership with Broadcom and Intel under the auspices of the WBA trials programme, clearly demonstrated the Wi-Fi 6E real-world performance benefits for consumers, enterprises and municipalities. Such benefits include high bandwidth and low latency wireless applications in on-premises environments. The greenfield 6 GHz spectrum coupled with Wi-Fi 6 (Wi-Fi 6E) is a natural match to high-speed fibre to the premises and will accelerate the deployment of 5G services. Regardless of the broadband service type to the premises, Wi-Fi 6E offers the opportunity to connect all endpoints at high speeds for a richer ecosystem and more opportunities for monetisation of the 5G services.
The trial made clear that by opening the full 6 GHz spectrum, it is possible to future-proof Turkey’s wireless broadband capabilities in the short term with Wi-Fi 6E and also lay the groundwork for Wi-Fi 7 so that its citizens can utilise the digitally immersive services that will drive advancements in education, manufacturing, entertainment and more.Click below to share this article
