Qualcomm Introduces Automated Frequency Coordination Solution for Enhanced Wi-Fi Performance in 6 GHz Spectrum

Reading time ( words)

Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. announced its Qualcomm AFC Solution, immediately available for integration into customer products, built to deliver enhanced 6 GHz operation in a turnkey, cost-effective, and scalable implementation with access point (AP) agent and cloud systems with end-to-end validation and certification. The Qualcomm AFC Solution utilizes standards-defined interfaces to support interoperability across all network deployments leveraging 6 GHz operation, including Wi-Fi 6E, Wi-Fi 7, and beyond.

“Qualcomm Technologies stands ready to deploy scalable, turnkey cloud-to-silicon services to boost 6 GHz performance,” said Nick Kucharewski, senior vice president and general manager, Wireless Infrastructure and Networking, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. “Once the FCC approves this solution, customers will be able to experience the benefits of longer range and higher performance whole-home mesh connectivity, plus higher speed and lower latency for 6 GHz-capable devices.

The Qualcomm AFC Solution offers location-based power optimizations for 6 GHz transmissions, enabling higher Wi-Fi power levels to be used in access points and client devices, and delivering higher performance and longer range while protecting existing incumbent users of the band.

The Qualcomm AFC Solution will be available across Wi-Fi 6E and Wi-Fi 7based networks, with supported products ready to provide Standard Power capabilities upon FCC approval. It will drive significant performance enhancements indoors, where an increase in peak transmit power of 63 times can be realized, as well as outdoors operations that are enabled with AFC. Our AFC Solution is designed to meet global regulatory requirements, ensure a simple customer deployment model scalable across multiple regions, and is robust and secure to support millions of devices.

The Qualcomm AFC Solution is now available for device integration across Qualcomm Networking Pro Series and Qualcomm Immersive Home Platforms.
