Title: Wi-Fi 7: Objectives, Standardization, and Research

Speaker: Boris Bellalta, Universitat Pompeu Fabra

Abstract: As hordes of data-hungry devices challenge its current capabilities, Wi-Fi strikes again with 802.11be, alias Wi-Fi 7. This brand-new amendment promises a (r)evolution of unlicensed wireless connectivity as we know it, unlocking access to gigabit, reliable and low-latency communications, and reinventing manufacturing and social interaction through digital augmentation. More than that, time-sensitive networking protocols are being put forth with the overarching goal of making wireless the new wired. With its standardization process being consolidated, this talk will provide an updated digest of 802.11be essential features, along presenting some of our latest research results.
