White Paper Overview 

The IEEE 802.11 MAC and PHY layers are continuously being improved to offer more efficiency and support new use cases. The next generation of Wi-Fi IEEE 802.11be (Wi-Fi 7), also known as Extremely High Throughput (EHT), focuses further on multiple enhancements that offer lower latency and higher reliability.

In this white paper, Rohde & Schwarz experts focus on explaining the technologies that enable the Wi-Fi 7, and the test and measurement challenges as well as relevant, leading-edge solutions.

This white paper focuses on the IEEE802.11be physical layer and contains five main parts:

•IEEE 802.11be amendment development core documents
•IEEE 802.11be goals and feature summary
•Features to achieve extremely high throughput
•EHT physical layer descriptions
•Transmitter and receiver test requirements
