Broadcom has the world’s first Wi-Fi 7 ecosystem solutions ready

Broadcom has announced the availability of sample chipsets forming complete solutions for the Wi-Fi 7 ecosystem. They cover Wi-Fi routers, home gateways, enterprise access points and client devices, more than double the speed of Wi-Fi 6 and 6E solutions on the market today. The new element base also boasts reliable, low-latency connectivity and extended range.

Doubling the bandwidth in Wi-Fi 7 is provided by the introduction of 320 MHz wide channels. Combined with Automatic Frequency Coordination (AFC) technology, this enables Wi-Fi 7 to provide optimal spectrum allocation for high-powered access points and extend the communication range of equipment operating in the 6 GHz band, both indoors and outdoors.

Broadcom’s product portfolio for the Wi-Fi 7 ecosystem includes the BCM67263, BCM6726, BCM43740, BCM43720 and BCM4398 chips. All support 4096-CAM modulation and multi-channel operation (MLO), and are fully compliant with IEEE and WFA Wi-Fi 7 specifications.

The BCM67263 chip is optimized for home Wi-Fi access points. It supports 320 MHz wide channels and four Wi-Fi 7 streams, having a single RF module operating in the 6 GHz band. Physical speeds reach up to 11.5 Gbps. The BCM6726 chip is also optimized for home access points. It features a radio module that supports the 2.4, 5 and 6 GHz bands. The channel width can be up to 160 MHz and the physical speed reaches 5.75 Gbit/s, and

The BCM43740 and BCM43720 chipsets are optimized for enterprise Wi-Fi access points. The former supports four Wi-Fi 7 streams, the latter two, the former 320 MHz wide channels and the latter 160 MHz wide channels. Physical speeds reach 11.5 Gbps and 2.88 Gbps, respectively. The 2.4 GHz, 5 GHz or 6 GHz bands are available in both cases.

Finally, the BCM4398 is a combined Wi-Fi 7 and Bluetooth 5 controller optimized for smartphones. It supports two streams of Wi-Fi 7, 320 MHz wide channels. Physical speeds of up to 6.05 Gbps are achieved. Not only is it claimed to meet IEEE and WFA Wi-Fi 7 standards, but also the Bluetooth Denver standard.
