What you need to know

  • TP-Link has unveiled its upcoming Wi-Fi 7 routers, including Archer routers, a gaming router, Deco mesh routers, and PoE Omada access points.
  • The flagship Archer BE900 router has an incredible BE24000 quad-band connection with two 5GHz bands.
  • The Deco BE95 has dual 6GHz bands with a top speed of BE33000 for optimal mesh performance.
  • Products will be available to order in December 2022, with availability estimated for Q1 2023.

While Wi-Fi 6E introduced us to 6GHz Wi-Fi, Wi-Fi 7 (802.11be) is set to take it to the next level, and TP-Link has announced a range of routers (opens in new tab) that will take advantage of it. Wi-Fi 7 will have several benefits over Wi-Fi 6 and Wi-Fi 6E thanks in no small part to better utilization of 6GHz bands.

Wi-Fi 7 will have access to 320MHz channels with 4096QAM compared to 160MHZ and 1024QAM available on Wi-Fi 6 and 6E. Other speed improvements will be available thanks to 16×16 MU-MIMO and backhaul aggregation on the Deco series. Compared to the best Wi-Fi 6E routers, Wi-Fi 7 will have a significant speed advantage.
