Paraphrasing David on the topic of Wi-Fi 7: "This next generation of Wi-Fi comes with some new bells and whistles. In the enterprise, using multi-link operation (MLO) for directing traffic among various frequency bands to improve latency, along with the utilization of an aggregate MLO variant for mesh networks, both show significant potential. Nonetheless, I contend that the most valuable asset for Wi-Fi 7 is going to be our expanded use of the 6 GHz spectrum for new innovation and mission-critical applications.”
