Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. is driving the evolution of in-vehicle experiences with the introduction of the world’s first Automotive Grade Wi-Fi 7 Access Point solution, Qualcomm QCA6797AQ. In the era of software-defined vehicle architectures, connectivity is a critical component, and Qualcomm’s platform offers a comprehensive suite of solutions, including Cellular 5G/4G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, C-V2X, and precise positioning technologies.

The new solution addresses the increasing demand for advanced in-vehicle experiences and applications as vehicles transform into personalized, connected spaces with advanced infotainment systems and augmented reality dashboards.

There’s a growing need for greater capacity, higher data rates, and more robust wireless connections, and to solve that, Wi-Fi 7 and its innovations like High Band Simultaneous, Multi-link Multi-Radio, 320 MHz channel bandwidth, 4K Quadrature Amplitude Modulation (QAM), and Adaptive Puncturing, emerge as a transformative force.

Wi-Fi 7 enhances link reliability and lowers latency through features like High Band Simultaneous Multi-Link Radio, virtually eliminating dropped connections due to external interference. By being able to operate on the 5GHz and 6GHz channels simultaneously, it optimizes communication channels, resulting in more reliable connections for uninterrupted data transfers and reduced latency, crucial for latency-sensitive applications like streaming and gaming.

The increased capacity of Wi-Fi 7, enabled by the 6GHz spectrum and 320 MHz channels, coupled with features like 4K QAM and Adaptive Puncturing, allows peak throughputs of up to 5.8 Gbps, enabling faster downloads of High-Definition Maps and supports the growing number of Wi-Fi devices in vehicles.

Qualcomm’s Wi-Fi 7 solutions not only enhance in-vehicle experiences but also transform the automotive industry by enabling connected services, making it easier for things like faster software updates, efficient data offloading at service points, and much more. Let’s keep an eye out for what’s to come in the following months!
