- The Federal Communications Commission announced a potentially significant step for Wi-Fi today, with plans for an April 23 vote on a proposal to open the 6GHz band for unlicensed Wi-Fi use.
- Doing so would free up more than 1,200MHz of additional bandwidth for next-gen Wi-Fi 6E devices with antennas and chipsets capable of tapping into the extra spectrum.
- To accommodate that increase in Wi-Fi demand, the FCC is aiming to increase the supply of Wi-Fi spectrum with our boldest initiative yet: making the entire 6GHz band available for unlicensed use.
- This would be a huge benefit to consumers and innovators across the nation. It would be another step toward increasing the capacity of our country's networks.

- Apple in January was ordered to pay the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) $838 million for infringing on Caltech patents related to WiFi transmissions.
- Apple tried to get the patent invalidated on "obviousness" grounds, suggesting the patent was an invention that came from standard product design and development and is obvious to experts.
- The lawsuit dates back to 2016, when Caltech sued Apple and Broadcom for infringing on a series of patents granted between 2006 and 2012.
- The patents related to IRA/LDPC codes that use simpler encoding and decoding circuity for improved data transmission rates and performance, with the technologies used in the 802.11n and 802.11ac Wi-Fi standards supported by many Apple products.

- Broadcom is launching a new Wi-Fi combo processor that is designed to deliver more than 2 Gbps speeds with better battery life by extending Wi-Fi 6 to support the 6 GHz spectrum band.
- The processor, the BCM4389, is the first Wi-Fi 6E processor that will utilize the soon-to-be-operational 6 GHz band with wider channel bandwidth. BCM4389 is designed for flagship smartphones and future augmented and virtual reality devices.
- According to Broadcom, the upshot of the BCM4389 is that it will cut latency, avoid congestion with legacy devices and improve performance. Another perk is that the BCM4389 will use multi-radio technology with Bluetooth to improve audio performance and range.
