Background

IEEE 802.11 has approved the creation of a new task group to work on a major amendment, IEEE 802.11be, for next generation wireless LAN.

The new amendment will define Extreme High Throughput (EHT) physical (PHY) and medium access control (MAC) layers capable of supporting a maximum throughput of at least 30 Gbps.

The amendment will also aim at reducing worst case latency and jitter to improve support for time sensitive applications such virtual reality, augmented reality, gaming, etc.
