Speech Title: Future Indoor Wireless Network: 802.11bn (Wi-Fi 8) and its evolution

Abstract: Wi-Fi, a family of IEEE 802.11 standards, becomes the most popular wireless technology used for data transmission in home as well as in enterprise. The Wi-Fi community is currently planning the next generation Wi-Fi: IEEE 802.11bn (Ultra High Reliability, UHR). The Ultra High Reliability capability is defined for both an isolated Basic Service Set (BSS) and overlapping BSSs as: 1) at least one mode of operation capable of increasing throughput by 25%, compared to the EHT operation; 2) at least one mode of operation capable of reducing latency by 25% for the 95th percentile of the latency distribution compared to the EHT operation; 3) at least one mode of operation capable of reducing MAC Protocol Data Unit (MPDU) loss by 25% compared to the EHT operation. In this talk,we analyze the key features proposed for the new technology, such as machine learning (ML), UHR Relay Architecture, Multi-AP Operation, and Low Latency Transmission. Finally, the future evolution trend of Wi-Fi will be discussed.
