Although overshadowed by the announcement of Queen Elizabeth II’s death, the Intel Corporation and Broadcom yesterday quietly ushered in a huge milestone in tech with a demonstration of the first cross-company Wi-Fi 7 implementation.

The collaboration showcased consistent Wi-Fi speeds of over 5 gigabits per second (5Gbps), using an Intel Core laptop connected to a Broadcom access point.

“We are proud to highlight how next-generation Wi-Fi 7 can make new mobile PC experiences possible. Industry collaboration is essential to ensure we deliver on the promises of this new wireless technology. We would like to thank our colleagues at Broadcom for their great technical cooperation, which helped enable this unprecedented, first-of-its-kind demonstration of ultra-high speed and ultra-low latency Wi-Fi 7,” says Carlos Cordeiro, Intel Fellow and Wireless CTO, Client Computing Group, Intel.

Wi-Fi 7 will be the gold standard for at least 10 years of product releases, offering high speeds, increased stability, and low latency compared to existing solutions. For technology fans wanting more details, Wi-Fi 7 will feature wider 320 MHz channels in the 6GHz spectrum, higher order 4K QAM modulation, and improved channel utilization.

“Today’s milestone sends a clear message: the ecosystem is ready, and Wi-Fi 7 is here to deliver extraordinary capacity and blazing fast speeds to extend gigabit broadband. The reliable, low latency communication provided by Wi-Fi 7 is a key element of Broadcom’s vision for connecting everything as the Internet evolves to its next iteration,” says Vijay Nagarajan, vice president, Wireless Connectivity Division, Broadcom.

For those less concerned about the details and more interested in future applications, the new Wi-Fi standard will almost certainly be put to work in augmented and virtual reality settings, enabling fast and steady streaming of ultra-high-definition 16K video.

As our homes become increasingly connected and more devices rely on wireless signals, gamers and work-from-home employees alike will benefit from massive speed increases, while regular multimedia users will benefit from stable streams and better utilization of high-speed broadband and fiber internet services.

A Dubai-based company has completed the initial trials for the UAE’s first driverless trucks. The groundbreaking achievement by Evocargo, partnering with Dubai South, took place at Dubai South Logistics District, and marked a significant step towards incorporating autonomous technologies into the region’s wider logistics infrastructure.

Announced on Wednesday, July 17th, the trials featured the Evocargo N1 unmanned electric truck navigating a predetermined route within a controlled setting. The test involved interactions with common road obstacles such as cars, trucks, and pedestrians, aiming to evaluate the vehicle’s hardware and software reliability, accident prevention systems, and overall readiness for public road use.

Officials were keen to highlight that this accomplishment aligns with the UAE’s ambitious strategy to position itself as a global leader in innovation and technology adoption. The country aims to have 25% of all transportation in Dubai autonomous by 2030, underscoring its commitment to revolutionizing the logistics sector using advanced technologies.

Mohsen Ahmad, CEO of the Logistics District at Dubai South, emphasized the importance of the collaboration with Evocargo in enhancing the region’s logistics capabilities. He noted that autonomous vehicles are set to increase efficiency, reduce carbon emissions, and establish a sustainable logistics infrastructure that will benefit both Dubai and the wider UAE.
