The Wi-Fi Alliance is now officially certifying products that support Wi-Fi 7, the next generation of wireless internet. With certification, we should soon start to see new products such as smartphones, laptops, and routers using the Wi-Fi 7 standard, which will likely mean huge speed and efficiency gains.

Although Wi-Fi 7 Routers have already been released by companies like Netgear, TP-Link, and Eero, the products still need to be officially certified. That doesn’t mean they won’t work with Wi-Fi 7, but it does mean that some companies can’t officially guarantee compatibility for their devices just yet.

Wi-Fi 7 devices offer up to double the bandwidth of those using earlier standards, meaning the potential for wireless download speeds of two gigabits per second and theoretical local network speeds of up to 46 gigabits per second (though real-world peaks of 5-6 Gbps are more probable).

The technology also features Multi-Link Operation (MLO), which bonds connections spread across two or three of the 2.4 GHz, 5GHz, and 6GHz bands, giving extra speed and stability and allowing users to move more seamlessly between wireless access points.

In addition, Wi-Fi 7 may also unlock the use of additional bands between the 1Ghz and 7GHz+ range, but that will depend on local legislation and availability.

Wi-Fi 7 devices are backward-compatible with previous versions, though those older devices won’t benefit from new Wi-Fi 7 features or see a speed increase. However, if you’re a tech enthusiast or early adopter, a new Wi-Fi 7 router would be a fantastic upgrade to future-proof your home internet setup.

Hamad International Airport (DOH) in Doha, Qatar, has once again won the “World’s Best Airport” title at the Skytrax World Airport Awards. The award ceremony, held at the Passenger Terminal Expo 2024 in Frankfurt, Germany, also saw Hamad clinch the accolade of “World’s Best Airport Shopping” for the 2nd time in a row and “Best Airport in the Middle East” for an impressive 10th consecutive year.

Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive Officer, Eng.

Hamad International Airport saw a massive 31% surge in passenger traffic during 2023, with the transport hub now serving over 45 million passengers annually. The airport is now home to prestigious airlines, including Vistara, Iberia, Xiamen Airlines, Garuda Indonesia, and Japan Airlines, serving 250+ destinations for passenger and cargo flights.

The uptick in traffic is no doubt due to the completion of the first phase of an extensive expansion project. Hamad’s management intends to radically update the airport’s facilities over the coming years in a bid to create the “airport of the future”. The expansion features a unique and calming environment of lush greenery and several contemporary dining and shopping concepts among the already well-equipped leisure facilities.
