What is Wi-Fi 6E, the 6GHz band that Mexico wants to declare as ‘free spectrum’ to have faster and less saturated internet

We are just assimilating the arrival of 5G internet and now the new WiFi 6E is coming for Mexico. It is a new generation of 6 GHz band , which can be used by any compatible device, since the Federal Telecommunications Institute (IFT) wants to declare it as ‘free spectrum’ . This would help provide a faster and less saturated internet service.

Also known as 6GHz WiFi , it consists of having a gigantic block of frequencies available with a wide variety of channels that will serve in places where there is a high density of signals. Currently, Wi-Fi operates at about 400 MHz, with the release of the 6GHz band, the available spectrum would quadruple .

TIP’s OpenWiFi Targets WiFi Disaggregation

The Facebook-led Telecom Infra Project (TIP) set its sights on WiFi disaggregation this week with the release of OpenWiFi. The initiative expands the purview of TIP beyond mobile and fixed network infrastructure to one of the most broadly adopted and consistently discouraging technologies of all. WiFi is currently used to connect more than 16 billion devices and it carries the majority of wireless internet traffic globally, according to TIP.

OpenWiFi is a fully disaggregated system spanning access point hardware, an open source access point networking operating system, and a software development kit for cloud-native WiFI controller applications that can be used by operators and enterprises.

This Washington-Based AI Startup Offers An Acceleration Platform That Helps Engineering Teams Deploy Machine Learning Models On Any Hardware

OctoML is a Washington-based startup that offers an acceleration platform for deploying machine learning models and algorithms on the hardware. This platform primarily helps the engineering teams deploy the machine learning models seamlessly and with increased accuracy. The platform is built on an open-source Apache TVM compiler framework project.

In the recent Series B funding rounds, OctoML raised $28 million, which takes the company’s total capital to around $47 million. The funds raised will be utilized to up the machinery of the organization, build a customer success team and expand the engineering team further to develop and include new features on the platform.
