2nd Generation Intel Wi-Fi 6 Wireless with Extended Wi-Fi 6E (6GHz Band) Support

 

Greater Network Flexibility

Faster Speed

Reduced Latency

Wi-Fi 6E Dual band 2x2 160MHz

Intel® Wi-Fi 6E AX210 module supports legacy Wi-Fi 4, 5, 6 and Wi-Fi 6E and is designed to support Wi-Fi 6 wave 2 features. By implementing the new Wi-Fi 6E technology supporting the new 6GHz band that includes 1200MHz of new contiguous spectrum (>2x compared to 5GHz) with more Gigabit Wi-Fi options and exclusivity to Wi-Fi 6 products, Intel® Wi-Fi 6E AX210 module maximizes Wi-Fi 6 and Gigabit Wi-Fi benefits enabling greater network flexibility, faster downloads, sharing and backups as well as reduced latency and improved reliability.

When using Wi-Fi 6 technology with 1024QAM and 160MHz channels, Intel® Wi-Fi 6 AX210 module can deliver nearly 3x higher peak data rates3 (up to 2.4Gbps) and up to 4x capacity improvement in dense or congested environments comparing to Wi-Fi 54.

Bluetooth® 5.2
On top of existing features, Bluetooth® 5.2 includes Isochronous Channel feature which lays the foundation for the implementation of next generation of Bluetooth® Audio – Low Energy Audio. Bluetooth® 5.2 Core specification also provides the capability to change the transmit power of the devices (local and peer) in order to improve the link quality while not using extra power consumption.
Microsoft Windows* 10 Full support for latest Microsoft Windows 10* OS.
Form Factors
(M.2 2230 and 1216)

M.2 2230 modules enable system configuration and platform usage flexibility with the use of a standard Key A or Key E socket for attaching the module.

M.2 1216 modules enable platform design optimizations providing savings on motherboard space and BOM.
