The Intel® Wi-Fi 6E AX211 (Gig+), a CRF1 (Companion RF), is designed to support Wi-Fi 6E technology and related Wi-Fi Alliance certification. The product supports dual-stream Wi-Fi in the 2.4GHz, 5GHz and 6GHz bands as well as Bluetooth® 5.3. It also supports Wi-Fi 6 R2 features, including UL MU-MIMO2. These new features maximize the benefits of Wi-Fi 6, including Gigabit speed, ultra-low latencies, and enhanced reliability benefits across new radio frequencies exclusive to Wi Fi 6E devices, and deliver a significant improvement in user experience in dense deployments. Combined with Intel® Core™ processors and exceptional Intel wireless innovations, the Intel® Wi Fi 6E AX211 module can dramatically improve your connected experience at home, work, or on the go.
Greater Network Flexibility
Wi-Fi 6E Tri Band 2x2 160MHz
Intel® Wi-Fi 6E AX211 module supports legacy Wi-Fi 4, 5, 6, and Wi-Fi 6E, and is designed to support Wi-Fi 6 R2 features. By implementing Wi-Fi 6E technology supporting the 6GHz band that includes 1200MHz of contiguous spectrum (>2x compared to 5GHz) with more Gigabit Wi-Fi options and exclusivity to Wi-Fi 6 products, Intel® Wi-Fi 6E AX211 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, the Intel® Wi-Fi 6 AX211 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.
||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) to improve link quality while optimizing power consumption.|
|Microsoft* Windows*||Full support for latest Microsoft* Windows 10*, Windows 11* OS.|
(M.2 2230 and 1216)
M.2 2230 modules enable system configuration and platform usage flexibility with the use of a standard Key E socket for attaching the module.
M.2 1216 modules enable platform design optimization with the use of an Intel CNVio interface between the CNVi5 and Intel® Wi-Fi 6 AX211 module6, providing savings on motherboard space, BOM and PCIe* port, plus allowing for flexible motherboard routing up to 10''.
