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 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.

Bluetooth® 5.3
On top of existing features, Bluetooth® 5.3 includes Isochronous Channel feature which lays the foundation for the implementation of next generation of Bluetooth® Audio – Low Energy Audio. Bluetooth® 5.3 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.
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 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''.
