    Like with any new technology adoption, it is a step-by-step process. Experts forecast that Wi-Fi 7 access points and routers will be adopted first by the biggest operators, closely followed by the rest in the next year. In the enterprise segments, adoption will start with flagship/high-end devices servicing those most in need of extreme performance, coverage and capacity, before shifting to mainstream devices towards the second half of 2024.
