MediaTek ATSSS: A convergence of 5G and Wi-Fi will create ubiquitous connectivity

How can we bridge the gap and create a more synergistic relationship between 5G and Wi-Fi 7?

In his article, Bridging the Gap: How 5G and Wi-Fi 7 Are Paving the Way for Universal Connectivity, Nicolas Babin discusses how these technologies complement each other, and how using technologies like MediaTek ATSSS, they can ultimately provide seamless connectivity between local hotspots to national networks.

"In an era where connectivity is as essential as electricity, two technologies stand out as game-changers: 5G and Wi-Fi 7. Together, they are redefining what it means to be "connected" offering unprecedented speeds, reliability, and coverage. This evolution is not just about faster internet, but also about smarter, more efficient ways to manage and utilize these networks. A key development in this area is Access Traffic Steering, Switching, and Splitting (ATSSS).

ATSSS is a groundbreaking feature in the 3GPP standards, integral to the evolution towards 5G and beyond. It enhances the convergence of 5G and Wi-Fi networks, particularly Wi-Fi 7, allowing mobile devices to simultaneously use both networks for data transmission."

James Chen, MediaTek’s Vice President of Wireless solutions, provided further comments on MediaTek's latest connectivity innovation,

"Our vision at MediaTek is to make the world more connected. The uptake of 5G CPE as a reliable and high-speed broadband solution is a step towards not only bridging the digital divide but also offering a competing solution to traditional wireline technologies such as DSL, Cable and even Fiber broadband internet solutions. Ultimately, this is a step towards ensuring that no community, urban or rural, is left behind in the broadband connectivity race."
