There are industrial network cards on the market at present, mainly 2.4G/5G/6G/6E, we look at the difference:
2.4G, 5G, and 6G nics are all wireless network interface cards. They differ mainly in the supported wireless protocols and working bands.
The 2.4G network card supports the IEEE 802.11b/g/n protocol and works at 2.4GHz, which can achieve a maximum transmission rate of 300Mbps. 5G network cards support the IEEE 802.11a/n/ac protocol, working band of 5GHz, can achieve a maximum transmission rate of 866Mbps. The 6G network card supports the IEEE 802.11ax protocol and works in 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands, which can achieve higher transmission rates and lower delays, up to 10Gbps.
Compared with 2.4G network adapters, 5G network adapters have faster transmission rates and better signal stability, but may not have the same signal penetration and coverage as 2.4G network adapters. Compared with 5G network cards, 6G network cards further improve the transmission rate and stability, and have better signal penetration and coverage, but it is still in a relatively preliminary stage and is not popular in the market at present.
Therefore, select a network adapter based on the specific application scenario and requirements. If you need a faster transmission rate, you can choose 5G or 6G network card; If you need better signal penetration and coverage, you can choose a 2.4G network card.
Specific need to use a lot of chips, but the current market used more chips mainly have the following kinds:
QCN9074, QCN9024, QCN6024 and QCA9880 are all Qualcomm wireless network chips. The differences between them are as follows:
The QCN9074 is Qualcomm's latest generation Wi-Fi 6E wireless network chip that supports the latest Wi-Fi 6E technology and 160 MHz band width with higher speeds and lower latency. It also supports 2.4 GHz, 5 GHz and 6 GHz bands, as well as MU-MIMO and OFDMA technologies.
The QCN9024 is a Wi-Fi 6 wireless networking chip that supports the 160 MHz band width, as well as the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands. It also supports MU-MIMO and OFDMA technologies.
The QCN6024 is a dual-band Wi-Fi 6 wireless networking chip that supports 160 MHz band width, as well as 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands. It also supports MU-MIMO and OFDMA technologies.
The QCA9880 is a dual-band 802.11ac/a/b/g/n wireless networking chip that supports 3×3 MIMO technology and 80 MHz band width, as well as 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands.
Overall, QCN9074 is the latest generation of Qualcomm wireless network chip, the best performance; QCN9024 and QCN6024 are Wi-Fi 6 wireless network chips. The QCN9024 has higher performance. QCA9880 is a dual-band 802.11ac/a/b/g/n wireless networking chip with slightly lower performance than the first three. Chip selection should be based on specific application scenarios and requirements to make decisions.
Yes, the choice depends on the client's specific project requirements and applications.
