High-Efficiency Wi-Fi (HEW)

A new 802.11 Study Group was formed in March 2013 with the charter to enhance WiFi performance in 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz in indoor and outdoor scenarios. New features will be introduced to improve the spectral efficiency of WiFi and also the average user-throughputs in dense deployments. These will involve changes to the PHY and MAC layer.

The Task Group is expected to be launched in the first half of 2014.
