Wi-Fi 6

Next-generation Wi-Fi

What is Wi-Fi 6?

 

Wi-Fi experiences a seismic change in performance and capabilities approximately every five years—and Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) is the latest generation of Wi-Fi.

With Wi-Fi synonymous with connectivity, consumers expect and seek out the best Wi-Fi wherever they are. Wi-Fi 6 has the bandwidth, capacity and capabilities to support the ever-expanding requirements of mobile connectivity:

  • Faster network performance—up to four times faster than 802.11.ac
  • Greater capacity—for simultaneous support of users and IoT
  • Reliability—transitions Wi-Fi from a “best-effort” endeavor to a  deterministic wireless technology.
  • Enhanced features—power saving

Ideal for crowded environments with multiple simultaneous users or devices demanding instant immersive connectivity—and necessary for service providers seeking to support higher service-level agreements (SLAs) with more diverse usage profiles.
