The next generation of the Wi-Fi standard is Wi-Fi 6, also known as 802.11ax, the latest step in a journey of non-stop innovation.
The standard builds on the strengths of 802.11ac while adding efficiency, flexibility, and scalability that allows new and existing networks increased speed and capacity with next-generation applications.
The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) proposed the Wi-Fi 6 standard so it can couple the freedom and high speed of Gigabit Ethernet wireless with the reliability and predictability found in licensed radio.
A more consistent and dependable network connection provides a seamless experience for clients, Internet of Things (IoT), and all apps, especially voice and video.
As wireless demands increase and include more IoT devices, Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) handles more data across the airways than previous Wi-Fi standards. It also handles more active clients per access point.
Wi-Fi 6 achieves speeds up to 4 times faster than previous Wi-Fi standards, improving the user experience and performance of bandwidth-hungry apps like voice, video, and collaboration
The last upgrade for 2.4 GHz was 10 years ago. Wi-Fi 6 brings new improvements to the 2.4-GHz band that make your wireless work better with IoT devices that require more energy efficiency and better Wi-Fi coverage
