Wi-Fi 6 is coming and starting to move toward a new mainstream, and we are eventually the time to say goodbye to Wi-Fi 5. In case you are not yet aware of the difference, see this summary.
We are talking about faster Wi-Fi connectivity for almost everyone for all kinds of use cases, whether for consumer individual entertainment or business applications run by companies. Faster means time saved as a result in the aggregate term. Previous standards had a focus on speeds to get devices information as fast as possible, but they were lacking efficiency. A single device performing poorly could impact the network for all other devices within the cell. Now that we are faced with the wave of IoT and mobile devices continually growing, there is a need for devices to be able to communicate without impacting others.
Wi-Fi 5 is 802.11ac run on 5 Ghz Bands, data rates of 86.7Mbps (20Mhz), 433.3mbps (80Mhz) and 6933Mbps (160Mhz). Wi-Fi 6 is 802.11ax run on 2.4 Ghz and 5Ghz Band, and data rate of 143.Mbps (20Mhz), 600.5Mbps (80Mhz), 9607.8Mbps (160Mhz). So we are talking about close to 10Ghz data rate at 160Mhz. That practically can be used to replace wired infrastructure for most of the use cases in daily life, if you have a device and system can make use of that data rate.
It designs for modern use cases, as we got more and more IoT devices in place. As device density increases so do the speeds reduce as the logically result. But with Wi-Fi 6 make use of Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiple Access (OFDMA) to split the load when a signal is sent out, so it can talk to several devices at the same time, you can imagine what it happen as a result, it will achieve what we call fast even when congested.
Allow focused Beams, beamforming to focus signal in the direction of the device to improve speed and reliability of the connection. With this new way for connectivity, it actually makes sure the device is getting more reliability of the connection.
E-SPIN Group in the enterprise ICT solution supply, consulting, project management, training and maintenance for multinational corporation and government agencies across region E-SPIN did business. Feel free to contact E-SPIN for the various requirements, such as how to visualize Wi-Fi 6 network signal, noise and interference, or perform WLAN visual mapping to your workplace, factory, shopping mall, so you get can get the clear visibility for the current WLAN network performance and blindspot, as well as recommendation which location addition of device, or to supply and perform wireless network access point (AP) and security audit and penetration testing.
