Digital transformation, Cloud Applications, IoT, Hybrid Work culture & collaborative tools have increased the importance of Wireless. Today, most of the Enterprise applications are accessed from Mobile Devices like Laptops and Smartphones which gets connected to network over Wireless (Wi-Fi). Today the role of Wi-Fi has changed from “nice to have” to “must have” and has become the primary means of connectivity for most organizations. Hence wireless connectivity is essential for every business. Wi-Fi is no more just about coverage, as it needs to support – high-density, low latency, offer best of security along with high quality of service (QoS) for real-time applications, and seamless user experience. That’s where Wi-Fi 6 comes into picture.
Wi-Fi 6 offers faster speeds, improved network efficiency, better device density handling, and enhanced security compared to Wi-Fi 5. It is designed to provide better performance and capabilities for modern high-bandwidth applications and environments with a large number of connected devices. Wi-Fi 6 is not just one more standard with simple improvement in the speed. Wi-Fi 6 is the latest Wi-Fi standard that offers advanced features such as OFDMA, TWT, BSS Coloring, 1024-QAM and MU-MIMO to optimize spectral efficiency, increase throughput and reduce power consumption.
