What You Should Know
There is a new standard in WiFi called WiFi 6. It aims to not only boost WiFi speeds for end users, but also improve the way the WiFi networks function by adding substantially higher capacity, better coverage and reducing congestion to deliver a better user experience.
WiFi 6 improves your customers' frustrating WiFi experiences and security concerns.
The Number of Devices Per Household is Skyrocketing
The number of connected devices in the home was increasing just as people added strain to home WiFi with even more work-at-home and video streaming activities. WiFi 6 is specifically-designed to address the issues of device-packed homes.
WiFi 6 Solves Overall Frustrating WiFi Experiences Such as:
- Slow WiFi Speeds
- Poor WiFi Coverage
- WiFi Connectivity Lapses
WiFi 6 Improves Security Concerns Such as:
- Data theft over home WiFi network
- Hackers have access to more devices
WiFi 6 Increases Customer Satisfaction & Reduces Support Calls
Improves throughput even in real-world busy environments for less lag and buffer times.
Connects MORE devices simultaneously without a reduction in performance.
Increases coverage to solve WiFi dead zones.
Enhances security via WPA3 and allows easier onboarding of IoT devices with Easy Connect.

WiFi 6 FAQ
What will End Users notice?
End users will enjoy faster speeds on busy networks. Since WiFi 6 is still very new, end users will not be able to take advantage of the benefits of a WiFi 6 Gateway until their devices are also WiFi 6-enabled. This includes phones, laptops, etc.
What does it mean for the Service provider?
While there is no quick, universal adoption coming, you have time to transition to a WiFi 6 Gateway before mainstream usage. Ideally, Service Providers should stay ahead of home and business customers, first with information, then with appropriate changes to the network or, in this case, the Gateway.
Interested in upgrading your network?
Orthogonal frequency division multiple access (OFDMA) enables users to simultaneously operate in the same channel and therefore improves efficiency, latency, and throughput.
with Transmit Beamforming
Transmit beamforming improves signal power resulting in significantly higher rates at a given range.
More Data Packets Per Symbol
1024 quadrature amplitude modulation mode (1024-QAM) enables throughput increases by as much as 25% over WiFi 5.
Connect More Devices Simultaneously
Multi-user multiple input, multiple output (MU-MIMO) allows more data to be transferred at once and enables an access point to handle a larger number of concurrent clients.
Reduce Power Consumption
With Target Wake Time
Target Wake Time (TWT) allows for resource scheduling which significantly improves device battery life.
