WiFi 6: 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.
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.
Introducing: Comtrend's Newest WiFi 6 Gateways
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.
