The demand for wireless access is continuously increasing and with the growing use of tablets, laptops, and mobile phones in the workplace, wireless-network responsiveness and versatility are becoming essential.

Wi-Fi 6 helps accommodate the growing number of mobile and IoT devices by increasing network efficiency and speed to better meet IT and business requirements combined with real-time cloud management for security, visibility, and control.

The Benefits of Wi-Fi 6

  • Higher data rates and faster speeds
  • Increased capacity
  • Improved performance in environments with many connected devices
  • Automated resource management
  • BLE & IoT support
  • Improved power efficiency

Features of Wi-Fi 6

  • Orthogonal Frequency-Division Multiple Access (OFDMA) within Wi-Fi 6 divides channels into smaller segments and allows multiple devices to connect simultaneously.
  • Multi-user Multiple-Input, Multiple-Output (MU-MIMO) allows more downlink data to be transferred at one time, enabling access points (APs) to concurrently handle more devices.
  • Max channel-width – The larger a channel’s width, the more data can be transmitted on it at once, thus increasing throughput and bandwidth, which is important to performance when using high-bandwidth applications like streaming video.
  • Wireless Protected Access 3 (WPA3) is the next evolution of individualized data protection.

How do I choose a Wi-Fi 6 vendor?

  • Demonstrate industry leadership as recognized by leading analysts such as Gartner.
  • Deliver built-in security across wired and wireless networks.
  • Simplify operations by enabling AI and machine learning to automate optimization and provide actionable recommendations to remediate issues in real-time.
  • Offer secure, energy-efficient IoT capabilities to enable you to leverage APs as an IoT connectivity platform using Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE), Zigbee, or USB connectivity.
  • Provide the flexibility to manage on-prem or in the cloud and to deploy with or without local controllers.

When choosing a Wi-Fi vendor it is important to consider your entire platform to identify compatibility or performance bottlenecks.
