Wi-Fi 6 is more than just speed improvements. It greatly increases network capacity to handle groups of devices efficiently, and dramatically improves network performance.
Meet increasing demand
Customer Wi-Fi expectations are high and are only increasing. Deliver a business network without bandwidth or speed dropouts, no matter the number of devices connected.
Built-in power amplifiers, beamforming and 8x8 MU-MIMO push your internet to work smarter, automatically ignoring interference from other networks to improve latency and battery life of devices.
As connectivity rises exponentially, serving clients becomes essential.
Wi-Fi 6 uses 8x8 MU-MIMO to significantly reduce latency, enables uploads and downloads, and has a x4 capacity increase compared to SU-MIMO. Grow your business with greater ease and network capacity than ever before.
Earlier versions of Wi-Fi used SU-MIMO* (Single User Multiple Input Multiple Output), which only allowed communication with multiple devices in consecutive order, or one at a time.
Wi-Fi 6 with MU-MIMO transmits to multiple devices simultaneously via multiple antennas using different wireless signals (2.4 GHz & 5 GHz spatial streams).
A reliable business starts with a reliable network.
OFDMA allows many low-bandwidth streams to transmit in parallel, reducing latency and jitter. Reduced latency is an important requirement for IoT, video and factory automation applications that 802.11ax can now address. Now your business can benefit from smoother video calls, conferences and streaming without interruptions.
Fast-track your data and never queue again.
Because Wi-Fi 6 utilises shorter packet transmissions in parallel, devices no longer have to wait to be sent one at a time. OFDMA optimises this shorter packet transmission to reduce contention and cut down on latency. That means sensitive data, such as voice and IoT, gets an overall big boost to network performance.
A big boost to network performance.
Utilise Wi-Fi 6's 1024 quadrature amplitude modulation (1024 QAM) to facilitate massive amounts of data transfers, which is a big improvement from the previous Wi-Fi 5 modulation scheme (256 QAM). It adds another 2 bits of data per symbol transmitted (total of 10 bits), enabling Wi-Fi 6 to ensure high quality of service (QoS) for high-traffic venues such as sport arenas, train stations, and convention centers. That’s an impressive 25% increase in data rate throughput.
Reliable, better quality Wi-Fi, that reaches further.
An OFDM symbol transmits data, and Wi-Fi 6 introduces 4x longer OFDM symbols. Wi-Fi 6’s longer OFDM symbol divides the data into sub carriers, providing much more stability and allowing more data to be transmitted within the same space. A long OFDM symbol also increases range so your Wi-Fi signal can reach further, especially outdoor.
A true gigabit boost to your business.
Wi-Fi 6 dual-band (2.4 GHz + 5 GHz) technology helps you overcome the limitations of single while maximising each band’s merits. Used in combination with the 1024-QAM, it increases maximum physical (PHY) data transfer speeds to unprecedented levels.
Extends battery life.
Target Wake Time establishes a schedule-based communication environment between the access point and devices to reduce network congestion and power consumption. This Wi-Fi 6 feature is a huge benefit for densely-connected IoT environments, such as wireless sensor networks (WSN) in factory automation and environments where battery conservation is a requirement.
Greatly reduced interference.
To minimise wireless interference, Wi-Fi 6 automatically identifies and ignores signals from another wireless network by using BSS Colouring. The access point can also change its colour if a neighbouring BSS access point is using the same colour (known as colour collision). The access point embeds a blue colour element into the data packet, allowing the device to ignore all signals from the overlapping network, effectively eliminating interference.
