The next generation of wireless communications

 

 

What is WiFi 6 ?

WiFi 6 is the next generation standard in WiFi technology. Also known as 802.11ax, WiFi 6 expands the current 802.11ac standard by improving efficiency, flexibility, and scalability.
WiFi 6 allows new and existing networks to significantly increase speed and capacity to meet the demands of next-generation applications.
ACKSYS next generation access points are the essential networking solutions for companies looking to enhance their wireless access capabilities.

 

WiFi 6 advanced connectivity

 

– Benefits –

 

– Features –

  • Orthogonal frequency division multiple access (OFDMA) effectively shares channels to increase network efficiency and lower latency for both uplink and downlink traffic in high demand environments
  • Multi-User MIMO also named MU-MIMO allows a Wireless Access Point (WAP) to send data simultaneously to several Wi-Fi clients. The result is a significant increase of data rates
  • 160 MHz channel utilization capability increases bandwidth to deliver greater performance with low latency
  • Target wake time (TWT) significantly improves network efficiency and device battery life, including IoT devices
  • 1024 quadrature amplitude modulation mode (1024-QAM) increases throughput for emerging, bandwidth intensive uses by encoding more data in the same amount of spectrum
  • Transmit beamforming enables higher data rates at a given range to increase network capacity

 

 

WiFi 6 vs. WiFi 6E

 

It is the same standard, extended to the 6 GHz band (between 5925 and 7125 MHz).
WiFi 6E offers a larger band of 1200 MHz and thus is aimed for short distances connections but with a huge data rate (up to 11 Gb/s), and a lower latency.
