Next-generation Wi-Fi products
A complete range of Wi-Fi 6E access points—with multigigabit technology—allows you to optimize wireless access for a seamless hybrid work experience with faster connections, greater user capacity, and more coverage.
When Wi-Fi was first introduced, there was only the amazing 802.11b protocol, and operations were limited to the 2.4 GHz spectrum only. As the technology advanced, both the protocols and radio designs changed and Wi-Fi slowly grew into a very mixed environment, with Wi-Fi 1 through 6 now being supported. Arguably, one of the reasons that Wi-Fi has been so successful is the backward compatibility that’s built in to ensure that previous-generation protocols can still be used. Today it’s quite common to find a mix of client types and capabilities operating on the Wi-Fi network.
It turns out that this is suboptimal for two reasons:
● Older clients simply are not as efficient and require a larger share of the air time to send the same amount of data.
● The management protocol overhead needed to maintain backward compatibility often is measurable and contributes to further efficiency losses.
The net result is that figuring out what the capacity will be in a given environment really comes down to the current (often random and variable) mix of client capabilities sharing the cell. Sadly, the answer to the question of how much capacity will be achieved is frequently “it depends on the client mix.”
Wi-Fi 6E does away with the multiprotocol complexities of the past by limiting access to only Wi-Fi 6 and newer protocols in the 6 GHz band. Coupling the Wi-Fi 6 protocol with Wi-Fi 6E spectrum will allow Wi-Fi 6 abilities to shine in an essentially greenfield environment. Wi-Fi 6 provides a deterministic, scheduled MAC and supports network segmentation, outstanding QoE, and optimized latency of under 2 ms one way. This allows a significantly better answer than “it depends.” Newer standards will be admitted over time, such as Wi-Fi 7, which is already being discussed in the IEEE standards body. The differences between newer generations of protocols and the compatibility mechanisms will be more subtle than the quantum shifts experienced from Wi-Fi 1 to Wi-Fi 6. It really is like a “do-over” for Wi-Fi, breaking its chains and moving beyond its history to shine anew.
