Wi-Fi 6

(Showing 8 of 8)

Buy the next generation of Wi-Fi, know as Wi-Fi 6.

What is Wi-Fi 6?

In layman terms the theoretical speed limit is 9.6 Gpbs, While Wi-Fi 5 has speed of 3.5 Gbps.

What are some Wi-Fi 6 benefits?

Not only do you get more speed potential but Wi-Fi 6 device are better at handling mutliple device simutaniously. Such technology as MU-MIMO and OFDMA.

MU-MIMO, which stands for “multi-user, multiple input, multiple output,” is already in use in modern routers and devices, but Wi-Fi 6 upgrades it.

MU-MIMO allows routers to communicate with four devices at a time. Wi-Fi 6 will allow devices to communicate with up to eight.

The other new technology, OFDMA, which stands for “orthogonal frequency division multiple access,” allows one transmission to deliver data to multiple devices at once.

What is the security standard for Wi-Fi- 6?

With a new security protocol called WPA3. WPA3 makes it harder for hackers to crack passwords by constantly guessing them, and it makes some data less useful even if hackers manage to obtain it. For a Wi-Fi 6 device to receive certification from the Wi-Fi Alliance, WPA3 is required.
