A 2019 Study by Deloitte found that the average US household has 11 connected devices, highlighting consumers’ increased demand for connectivity. 802.11ax aims to provide a better Wi-Fi experience for users in environments where Wi-Fi demand is high.
What is Wi-Fi 6?
Wi-Fi 6 is designed to offer:
- Higher data rates (meaning faster connections)
- Increased capacity (the ability for more devices to connect without compromising your connection speed or quality)
- High performance in environments where many devices are connected
- Improved power efficiency (since multiple devices striving for a decent connection in traditional Wi-Fi environments often expend large amounts of battery power trying to get a good signal)
- Enhanced security (via support for Wi-Fi Certified WPA3)
What’s the Difference Between Wi-Fi 6 & 5G?
What 802.11ax Means for New Mobile Devices
Access Points Now Include Built-in 802.11ax Capabilities
- Multi-Dwelling Units (MDUs). Residents in housing complexes and condominium communities expect a high-quality Wi-Fi connection. However, when the purchase of Wi-Fi gear is left up to individual tenants, each system ends up competing with its neighbors for a robust signal. By deploying centrally managed Wi-Fi solutions, building managers can solve in-building Wi-Fi performance challenges and generate additional income.
- Post-Secondary Campuses. College and university campuses need to offer fast, reliable Wi-Fi to ensure students can learn, conduct research, and complete assignments anywhere on campus from lecture halls to student housing to recreation areas. CommScope has extensive experience mapping coverage and deploying APs effectively to maximize coverage while minimizing equipment costs.
- Large Venues. Venues such as conference centers and stadiums require reliable, high-speed internet that can support thousands of devices at a time. CommScope can help ensure that your conference attendees or sports fans can enjoy a fast and reliable connection no matter where they are in your building.
- Primary Schools. Primary schools are increasingly turning to technology to enhance the student learning experience; from Chromebooks to virtual reality, schools were relying on the internet even before in-person classes began to move online. To help students access the resources they need, many primary school districts (including Millard Public Schools) rely on CommScope to provide the infrastructure. Schools need to support the wealth of connected devices students rely on and allow teachers to enhance their lessons with video streaming via reliable, always-on Wi-Fi.
