Are you suffering from a slow network due to huge video calls and cloud storage??
Here is a simple solution for it, which helped one of our existing clients, offlet IT person was getting complaints about a slow network from users, We understood the challenge faced by him, and replaced the existing router to wifi 6.
So what is Wi-Fi 6 ? and its advantages
Wi-Fi 6 is the next generation of Wi-Fi. It will still do the same basic thing — connect you to the internet — just with a bunch of additional technologies to make that happen more efficiently, speeding up connections in the process. Wi-Fi 6 introduces some new mechanics to help blunt the issues that come with putting dozens of Wi-Fi devices on a single network. It lets routers communicate with more devices at once, lets routers send data to multiple devices in the same broadcast and lets Wi-Fi devices schedule check-ins with the router. Together, those features should keep connections strong even as more and more devices start demanding data.
What are the Advantages of WiFi 6?
WiFi 6 is more than just a new name and a set of defined conventions. There are many important improvements that are registered into WiFi 6 that will make it much more useful to wireless users around the world. Let’s take a closer look at some of the advantages of using WiFi 6.
It provides a greater data transfer speed:
Each generation of WiFi has offered greater data transfer speed and WiFi 6 is no exception. The theoretical speed of WiFi 6 is 10Gbps. It completes this speed increase by combining the 2.4GHx and 5GHz spectrum bands and employing MU-MIMO technology for both uplink and downlink data transfers. More active data encoding leads to a higher throughput. More powerful chips used to encode and decode signals allow more data to be carried by the same radio waves. A single device can achieve up to 40% faster data transfer when using WiFi 6 versus WiFi 5. Even 2.4GHz networks will experience increased speeds when using a WiFi 6 router.
Increased battery life:
Another important benefit provided by the move to WiFi 6 is the increased battery life that devices accessing a WiFi 6 network will enjoy. This development is beneficial to the average user and can be an important factor in enabling low-power devices that comprise the Internet of Things to make use of WiFi communication.
Better performance in congested settings:
One of the ways that WiFi performance can be negatively affected is when it is used in cramped areas where there is competition for the signal. WiFi 6 engages a number of latest technologies to increase the service of WiFi by reducing the problems of network congestion. It performs well in both indoor and outdoor environments. To achieve this, it uses longer symbol duration and cyclic prefix (CP) in outdoor environments whereas it uses shorter CP in indoor environments.
Wi-Fi 6 can even focus its signal towards the location of a wireless device to improve speed and reliability. Through the use of Beamforming, the signal is focussed on the guidance of the device rather than being a persistent signal spread evenly across the location. This improves the speed and reliability of the network.
The introduction of certifications from the Wi-Fi Alliance actually enforces its use and so provides a more secure arrangement overall and it features major security enhancements that have eliminated some of the weaknesses of older wi-fi technology and apply enhanced encryption where it’s needed, all in a transparent way for the benefit of visitors, hotspot providers and facilities. Thus, the establishment of Wi-Fi Alliance certifications enforces its use and provides a secure arrangement in general as better encryption and greater protection against computer intrusions.
