The next generation of the Wi-Fi standard is Wi-Fi 6, also known as 802.11ax, the latest step in a journey of nonstop innovation. The standard builds on the strengths of 802.11ac while adding efficiency, flexibility, and scalability that allows new and existing networks increased speed and capacity with next-generation applications.
Both Wi-Fi 6 and 5G are built from the same foundation but they are not the same. They both provide higher data rates to support new applications and increases in network capacity with the ability to connect more users and devices. They will co-exist and work better together to support different use cases.
Wi-Fi 6 will continue to be the access choice for indoor networks. With improvements in speed, latency, and higher density of connected devices, Wi-Fi 6 is ideal for indoor enterprise networks. It’s also an ideal system in areas where access points will serve more users, such as stadiums and convention centers.
5G will be the designated choice for outdoor networks. 5G hasn’t fully rolled out yet. However, the early businesses cases, which include fixed wireless (broadband backhaul), connected cars, drones and smart cities make it the preferred method for outdoor networks.
Wi-Fi 6 and 5G expand opportunities for digitization across all industries. Wi-Fi 6 and 5G introduce the new era of wireless access. Their convergence enables organizations to do business anywhere while increasing productivity and offering the best user experience.
