Wi Fi 6: H. Wi-Fi Alliance started on Monday a new era with the launch of the Wi-Fi Certified 6 program.
Wi Fi 6 (also known as 802.11ax) was officially introduced at speeds up to 37% higher than the previous generation Wi-Fi (802.11ac), increased bandwidth for higher latency performance, greater network capacity, and MU- support MIMO (Multi-User Multiple Input Multiple Output) for greater download efficiency on multiple devices at the same time.
Edgar Figueroa, president and CEO of Wi-Fi Alliance, said:
Wi-Fi CERTIFIED 6 is launching a new era in Wi-Fi for better performance in every environment for users, greater networking capability for service providers, improved customer coverage and new opportunities for advanced applications. Wi-Fi CERTIFIED 6 will offer connectivity improvements, even in high-density locations and in IoT environments.
Wi-Fi CERTIFIED 6 also supports the latest generation of Wi-Fi security, WPA3. Supports multiple rectangular frequency division access (OFDMA) to increase network efficiency and reduce latency in both Download and Upload in high demand environments. It supports target wake time (TWT) to significantly improve battery life on Wi-Fi devices and quadrature amplitude modulation (1024-QAM) to increase the availability of Wi-Fi devices.
The first Wi-Fi CERTIFIED 6 products (Wi Fi 6) have the following chips:
- Broadcom® BCM4375
- Broadcom® BCM43698
- Broadcom® BCM43684
