The latest version of Wi-Fi, or Wi-Fi 6 is a game changer and will usher in a dramatically better broadband experience for consumers and business. Based on the latest 802.11 standard, or 802.11ax, Wi-Fi 6 technology is now available and offers service providers a great opportunity to provide vastly better in-home broadband.

Wi-Fi 6 also ushers in a new naming convention for Wi-Fi. Previously, Wi-Fi versions were labeled by their 802.11 standards, as in 802.11ac, or 802.11n. But the Wi-Fi Alliance moved to this simpler numbered naming convention with the introduction of 802.11ax, or better known now as Wi-Fi 6.

Wi-Fi improves on previous technologies by enhancing ‘multi-user, multiple input, multiple output’ or MU-MIMO, and with ‘orthogonal frequency division multiple access’, or OFDMA technology. The end result is gigabit-capable speeds, many more connected devices, and better in-home range.

In effect Wi-Fi 6 will allow service providers to ensure that the robust broadband service delivered by fiber broadband can be experienced throughout the entire home, whereas previous versions of Wi-Fi could not exploit the full power of fiber broadband.

The FCC just made Wi-Fi 6 even better by opening up more unlicensed spectrum for Wi-Fi use. This action opens up 1,200 MHz of spectrum in the 6 GHz band, adding a huge amount of spectrum that’s almost tailor made to enable the added power of Wi-Fi 6. The Wi-Fi alliance has already designated Wi-Fi 6E as the designation for Wi-Fi use in this new spectrum.
