Fact check: Mid-range Wi-Fi 5 vs. entry-level Wi-Fi 6 access points

When it comes to local networking and wireless LAN, most people are interested in its speed. With Wi-Fi 6 or IEEE 802.11ax, the next standard for new access points is already on the market. Along with higher data throughput per Wi-Fi client, it promises greater efficiency especially in high-density environments. In theory this is an […]

Wi-Fi 6: More power for your network with BSS Coloring

BSS Coloring Wi-Fi 6

The excitement about Wi-Fi 6 is not so much about being faster; rather, the biggest boost comes with the improved efficiency of data transfer with large numbers of clients. A major contributor here is a special method known as Basic Service Set (BSS) Coloring.

Wi-Fi 6: Faster and energy efficient thanks to QAM and TWT

The new wireless LAN standard Wi-Fi 6 is being advertised as bringing the Internet to as many users as possible, but there are other important benefits, too. After all, Wi-Fi 6 makes wireless surfing and working significantly faster. What’s more, a completely new technology means noticeable cost savings due to significantly reduced power consumption.

Wi-Fi 6 as a traffic control system for data

Wi-Fi networks are like crowded streets. One vehicle traveling too slowly causes everyone else to jam up. This is a problem many hotspot users will have noticed. Because the only result is horribly slow Internet. The Wi-Fi-6 technologies Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) and Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiple Access (OFDMA) put an end to this.
