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.
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 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.

Not so long ago, the work of system and network administrators was clearly defined, and the interaction of the network components was easier to understand. However, recent years have seen an explosion in the demands on enterprise networks.
Quadruple data throughput, more reliable access to high-traffic networks, higher performance, and lower battery consumption for end devices: There is much for users of wireless LAN to look forward to with the new WLAN standard, Wi-Fi 6. The IEEE has announced that the finalized standard is due to be ready soon.
