Wi-Fi 6 (Wi-Fi 6) is the latest standard for “wireless LAN” and just like 5G, many users are skeptical about the importance of setting up this network. In this article, we will explain about the new WiFi network technology and its importance.
Wi-Fi 6, also known as 802.11ax, is the latest Wi-Fi standard, which is faster and more efficient than the previous version, Wi-Fi 5 or 802.11ac. Its focus is primarily on minimizing network congestion.
Wi-Fi 6 uses a multi-user multi-input system (MU-MIMO) that allows multiple users to connect to and access it simultaneously. It also uses OFDMA modulation, which improves bandwidth allocation and thus efficiency. In addition, despite the “transfer beam shaping” signal transmission method, its signal quality and range have been improved.
While these technologies do not have much impact on the home network, they are great for public Wi-Fi networks. The Wi-Fi Association recommends the use of this standard for retailers, apartment blocks, transportation centers and stadiums.
Wi-Fi 6 also offers very high speeds and a maximum throughput of 9.6 Gbps, which is an improvement over the accepted generation. Its security features have also been improved to make it much harder to crack the WiFi password in this standard.
Is Wi-Fi 6 worth upgrading?
Be sure to note that the latest devices on the market come with support for the Wi-Fi 6 standard. However, some users may be wondering if they should upgrade their network to Wi-Fi 6? There are a few things to keep in mind when answering this question.
If your current Wi-Fi network provides good speed and service, you probably do not need to do this. In general, if the speed is not very different between devices that are connected via Ethernet cable and devices that are connected via Wi-Fi, your current network will probably do its job well.
Of course, it should be noted that Wi-Fi 6 has other benefits besides speed. So if a lot of devices are connected to your Wi-Fi network, it might be worth upgrading to the next generation of standard wireless networking.
How to upgrade to WiFi 6?
As we said, WiFi 6 is a new standard, so you will need a new router to start with, such as the Archer AX73 or Netgear Orbi Wi-Fi 6 System. Also make sure your router is in the location that provides the most speed.
Of course, first of all, it should be noted that your device must also support Wi-Fi 6 standard. Many phones, laptops, tablets and other new electronics support this standard.
Finally, it should be noted that the previous WiFi 6 standard is compatible, meaning it will also support your older devices. With this in mind, it is best to upgrade your network first and then upgrade your devices according to the circumstances.
