With WiFi6 more bandwidth but above all better management of the many devices connected at home

in #wifisix2 years ago

The near future of home WiFi links is focused on the new WiFi6 standard, a commercial 801.11/axis name that is gradually gaining ground among producers of network access devices even in the consumer context.

Several motherboard companies have presented fresh top-of - the-range models with this sort of connectivity at Computex 2019 in Taipei in latest weeks. Samsung has already introduced WiFi6 with its Galaxy S10 family smartphones and expects the progressive spread of this technology to other models scheduled for sale in the second half of the year. Lenovo is one of the first businesses to announce notebooks and equip2-in-1 with wireless connectivity of this sort.

We have encountered Netgear in these days, a company that has historically placed itself as a pioneer in the introduction of new connectivity techniques in products for market sale. Netgear had already shown the first WiFi6 routers prepared for the trade at CES 2019, last January: these products are now also accessible for sale in Italy, with 3 dual band alternatives from the Nighthawk family that will also be added from the first tri band model from the month of July.

Netgear has selected to present the Nighthawk family's first models to meet the typical requirements of gaming lovers and those who need a single WiFi6 router to install their home. We will also see proposals from the Orbi family in the coming months, with internally fitted satellites that utilize Mesh technology with WiFi6 connectivity. At this stage, it is simple to hypothesize that nearly all Netgear proposals will migrate even with entry-level designs on WiFi6 connectivity technology over the next 12 months.

What are the advantages to the home user of the shift to a WiFi6 router? Discounted highlights an increase in the bandwidth of data transmission, but this is not the real value added. We can explain WiFi6 with a similarity to the 5 G wireless connectivity technology: it increases velocity, but more than that the latest technology improves latency and enables a big range of devices to be managed simultaneously and with high effectiveness.

All this is also accomplished by using which network-connected customers are WiFi5-based devices, hence the classic 802.11/ac. Such devices are progressively present in the home, with router demands ranging from big transmission bandwidth (such as streaming video streams, for instance) to the need to always be linked and sensitive to instructions (such as intelligent lights).

Installing a WiFi6 infrastructure now enables you to better control the traffic of the various WiFi5 devices current in our local network, opening room for the superior results of WiFi6 systems that will gradually enter our homes from private laptops and smartphones of the next generation. Therefore, a buy evidence of future development, but which already introduces more and more linked equipment to households. With an instrumental analysis in editing, we will deepen the theme in the coming weeks to assess the advantages of using a WiFi6 router compared to a WiFi5 mirror with countless concurrently linked appliances.
