The Wi-Fi CERTIFIED 6 certification program from Wi-Fi Alliance® is here. Users will soon be able to feel the difference with devices based on IEEE 802.11ax.
Moreover, challenging environments – which have many connected devices – like stadiums, airports, and industrial parks will also benefit from the certification program and new features and capabilities.
With the adoption of the latest Wi-Fi increasing, service providers can trust Wi-Fi CERTIFIED will bring the highest standards and the most secure Wi-Fi 6 products, significant capacity, latency improvement, and overall Wi-Fi network performance.
Wi-Fi CERTIFIED 6 supports a variety of devices and applications, from those fit for enterprise environments to those requiring low power and can provide up to four times the capacity of Wi-Fi 5.
“Wi-Fi CERTIFIED 6 is ushering in a new era of Wi-Fi, building on Wi-Fi’s core characteristics to provide better performance in every environment for users, greater network capacity for service providers to improve coverage for their customers, and new opportunities for advanced applications,” said Edgar Figueroa, president and CEO, Wi-Fi Alliance. “Wi-Fi CERTIFIED 6 will deliver improvements in connectivity, including in high density locations and IoT environments.”
These are the advanced capabilities of the Wi-Fi CERTIFIED 6:
- Orthogonal frequency division multiple access (OFDMA)
- Multi-user multiple input multiple output (MU-MIMO)
- 160 MHz channels
- Target wake time (TWT)
- 1024 quadrature amplitude modulation mode (1024-QAM)
- Transmit beamforming
