What is WiFi 6? Faster Speeds, Lower Latency

Discover what WiFi 6 is and how it's revolutionizing wireless connectivity.
Date: September 21, 2023
What is wifi 6

WiFi 6 is the latest version of wireless networking. It builds upon the previous generations of WiFi technology, such as WiFi 5 and has several improvements in terms of speed, capacity, and efficiency. Some features and benefits of WiFi 6 include:

  • Faster Speeds: WiFi 6 can offer speeds up to 9.6 Gbps, which is a big leap from WiFi 5's 3.5 Gbps. Actual speeds depend on a lot of factors, but you're definitely going to get a boost.
  • Lower Latency: This is a gamer's dream. Lower latency means less lag, so your online gaming or video conferencing experience is smoother. No more choppy Zoom calls or missing out on the 'Winner, Winner, Chicken Dinner' moment in PUBG because of lag.
  • Improved Efficiency: WiFi 6 has something called OFDMA (Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiple Access). It's a mouthful, but it essentially means that a single channel can handle more devices at once, making your network more efficient.
  • Better Range: While WiFi 6 doesn't necessarily extend the range of your network, its efficiency improvements could mean you get higher-quality connections at the edges of your network. So, no more wandering around the house looking for that one sweet spot with good reception.
  • Enhanced Battery Life: The Target Wake Time (TWT) feature lets devices "schedule" their check-ins with the router, reducing the amount of time they need to keep their antennas powered. This can extend battery life on devices like smartphones and smart home gadgets.
  • Better in Crowded Areas: If you've ever tried to use WiFi in a packed stadium or even in a busy office, you'll know the struggle is real. WiFi 6 shines in crowded environments, allowing more devices to connect with less interference.
  • Stronger Security: WiFi 6 comes with WPA3, the latest security protocol. It's an upgrade that makes your network more secure compared to older versions.
  • Future-Proofing: As more devices become WiFi 6-compatible, having a WiFi 6 network sets you up for the future, making sure you can take full advantage of newer tech as it comes along.

Overall, WiFi 6 is a significant upgrade that delivers faster speeds with enhanced efficiency. This makes it ideal for use in environments where many devices are connected to the same network, such as office buildings, airports, and stadiums.
