Technology continues to evolve rapidly, and we are doing our best to keep up with the latest trends. Therefore, we will increase the number of devices in our mobile and wireless networks.
The increase in traffic and the demand for better performance have driven us to evolve and find better and more efficient ways to connect.
If we realize the “futuristic” world of smart cities and IoT, we must further improve our connections. And now we can connect to the internet even faster with WI-FI 6 and 5G.
The excitement around these two technologies is not new, but it's time to prepare for the ultimate changes we'll see. As a business or homeowner, you'll want to prepare for these changes to take full advantage of faster wireless internet speeds.
Both new generation wireless and mobile technologies, Wi-Fi 6 and 5G offer the promise of higher capacity, lower latency, and higher efficiency in the consumer and professional markets.
We are in the early stages of implementing both technologies, but they will play a critical role in networking in the future.
What is 5G?
It is the next-generation mobile phone network after 4G, LTE, and LTE Advanced. However, this is more than just higher speed and more data.
It offers the potential to connect millions of devices for IoT or extensive machine-to-machine communication and billions of devices.
Also, any business that wants a highly secure and reliable network with extensive end-to-end service capabilities will consider 5G an option.
What is WI-FI 6?
Wi-Fi 6 (or 802.11ax) is the newest wireless transmission standard – it's faster, more comprehensive, and smarter.
Wi-Fi 6 tests conducted by companies such as Cisco, Intel, Boingo, and the Wireless Broadband Alliance, even when used in harsh environments requiring many connected devices: busy sporting events, heavy traffic airports, and large business parks – Wi-Fi 6, higher speeds, improved provided security and more reliable connection.
We can expect higher efficiency and less latency on Wi-Fi 6 devices. The Commercial Benefits of 5G and Wi-Fi 6 adoption are still here in their early days, but both offer great potential for businesses of all sizes.
Every industry will benefit from higher data rates and less network latency, but sectors that rely heavily on connected devices and mobility will benefit most from these new technologies.
WI-FI 6 use cases:
Better video and audio experience: This means that the end-user can work from anywhere, for example, inside or outside the office, without compromising the experience.
Wireless coverage in buildings: This means messy wiring can be eliminated since most of the devices will be connected wirelessly.
Cloud Computing Benefits: Cloud Resources will be more accessible, faster, and easier to deploy.
IoT Convergence: The number of devices can increase significantly.
Higher bandwidth devices can be used wirelessly, such as IP surveillance cameras with improved performance.
5G Usage Scenarios
Seamless Wireless Experience: 5G combined with Wi-Fi 6 helps users have the best connection wherever they are.
Redundant connectivity: New firewalls are Wi-Fi 6 and 5G compatible, allowing you to use 5G as a backup connection.
Now you can enjoy a faster and better internet connection with routers with WIFI 6 and laptops with WIFI 6. It's time to get excited about something sure to revolutionize the way we work. Things that seemed impossible in the past may happen soon as we continue to improve wireless connections.
