Why Wi-Fi 6 and Wi-Fi 6E are Experiencing Growth


The Wi-Fi market has been seeing a lot of traction within Wi-Fi 6, with the new protocol providing a number of advantages over its predecessors. Wi-Fi 6 doubles the available channel width, provides faster connectivity, uses OFDMA for channel sharing to increase efficiency, provides 8x8 MU-MIMO for connecting more devices, uses BSS coloring to improve efficiency by detecting with device connects to which router, uses beamforming for higher data rates, and uses TWT for improve device battery life by detecting when to send or receive data. All of this allows for use cases such as 8K video streaming, large file downloads and uploads, and smart home, with the ability to connect large numbers of devices simultaneously. More companies within the market are developing and offering Wi-Fi 6 enabled devices and solutions to take advantage of these benefits and enable new use cases.

Wi-Fi 6E has also been seeing a lot of development, providing access to the 6 GHz band to increase speeds, reduce latencies, and support more simultaneous connectivity’s due to the extra, empt…
