What is WiFi 6? (802.11AX)
WiFi 6 (802.11ax) is designed to improve speed, increase efficiency and reduce congestion in heavy bandwidth usage scenarios.
GNS Wireless will help deliver powerful, easy to use wireless networks with seamless roaming. Smarter, simpler more reliable WiFi means higher efficiency and less maintenance and a better overall WiFi experience for guests.
WiFi 6 is the next generation standard in WiFi technology. WiFi 6 also known as “AX WiFi” or “802.11ax WiFi” builds and improves on the current 802.11ac WiFi standard. WiFi 6 was originally built in response to the growing number of devices in the world. If you own a large campground or marina, rv park, or simply have a large number of devices in your household or business, then a WiFi 6 solution might just be the best solution for you. Wi-Fi 6 routers and access points are faster, increase efficiency, and are better at transferring data than previous generations.
Where 802.11ac made your network faster, 802.11ax is designed for higher channel efficiency in a dense networking environment. More users, more data…no problem.
Provide Connections to More Devices Simultaneously
With 8 x 8 MU-MIMO
With traditional MU-MIMO, multiple users can access the router or access point simultaneously without any noticeable decreases in bandwidth quality– up to a point. However, with 8 x 8 MU-MIMO, more than 8 streams are available for users to choose from. And whereas 802.11ac MU-MIMO only works for downloads, 8 x 8 MU-MIMO works with both uploads and downloads. This means that whether you’re streaming, downloading, working, or playing with WiFi 6’s 8 streams, there’s more than enough bandwidth for everyone.
Should you upgrade your Network to Wi-Fi 6?
When deciding when to consider a network upgrade, network operators need to calculate the cost/benefit of upgrading to 802.11ax. The new Wi-Fi 6 access points improve performance and efficiency beyond 802.11ac networks even without the use of 802.11ax devices. By upgrading now, you will have the ability to deliver more simultaneous video streams, and support more concurrent users and devices than before.
If your RV Park or Campground is expanding, if you are seeing an increase in user complaints regarding streaming, or if you just want to future proof your network…Contact GNS Wireless today to discuss upgrade options.
