Here comes faster 802.11ax Wi-Fi

PixabayThe new Wi-Fi standard 802.11ax promises faster speed even over multiple connections.

802.11ax networks should be able to pump four times as much data as today's 802.11ac networks to each device in crowded situations, National Instruments estimates, in part by beaming data toward specific phones, PCs and other devices instead of bathing an entire room with radio signals.

Analyst firm IHS Markit forecasts 802.11ax-enabled device shipments will increase from a relative trickle of 116,000 units in 2019 to a flood of 58 million in 2021. Problems with compatibility can cause a fair amount of frustration for end users, especially if they have equipment that does not work well with the latest 802.11ax client devices (laptops, 2 in 1s, etc.). Certain chips from Intel to be released this year will support the new standard.

The new Intel chipsets will be based on Draft 2.0 of the 802.11ax standard and it is important for all infrastructure devices to adhere to Draft 2.0 and not Draft 1.0, to ensure interoperability.

Wi-Fi router: D-Link's AC2600 Wi-Fi route is based on Intel's Home Wi-Fi Chipset WAV500 Series, which also appears in Asus' Blue Cave Wi-Fi router.

Intel's 802.11ax home Wi-Fi chipsets are architected for our connected, digital lifestyles. In addition, the chipset is engineered to deliver enhanced throughput rates for a mix of small and large packet sizes. IEEE is now working on the next gen WiFi standard named 802.11ax which will offer up to 40 percent faster data transfer speed when compared to the current 801.11ac standard. Celeno´s extensive chip portfolio and ground-breaking software technologies are created to excel in real life, highly interfered dense network scenarios, delivering the level of management, performance, speed, coverage, reliability and superlative user experience demanded by Wi-Fi users. However, Intel is also making its own optimizations to the standard for better performance amongst its own 802.11ax devices.
