Major contributor towards Wi-Fi 6 standards Best Experience First commercial use of a Wi-Fi 6 network
  • Major contributor of Wi-Fi 6 standards

    Huawei is a major contributor in the coming Wi-Fi 6 era

    Wi-Fi 6, the sixth generation of the Wi-Fi standard, introduces key 5G technologies, such as Orthogonal Frequency-Division Multiple Access (OFDMA), uplink Multi-User MIMO (MU-MIMO), and higher-order coding 1,024-QAM. Wi-Fi 6 achieves four times higher network bandwidth and four times more concurrent users than Wi-Fi 5, as well as reducing the average network latency from 30 milliseconds to 20 milliseconds. Huawei experts are chairpersons of five 802.11 standard working groups. With such extensive understanding and strong expertise in 5G technologies, Huawei is a major contributor to Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) standards.

  • Best Experience

    Wi-Fi 6 products powered by Huawei 5G ensure the best business experience

    All-connected: Access from any number of terminals of any type and at any location

    On-demand: Ultra-high bandwidth and ultra-low latency, accelerating key services

    Always-on: Seamless roaming without packet loss for 100% stability

  • First commercial use of a Wi-Fi 6 network

    Industry’s first commercial use of a Wi-Fi 6 network, becoming the market leader

    In September 2018, Huawei deployed the industry’s first Wi-Fi 6 networks in the ‘Super i-Shanghai’ project, Zhejiang University, and a Belgian Energy Company, receiving extremely positive customer feedback. In the ‘Super i-Shanghai’ project, it was previously difficult to connect more than 60 users to a single AP without causing disruption to the Wi-Fi network. Since upgrading to the Huawei Wi-Fi 6 product, more than 240 concurrent users are able to connect to the wireless network, greatly improving accessibility.

    In 2019, with more customers recognizing and accepting the product, Huawei has signed more commercial Wi-Fi 6 contracts than any other vendor in the world, identifying itself as a market leader. Huawei will continue to develop and improve the Wi-Fi 6 network, creating an outstanding business experience and building service value.

Do You Need Wi-Fi 6?

Digital spaces are now using vast numbers of IoT terminals, requiring seamless Wi-Fi coverage

AR, VR, MR, and other immersive applications require Wi-Fi networks with high bandwidth and ultra-low latency

The application of autonomous decision-making robots relies on Wi-Fi networks with zero packet loss and 100% stability

  • Ultra-high bandwidth
  • Ultra-high concurrency
  • Ultra-low latency
Ultra-high bandwidth

4K ultra-HD video conferencing anytime, anywhere

Each participant in a 4K video conference needs 40 Mbit/s of bandwidth. The 1,024-QAM Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) delivers a stable, ultra-HD video experience to more than a dozen locations.

Ultra-high concurrency

Support for manufacturing and fast, seamless roaming

Connecting hundreds of terminals per time slice with overlapping coordination that multiplies the connections to many thousands, Wi-Fi 6 is ideal for enterprises that need stable connections to lots of locations. In particular, manufacturing enterprises benefit from the industry-standard technologies used by Wi-Fi 6 to ensure high concurrent capacity, transmission efficiency, and continuous operation

Ultra-low latency

10 ms latency for quick VR response

For Virtual Reality (VR) to seem real, it needs to respond really fast. The new Wi-Fi 6 transmission protocol, with OFDMA technology, reduces the latency by 60 percent compared to Wi-Fi 5 and ensures an immersive VR experience for every user.

Compared with Wi-Fi 5, Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) achieves 4-fold increases in both network bandwidth and user concurrency. Meanwhile, Huawei AirEngine Wi-Fi 6 products support 5G-powered antenna and algorithm technologies to reduce the network latency from 30 ms to 10 ms. This allows smooth VR/AR teaching without user dizziness, wireless 4K HD conferences, and zero packet loss during the AGV roaming, accelerating the digital transformation of enterprises in various sectors.

With Wi-Fi 6 set for widespread application,
how can you get ahead of your competitors in the intelligent digital transformation era?

Why Huawei Wi-Fi 6?

With Huawei 5G-powered unique antenna and algorithm technologies, Huawei AirEngine Wi-Fi 6 series products help enterprises build Wi-Fi 6 networks without coverage holes, provide services with no waiting time, and achieve no packet loss during roaming. This allows various sectors, including digital education, digital airport, omni-channel finance, smart healthcare, smart government, and smart manufacturing, to move toward a fully connected, intelligent world.


5G-powered smart antenna enables Wi-Fi coverage with zero coverage holes

  • Massive connectivity: 1024 STAs per AP, four times that of Wi-Fi 5

  • Connectivity of everything: Flexible USB slot design for IoT modules enables Bluetooth, ZigBee, and RFID to be integrated into one network, reducing deployment costs

  • Connectivity anywhere: Second-generation smart antennas powered by 5G enable wireless signals to follow users and increase STA signal strength by 5 dB, coverage distance by 20%, and network-wide coverage by 40%.

Exclusive AirFlex 4-element, dual-polarization, and co-planar antennas, making signals more concentrated and increasing the coverage distance by 20%


5G network slicing ensures real-time services with zero waiting time

  • Gigabit-level wireless experience: 1 Gbit/s bandwidth for each user

  • Lowest latency in the industry: Dynamic Turbo, originating from 5G network slicing technology, ensures good user- and application-specific experience.

Fast service identification based on DFI: Supports hardware acceleration to identify application models based on data flows, which is more than two times faster than the industry standard DPI.

VR experience assurance: Uses the VR Turbo acceleration engine that identifies VR applications, ensures 100 Mbit/s bandwidth for each user, and reduces the latency by 50% compared with standard Wi-Fi 6, from 20 ms to 10ms , ensuring that users do not experience dizziness.


5G-powered roaming technology ensures zero packet loss of key services during roaming

Lossless roaming: Uses 5G-powered technology and ensures zero packet loss during STA roaming, supporting 50 factory AGVs per 1000 m 2 (Wi-Fi 6 typically supports 30 AGVs per 1000 m 2 ).

First Wi-Fi 6 Commercial Deployment

Huawei is the first vendor to release Wi-Fi 6 products and put them into commercial use. To date, Huawei AirEngine Wi-Fi 6 APs have been deployed in five regions around the world.
