What is Wi-Fi 6?
Wi-Fi 6 uses the latest generation of IEEE wireless LAN standards, 802.11ax.
The Wi-Fi Alliance calls the new standard Wi-Fi 6 for easy reference (Wi-Fi
5 is 802.11ac). This means the Wi-Fi 6 technologies are standard and interoperate easily
with previous Wi-Fi versions.
“Wi-Fi 6 is essential for transforming the way we support applications
on today’s Wi-Fi networks. Its deployment allows a new and improved user experience in
dense deployment scenarios compared to that of previous Wi-Fi generations”
— Dr. Osama Aboul-Magd
As chairman of the 802.11ax standard working group, Huawei’s Dr. Osama
Aboul-Magd was instrumental in developing the new Wi-Fi 6 standard.
