YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT
802.11ax allows more efficient Wi-Fi networks.
802.11ax provides a reliable high-speed connection, especially in dense, multiuser environments such as stadiums and airports.
It's coming to your mobile device soon.
Wireless standards are always evolving. Your current access point likely uses 802.11ac technology, but 802.11ax-or high-efficiency Wi-Fi (HEW)-is right around the corner.
802.11ax isn’t confined to four walls and a roof.
Wi-Fi isn’t just for your home or office anymore; we use it almost everywhere. 802.11ax better serves devices in outdoor environments through longer symbol periods and narrower subcarrier spacing.
Higher data rates demand enhanced RF performance.
With new standards come new challenges. The addition of 1024-QAM means 802.11ax will require higher performing RF front ends, better measurement science, and more capable test equipment.
New technology for multiple access.
802.11ax is borrowing a trick from 4G mobile networks. By implementing OFDMA technology in both downlink and uplink, the protocol can serve more data to more users in both directions.
We're here to help.
