Enjoy more of the latest tech like virtual reality without any stutter,
vivid 4K and 8k video streaming, and faster file downloads.
Wi-Fi 6 works by using 1024-QAM to provide a signal that packs in a lot more data, and a 160MHz for a wider channel, that results in a lot faster Wi-Fi with unprecedented efficiency.
Boost to 1024-QAM
Each symbol carries 10 bits rather than 8 bits compared to 802.11ac
256-QAM, improving speeds by 25%.
Wider channel width
Doubles the channel width to 160Mhz to deliver faster wireless speeds.
Increase your network capacity by up to 4x by using Wi-Fi 6, which uses 8x8 uplink/downlink, MU-MIMO, OFDMA, and BSS Colouring to handle more devices on the network with incredible efficiency. Now you can add more devices to your smart home with a network you can rely on to handle all your devices and many more.
OIder Wi-Fi standards used SU-MIMO (Single User Multiple-Input Multiple-Output), which could only download and allow communication
with multiple devices in consecutive order, or one at a time.
Now Wi-Fi 6 with 8x8 MU-MIMO transmits to multiple devices simultaneously via multiple antennas using different wireless signals (2.4GHz & 5GHz spatial streams)
and allows both downloads and uploads for dramatically improved bandwidth efficiency.
An OFDM symbol transmits data, and Wi-Fi 6 introduces 4x longer OFDM symbols. Wi-Fi 6’s longer OFDM symbol divides the data into sub carriers, providing much more stability and allowing more data to be transmitted within the same space.
A long OFDM symbol also increases range so your Wi-Fi signal can reach further, especially outdoor.
Target Wake Time (TWT) allows devices to negotiate when and how often they will wake up to send or receive data, increasing device sleep time, improving battery life for mobile and IoT devices.
Built-in Power Amplifiers and beamforming extend the reach of your network – from the bedroom, all the way to the garden, without dropouts. Your Wi-Fi 6 network also automatically ignores surrounding neighbourhood Wi-Fi signals, enabling your devices to receive data only from your network for greater accuracy.
