Learn how Wi-Fi 6, 6E transform experiences through an increase in speed, range and a drastic reduction in latency and power consumption.

Take advantage of Wi-Fi 6, 6E

Over the past 20 years Wi-Fi® has evolved from 2 Mbps to gigabit speeds, a 1000-fold increase in throughput. The standard has advanced through the introduction of new technologies with Wi-Fi 4, Wi-Fi 5 and, most recently, Wi-Fi 6 and 6E. During this evolution, the Wi-Fi Alliance has maintained impressive backwards compatibility so products work with a wide variety of routers installed in people’s homes, and this has been a key driver for the stability and growth of Wi-Fi as the cornerstone of the Internet of Things (IoT). 

As the standards evolve, the process of choosing the right Wi-Fi version for IoT products continues to require careful consideration. While adding Wi-Fi 6 to a smartphone may be an easy decision, the considerations in IoT products are often different with an intense focus on reliability, range/congestion, adoption of the new standard in Wi-Fi routers, cost, security, and power consumption. As a product manager, you have to decide for each new product, which version of Wi-Fi should I use? When should I use Wi-Fi 4, 5, or 6? When is the right time to update my products?
