ABI Research, known for its research in the technology sector, recently published the results of a study on Wi-Fi. According to the research, more than half of the Wi-Fi devices that will be sold in 2024 will support the Wi-Fi 6 standard and offer a variety of possibilities for mobile and broadband providers.
Earlier this year, the Wi-Fi Alliance decided to go for a more user-friendly and modern nomenclature rather than a traditional nomenclature, such as “Wi-Fi 802.11ac”. This means that the next generation “Wi-Fi 802.11ax” will be called Wi-Fi 6.
The only innovation is not only naming. Wi-Fi 6 offers faster, higher capacity and improved performance. This also applies to more compact and dense areas. Wi-Fi 6 devices also support speeds of up to 10 Gbps.
Development of Wi-Fi 6:
Wi-Fi 6 will help broadband providers deliver services such as speed increase and complexity reduction on home internet. There is also an extra benefit of being used in smart homes. According to ABI Research data, sales of wireless consumer equipment are expected to reach 254 million, due to the need for high internet speeds and low latency. The data also shows that more than half of these will come with Wi-Fi 6 support.
Khin Sandi Lynn, an analyst at ABI Research, said: birçok Many applications, including video streaming, gaming, and smart home applications, are being actively used by home broadband users on multiple devices at the same time. Since fast broadband service is already available to many broadband users, consumers are increasingly demanding Wi-Fi coverage for the entire home with fast, reliable, high throughput. Equipment manufacturers and telecom operators believe that Wi-Fi 6 will be a complementary technology for 5G and will help create unified network services.
Wi-Fi 6 allows seamless traffic between networks. In this way, the end-user can benefit from a superior experience and a better connection. Research shows that more than half of the Wi-Fi devices will be supported by Wi-Fi 6 in 2024, which makes it possible to make future forecasts in this area.
