Wi-Fi 6 Highlights
- Wi-Fi 6 delivers up to four times better performance than Wi-Fi 5 (802.11ac) using technologies such as Orthogonal Frequency-Division Multiple-Access (OFDMA) to help maximize the capability to connect multiple devices at the same time
- Wi-Fi 6 will provide a huge boost in total network capacity and reliability, ushering in a new era of speed, performance and capacity for wireless networking in today’s homes.
- The actual quality of the connection for each Wi-Fi device will also be improved by reducing the interference between them, thus ensuring that the experience of lag or buffering is reduced during online gameplay or streaming Ultra HD 8K/4K.
