WiFi standards evolve regularly, approximately every 4 years, where the frequency, range, and speed of the WiFi service is improved. With strange names like 802.11n or 802.11ac, it is no surprise that changes to the WiFi standards didn’t go noticed by the general user in the past. Now that the standard name is more digestible (WiFi 1, WiFi 2, ...WiFi 6), WiFi all of a sudden becomes a really good way to enhance your offer.
WiFi 6 (or 802.11ax) was certified in 2019. It is the latest certified standard that offers, not surprisingly, better bandwidth than WiFi 5:
So, if you are thinking of deploying a brand new WiFi network for your site, there is a good chance that you will want to learn about the WiFi 6 infrastructure, as it will certainly be the best product on the market. However, each problem has its own solution so it will be up to your current operator to advise if your property is suited for the new WiFi 6 standard!
As with many decisions, it's a question of balance, with several considerations to take into account:
I also want to point out that the issues with quality are not so much with the WiFi standards as they are with the level of expertise during implementation, configuration and supervision of the network. This approach allows us to pollute less while offering our customers a high performance multi-service WiFi in line with their needs and budget.
You might also want to wait for the next standards already in the pipeline before investing. WiFi 6E will be available as soon as the 6GHz frequency band is released by European countries. Waiting for WiFi 6E is, for example, the choice made by several WiFi box providers!
Plus, WiFi 7 is already on the horizon for 2024...
