Want to find out what the Wi-Fi 6 upgrade means? Just keep reading on below.
What is Wi-Fi 6?
Wi-Fi 6 is the newest Wi-Fi software version released from the Wi-Fi Alliance. When you upgrade, your new router and other devices will now say “Wi-Fi 6” on them, instead of the previous iteration, “Wi-Fi 5.”
Also known as 802.11 ax, Wi-Fi 6 provides top-notch data transfer speeds for any smart devices you have connected to it. In fact, if you use your router with a single device, maximum speeds could be 40% higher with Wi-Fi 6 than they were with Wi-Fi 5.
With its stronger data encoding, Wi-Fi 6 can take on more work and will deliver faster throughput. You’ll have quicker and more efficient loading times even while your home and network are packed with people and users.
Extended Battery Life
A new feature for Wi-Fi 6 is the “Target Wake Time” or the TWT. This feature will give your smart devices, like your smartphone, tablets, laptop, and other devices supported by Wi-Fi longer battery lives.
When a Wi-Fi access point communicates with a device, it can tell the device when to have its Wi-Fi radio go to sleep and when it will need to wake back up again in order to receive transmissions and messages. By staying in sleep mode longer and conserving energy, your devices will save their battery lives.
Four Times Better in Busy Areas
Do you live in a full and busy house or are you hosting a dinner party soon? If you have lots of people using smart TVs, laptops, smartphones, and other IoT devices all throughout your property and on your network, it can start to get crowded; your Wi-Fi network must work harder to accommodate the traffic.
But you won’t have to worry about that with Wi-Fi 6. This new upgrade will improve a user’s average throughput by at least four times and in the most crowded of areas. Congestion won’t be a problem even when your home is brimming over with life.
When you have Wi-Fi 6 routers and access points, as well as Wi-Fi 6 certified devices, you are optimizing your smart home to run smoothly and effectively at all times during the day.
While Wi-Fi 6 is currently available, it will still take a bit of time to see its logo and presence everywhere. But you can get started now by bringing in your new router and upgrading it with the latest software! Our team of professionals at Phoenix Audio Video is here to help you every step of the way.
