WiFi 6 provides speeds 1.4× faster than WiFi 5, greatly elevating your wireless experiences. Thanks to WiFi 6, enjoy immersion when watching Netflix at home and live streaming Twitch from your computer.
|PHY||Number of data subcarriers||Coding rate||Bits/symbol||Timer per OFDM symbol (0.4μs Gl)||1SS||4SS||8SS|
|802.11ac||234 (80 MHz)||x 5/6||x log2(256)||÷ 3.6μs||= 433.3 Mbps||1.74 Gbps||NA|
|802.11ax||1960 (160 MHz)||x 5/6||x log2(1024)||÷ 13.6μs||= 1.2 Gbps||4.8 Gbps||9.6 Gbps|
4× More Connection Capacity
WiFi 6 allow 4× more simultaneous connections to your router than WiFi 5, conquering all the challenges caused by too many devices connected.
With WiFi 6, enjoy flawless 4K/8K videos, play massive online games without lag, participate in efficient online meetings, and live stream everything from your home computer.
What is WiFi 6?
The newest WiFi solution, WiFi 6, also known as 802.11ax WiFi or AX WiFi, was built as a solution to the crushing network demands and the growing numbers of devices in the world.
WiFi 6 builds up a reliable network that allow all kinds of devices to connect simultaneously and run smoothly. If you own VR gadgets, numerous smart home devices, or simply have a large number of devices in your home, WiFi 6 products can be the ideal option for you.
Armed with advanced technology, WiFi 6 provides 1.4× faster speeds, 4× more capacity, broader coverage, less interference, and more power saving than WiFi 5. Read on and discover how WiFi 6 makes a difference.
How does WiFi 6 work?
256 to 1024 is a massive leap in wireless technology. Each symbol holds 10 bits rather than 8 bits thanks to 1024-QAM technology. Accordingly, raw speeds are up to 25% faster than 802.11ac 256-QAM.
160 MHz Channel Width
Double Width, Double Speed
WiFi 6 doubles the channel width to 160 MHz compared to WiFi 5, significantly reducing the time it takes for your devices to connect to the router.
With WiFi 6, enjoy 8K movies, massive file downloads and uploads, and responsive smart home devices – all without buffering.
Higher Efficiency, Less Latency
Your router's effectiveness is substantially increased with OFDMA technology. Imagine your WiFi signals as trucks that deliver packets of data to your devices. With 802.11ac OFDM, each delivery truck can only send one parcel at a time to one location. However, OFDMA allows one packet to hold multiple parcels and send them to numerous devices at once, dramatically improving network efficiency and lowering latency.
More Devices Connected Simultaneously
MU-MIMO enables a router to send and receive data from numerous devices at once. In WiFi 5, MU-MIMO has a certain limitation that it only works in downlink connections, lengthening the buffering time of devices.
With WiFi 6 MU-MIMO, more than 8 streams are available to pick from when downloading and uploading data, guaranteeing stable connections and smooth experiences for your family whether they are streaming, downloading, or playing MMO’s.
4× Longer OFDM Symbol
Increased Coverage and Speed
OFDM is a symbol that transmits data. For increased reliability and broader coverage, it distributes its data across smaller subcarriers. WiFi 6 use an OFDM symbol that is 4× longer to create 4× more subcarriers, providing broader coverage and 11% higher speeds.
Enjoy full and lag-free WiFi coverage and get ultra-fast connections for all of your smart home, mobile, gaming, and desktop devices while moving from your garage to the second floor.
|Number of Data Subcarriers||234||980|
|Symbol Duration(μs)||3.6 (3.2 symbol + 0.4Gl)||13.6(12.8 symbol + 0.8Gl)|
|Valid Data Subcarriers Rate||65||72.05882|
Minimizes WiFi Interference with Your Neighbor
Your wireless signal may suffer from interference from nearby wireless networks, especially if you live in a densely populated apartment or close to your neighbors. BSS (Base Service Station) Color, as an identifier, differentiates and marks each frame from your surrounding networks and instructs your routers to ignore them, improving the efficiency of your router.
Target Wake Time (TWT)
Less Power Consumption
With Target Wake Time (TWT), your devices negotiate intelligently when and how often they will wake up and send or receive data, increasing sleep time and saving the power and battery life of your mobile and loT devices.
