This trend will continue in the coming years with New smart TVs and IoT devices are coming out every day. There is a basic connector for everything to function according to user experience expectations: Wi-Fi. A modern home will depend more and more on the stability and speed of its network.
Al-Qaeda Wifi 6 (IEEE 802.11ax) makes file Wireless home networks take several steps With performance improvement features.
The standard and the devices that support it were explicitly created for Deliver reliable and stable 4K and even 8K streaming.
a Traditional Wi-Fi is flooded with hundreds of devicesIt tries to connect to the system.
as a result of, If the access point is busy fulfill many requests, Speed may drop Significantly.
Wifi 6 It uses Multiuser-MIMO technology, where Two devices can be connected at the same time on the same frequency.
The Wi-Fi 6 creates a turning point in technology By allowing a communication channel to be assigned dynamically to each device.
This allows More simultaneous connections per RF channel It improves communication efficiency while reducing latency.
Less power, more connectivity
The Smart home devices such as smartphones, sensors and camerasOperated by batteries. However, when these units are down Looking for connections, batteries run out quickly.
Wi-Fi 6 has the intelligence to coordinate with devices, Telling them exactly when to turn on their radio and when not to, which now allows them to have longer downtime. In this way, the life of the smartphone increases from each charge, for example.
