JAKARTA – As a leader in 5G technology, Huawei is the first company to launch commercial Wi-Fi 6. Huawei provides detailed guidelines for adapting Wi-Fi 6 for all campus network scenarios to meet the challenges of very high bandwidth (Ultra 4K video) HD, concurrency is very high, and latency is very low (up to 10 ms for fast-response services).
With the advent of Wi-Fi 6, all the technological components are changing drastically and without limits. High throughput is required to apply high quality video services and IoT development. Wifi 6 opens the door to new business models such as Ultra HD Video, Virtual Reality (VR), Augmented Reality (AR), and the Internet of Things (IoT), etc. The company will need to consider different aspects of Wi-Fi 6 development later on ,
What changes need to be prepared?
The corporate wireless network is currently facing several challenges, including low quality, complicated operation and maintenance, and vulnerable security. The previous Wi-Fi generation faced challenges such as low connectivity in crowded areas, poor performance, and Internet of Things (IoT) even in modern times.
Imagine everyone in an open stadium or in a public place simultaneously sending information or connecting to WeChat or Facebook. The old Wi-Fi standard can not handle large amounts of data, making the entire network slower. However, speed is not an obstacle – because Huawei has solved problems with the previous gigabit technology. The obstacle is the density and number of users who want to connect at the same time.
Applications like AR / VR require reliability, planning, low latency and high bandwidth. Key applications require building new connections with end-to-end clients to ensure constant connectivity and zero packet loss. Given the potential benefits, these newer applications require Wi-Fi 6, and Wi-Fi 6 offers advantages that far outweigh the cost of backward compatibility.
“WiFi 6 is basically a super-fast WiFi generation,” said the IEEE Chair for 802.11ax Technology, Osama Aboul-Maid. He said WiFi increases the user experience four times. The standard WiFi technology only allows a maximum of 60 simultaneous sessions.
Key Benefits of WiFi 6
In addition to the expected increase in bandwidth, the main benefit of WiFi 6 is the reduction in network congestion. At present, multiple clients can be serviced simultaneously by the network because each channel is divided into smaller subchannels, referred to as resource units. Some clients can therefore send and receive data at the same time.
Features such as orthogonal frequency division multiple access (OFDMA) technology allow Wi-Fi 6 to increase the frequency resource utilization 30x. Traditional operation and maintenance of the network make the process more prone to error. Thanks to Wi-Fi 6, network automation should not only lower costs but also improve visibility, detect automatic problems and prevent network problems. The TWA (Target Wake Time) feature allows the access point to schedule clients and remind them when to wake up and sleep.
How will the trend develop over the period 2019-2023?
Starting in 2019, various chips, mobile phones and devices will be used for Wi-Fi 6. Wi-Fi 6 will become a reality in 2019, and the industry will begin using commercial requirements based on Wi-Fi 6.
– Applications that require a large bandwidth, such as: AR, VR and 4K video, will be the main reasons for the introduction of Wi-Fi 6 in 2019.
– Enterprise-level Wi-Fi 6 access points contribute at least 10 percent of the market share of the access point. According to DellOro Group, there are access points in the area. Those that comply with the IEEE 802.11ax standard will have more than 4 million units in 2019.
– The Wi-Fi 6 chip supports the following antenna modes: 1×1, 2×2, 4×4 and 8×8; The wireless access point supports the antenna modes 2×2, 4×4 and 8×8 (5 GHz). Mobile phones, laptops, and Internet of Things (IoT) devices support the 1×1 and 2×2 (2.4 GHz and 5 GHz) antenna modes.
– In 2023, an estimated 802.11ax enterprise-level access point will reach 30 million units.
Wi-Fi 6 will increase the use of IoT
Wi-Fi, especially Wi-Fi 6, will be a fundamental component of the infrastructure that supports digital transformationd increases the productivity of the company. The more things that connect, the more important Wi-Fi 6 becomes in the IoT (Internet of Things) network.
To meet the technical requirements of IoT technology, device manufacturers design access points that support IoT capabilities with integrated or external Bluetooth modules. This integration between Access Point and IoT will drive further applications such as ESL (Electronic Shelf Labels), Asset Management and Smart Health Care. Low latency in some scenarios, eg. Eg FTS (Automatic Guided Vehicle) in Smart Warehouse; AR and VR; Education; and the healthcare industry will accelerate the growth of Wi-Fi 6.
Who should use Wi-Fi 6 and why should it be now?
Research by the Wi-Fi Alliance 2018 concludes that Wi-Fi has a major impact on the economy. These include various indicators:
1) Development of alternative technologies as additional solutions for consumers.
2) Creating a business model Innovative for unique services.
3) Extend the communications services for wired and wireless networks.
4) Complete the cable and wireless technology to increase the effectiveness. The study also states that Wi-Fi will exceed the global economic value of $ 3.47 trillion in 2023.
It’s no longer a question of whether, but when, organizations start migrating to Wi-Fi technology 6. If you need resilience and business application assurance is now a good time to consider Wi-Fi 6 as part of a long-term strategy for an efficient and productive business.
