Saw a well made video on this new version of Wifi 6

It looks to be revolutionary in the way it operates.

Could be quite a game changer for the wifi industry and it is backwards compatible to other devices which is a win.

Apparently Samsung's s10 has it built in as well, which is a good sign as tend to know what's the future.

Thoughts?

Yawn.

 

Yes there are lots of great things about WiFi6 (colored BSS being a very cool feature) but many of the benefits will not occur unless you're running a network that's 100% .AX capable hardware. I've had to already sit thrugh a few vendor presentations in the last year or so.

 

There is already .AX hardware on the market, but some (such as Aerohive) is pre standard at present.

 

There are some great benefits and features, but much like 5G the hype isn't going to match the real world reality for some time.
