WiFi 6 and Beyond: What’s Now and What’s Next

Killer app alert! The newly published IEEE 802.11ax Enhancements for High Efficiency WLAN Standard has far reaching implications with respect to cabling infrastructure design. Users can reasonably expect their current wireless speeds to more than quadruple when upgrading to Wi-Fi 6E gear available today. As a result, the specification of high-performance cabling supporting access layer switches and uplink connections will be critical to achieving multi-Gigabit throughout and fully supporting the capacity of next generation wireless access points.

This engaging webinar will answer all questions concerning Wi-Fi 6E and developing Wi-Fi 7 technology trends, cabling considerations, and capabilities. Applicable standards terminology and updates will be clearly presented using non-technical language.
