3. What Kind of Benefits Does Wi-Fi 6 Bring?
Older devices should work fine on Wi-Fi 6 networks, but without new clients, there’s little advantage. The biggest jump will be in high-density spaces; these features require clients and APs to be Wi-Fi 6. As long as you have old hardware on the airwaves, you’ll see limited or no benefits.
4. What Solutions Support Wi-Fi 6?
A full Wi-Fi 6 deployment means updating network infrastructure, APs and clients, so take a gradual upgrade path. Make sure anything added to a network can support Wi-Fi 6, then find ways to allow faster AP-to-network speeds later.
5. Does Wi-Fi 6 Work with 5G?
Wi-Fi 6, with higher speed and density, extends the usefulness of Wi-Fi as a faster and cheaper alternative to cellular data, even the superhigh speeds proposed for 5G networks. Users will get a better experience with properly engineered and deployed Wi-Fi 6 than 5G. But the two are complementary, with Wi-Fi ideal indoors and 5G outdoors.
