Everything You Need To about Wifi-6.

What is Wi-Fi 6?

Wi-Fi 6 is the updated generation of Wi-Fi. it is the successor of Wi-Fi 5. It’ll still do the same basic thing “connect you to the internet” just with a bunch of additional technologies to make that happen more efficiently, speeding up connections in the process .

HOW FAST IS WIFI 6?


You can get a speed limit of 9.6 GBPS and That’s up from 3.5 Gbps on Wi-Fi 5 These all are theoretical but when it comes to real-life no house needs such speeds .Even if you could reach those speeds, it’s not clear that you’d need them .But the fact that Wi-Fi 6 has a much higher theoretical speed limit than its predecessor is still important. That 9.6 Gbps doesn’t have to go to a single computer. It can be split up across a whole network of devices. That means more potential speed for each device .

DEVICE MANAGEMENT

Have you ever noticed your Wi-Fi speed decrease dramatically when everyone in your house is using it? Well, that’s because Wi-Fi 5 or Wi-Fi AC connects to only one device at a time. Well, the good news is this problem is sorted in Wi-Fi 6. Wi-Fi 6 can connect to multiple devices simultaneously. Be it playing games or streaming NetFlix Wi-Fi 6 has you covered. Wi-Fi 6 introduces some new technologies to help mitigate the issues that come with putting dozens of Wi-Fi devices on a single network. It lets routers communicate with more devices at once, lets routers send data to multiple devices in the same broadcast, and lets Wi-Fi devices schedule check-ins with the router. Together, those features should keep connections strong even as more and more devices start demanding data .

WHAT MAKES WIFI 6 FASTER?

There are two key technologies speeding up Wi-Fi 6 connections: MU-MIMO and OFDMA
1. It packs more data with 1024-QAM QAM stands for “quadrature amplitude modulation” so the 1024 QAM packs 10 bits of data where the previous generation gives you only 8 bits of data. increasing speed by 25% have made it easy for people to Netflix and chill!
2. Efficient MU-MIMO
In this era of 2020, we have devices from smartwatches to smart speakers that need Wi-Fi all time to work. Mu Mimo is in use from the older generations of Wi-Fi but it has been more efficient. Mu-Mimo stands for “multiple users multiple inputs multiple outputs”.in the past Wi-Fi was given to one device, where the other device has to wait for Wi-Fi. but now its different Wi-Fi 6 can connect to 8 devices at once
3. Range with OFDM
OFDM stands for orthogonal frequency division multiplexing
With the new Wi-Fi 6, the Wi-Fi subcarriers are quadrupled resulting in a greater range.
In practice, this is all used to get more out of every transmission that carries a Wi-Fi signal from a router to your device.

BETTER BATTERY LIFE WITH WIFI 6?

This is all possible because of a feature called Target Wake Time, which lets routers schedule check-in times with devices.      

It isn’t going to be helpful across the board, though. Your laptop needs constant internet access, so it’s unlikely to make heavy use of this feature (except, perhaps, when it moves into a sleep state).
schedule a check-in time with the routers so that they don’t have to keep their antennas powered on and
hence resulting in a better battery life !

HOW DO I GET WI-FI 6 ?

Wi-Fi generations rely on new hardware, not just software updates, so you’ll need to buy new phones, laptops, and so on to get the new version of Wi-Fi.
To be clear: this is not something you’ll want to run out to the store and buy a new laptop just to get. It’s not that game-changing of an update for any one device.
Instead, new devices will start coming with Wi-Fi 6 by default. As you replace your phone, laptop, and game consoles over the next five years, you’ll bring home new ones that include the latest version of Wi-Fi.
There is one thing you will have to make a point of going out and buying, though: a new router. If your router doesn’t support Wi-Fi 6, you won’t see any benefits, no matter how many Wi-Fi 6 devices you bring home. (You could actually see a benefit, though, connecting Wi-Fi 5 gadgets to a Wi-Fi 6 router, because the router may be capable of communicating with more devices at once.)

Wi-Fi 6 will start arriving on high-end phones this year, though. Qualcomm’s latest flagship processor, the Snapdragon 855, includes support for Wi-Fi 6, and it’s destined for the next wave of top-of-the-line phones. The Snapdragon 855’s inclusion doesn’t guarantee that a phone will have Wi-Fi 6, but it’s a good sign: Samsung’s Galaxy S10 is one of the first phones with the new processor, and it supports the newest generation of Wi-Fi.

Yeah this is Wi-Fi 6 !
