Improve Your Home’s Wireless Network with Wi-Fi 6
Next-Generation Technology Improves the Speed and Performance of Your Devices
Your home wireless network connects all of your devices into a cohesive web of communication. The stronger and faster the network, the better your devices communicate. You can boost the performance of your River Oaks, TX smart home and all of its devices with next-generation Wi-Fi 6 technology.
What exactly is Wi-Fi 6? To make the next-generation 802.11ax standard easier to remember and understand, the Wi-Fi Alliance decided to rename it to Wi-Fi 6. Wi-Fi 6 succeeds 802.11ac, now known as Wi-Fi 5, the most commonly used standard used in wireless networks.
So how can Wi-Fi 6 help your home wireless network? Keep reading to find out.
A New Standard
The new Wi-Fi 6 standard operates over 2.4GHz and 5 GHz, whereas Wi-Fi 5 is 5GHz only. The shining achievement of Wi-Fi 6, though, is its ability to perform better in environments with several devices. That means your smart home and all of its devices—from smart lighting to voice control—will work faster and with less impediment. Connections will be quicker, and there will be less interference from other devices on the wireless network.
To keep up to pace with all of the connections in your home, Wi-Fi 6 utilizes the OFDMA (Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiple Access) technology. That means your family can use the same home wireless network more efficiently, with lower latency and a responsive connection. When viewing your security camera footage, you will experience less lag time, your connected home will respond more quickly, and even wearable devices like your Apple Watch or Fitbit can be more efficient.
The split 2.4GHz and 5GHz spectrum create additional routes for communication in your home’s wireless network. Packets sent over the network contain more data, and your network can handle different data streams all at the same time. This is great for when you’re streaming 4K services in your home theater while your kids are streaming high-quality audio outside by the pool. With the boosted performance of next-generation technology on your River Oaks property, you won’t experience the overall network slow-down you may currently experience at peak times of device use with Wi-Fi 5.
