Maximizing WiFi 6E: How to embrace the 6 GHz spectrum—and the future—now

Discover how CSPs can intelligently manage the complexity of WiFi 6E and start offering new services that take advantage of the 6 GHz band availability

WiFi 6E is expected to be a game-changer for consumers and enterprises alike. Extending the efficiency features from WiFi 6 like OFDMA, WPA 3, and target wake time to the new ultrawide 6 GHz band, the market will certainly see exciting developments in products and services that rely on bandwidth-intense connectivity.

The primary use cases that WiFi 6E will support include:

Broader adoption of IoT

both by consumers and enterprises.

Multigigabit video streaming

such as 4K and 8K video.

New generations of augmented reality

and virtual reality technology.

However, reaping the full benefits of WiFi 6E depends on getting it right from the start. While WiFi 6 access points (APs) require more optimization than previous WiFi generations, WiFi 6E APs need even more sophisticated management to avoid interference and ensure 6 GHz-capable customers are connecting on the 6 GHz band. Between topology management and steering, a lot can (and will) go wrong.

Read our new whitepaper to find out how CSPs can manage the complexity of WiFi 6E in today’s congested home networks, transition to a centralized system that enables intelligent network management and optimization, and start delivering cloud-based services that take advantage of the 6 GHz spectrum.
