802.11ax is the emerging Wi-Fi standard that will displace 802.11ac with higher throughput and overcoming poor performance in crowded environments. Our articles cover everything you need to know about the standard and supporting products.
As the ratification and release of 802.11ax network products looms ever closer, more and more information is coming out about the next jump in Wi-Fi technology, which will no doubt lead to many questions about how this effects business wireless use.
There's a new Wi-Fi standard announced around every five years, starting with the 802.11 in 1997, 802.11a in 1999, 802.11g in 2003, 802.11n in 2009 followed by the current former standard 802.11ac first which was first standardised in 2013 with a reversion in 2015.
It doesn’t seem too long ago that the new 802.11ac wave 2 was released, and everybody was getting to grips with data rates of over a Gigabit per second and the idea of Multiple User-MIMO, the next ground breaking technological leap, and how this was all going to revolutionise Wi-Fi.
