WiFi 6 Workshop
Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) is the sixth generation of Wi-Fi. Wi-Fi 6 and Wi-Fi 6E are the trade names for the latest generation of Wi-Fi, according to the new 802.11ax standard. This new generation has been designed to make use of a much more optimized spectrum through the adoption of Orthogonal Frequency-Divison Multiple Access (OFDMA) and Multiple-Input and Multiple-Output (MIMO) technologies, new power control methods to avoid interferences and reduce consumption, and advanced safety protocols. Wi-Fi 6 will be able to operate in the existing 2.4 and 5 GHz bands and in the new 6 GHz band from 5.925 to 7.125 GHz. This new extended operation in the 6 Hz band is known as Wi-Fi 6E.
For mobile users, IoT devices, and latency-sensitive applications, Wi-Fi CERTIFIED 6™ (Wi-Fi 6) brings higher capacity, efficiency, and performance to enterprises, distributed branches, and small businesses. The standard also includes Wi-Fi 6E, so as to support client connectivity in the 6GHz band.
This course will cover important topics for WLAN professionals who have recently purchased WiFi6 access points/clients or are preparing to migrate to WiFi6 802.11ax when they refresh their WLAN technologies.
As both 5G and Wi-Fi 6 have very unique characteristics and benefits that can significantly impact users’ internet connectivity experience, this course will provide an in-depth analysis and comparison of these two technologies, including their features, benefits, and limitations.
The course is intended for technical and non-technical professionals who wish to have a good understanding of the fast-growing wireless LAN market, as well as for application developers and professionals who wish to have sound background for planning and implementing wireless networks and wireless networking technology.
- Engineers, technicians, managers
- Marketing, sales and R&D staff members for manufacturers/vendors of LAN equipment
- LAN users looking for alternatives to the “classical” LAN implementation
- Data communications consultants and system integrators
