Wi-Fi 6 boosts data transfer speed by 40%
An extensive field test conducted on a range of the first 6G Wi-Fi devices reveals that this generation of devices increases the speed of transfer, exchange and download information by 40% than the maximum speed achieved by the current devices running the fifth generation of «Wi-Fi» During experiments,
An extensive field test conducted on a range of the first 6G Wi-Fi devices reveals that this generation of devices increases the speed of transfer, exchange and download information by 40% than the maximum speed achieved by the current devices running the fifth generation of «Wi-Fi» .
During the experiments, 22 movies of 1.5 terabytes of movies were downloaded from the Internet on a storage unit in just three hours and 45 minutes.
The test was carried out by analysts at CNNet, a technology specialist, on a range of Wi-Fi routers, the sixth-generation Wi-Fi, from Knight Hawk AX12 by Netgear. Works at speeds up to 1.2 Gbps on a 2.4 GHz frequency band, and up to 4.8 Gbps on a 5 GHz frequency band.
Each of these routers is connected to a high-speed Internet connection via fiber-optic cables, and then connects the routers to Apple's MacBook computers via Ethernet cables to act as servers in this test. And then use a sixth-generation WiFi adapter compatible with Keller Wi-Fi 6, priced at $ 35 on Amazon, and put it on other MacBook computers to act as a Wi-Fi receiver. 6 »transmitted by routers.
In the past, different generations of Wi-Fi have the same names as their wireless protocol protocols, and are endorsed and endorsed by relevant international bodies, such as the I3E, the Association of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, and the Wi-Fi Alliance. “It seemed difficult and incomprehensible for ordinary non-specialist users, so different standards or wireless protocols were renamed to successive generations, as in mobile networks that moved from first generation to the fifth generation of mobile, so the name of the generation was launched. Wi-Fi 4 on the 802.11N protocol in 2009, the fifth generation Wi-Fi 5 on the 2014 802.11 AC protocol and the sixth generation Wi-Fi 6 on the protocol 802.11 AX »released in 2018.
The current generation Wi-Fi 5 offers speeds of up to 1,300 Mbps over a five-GHz band, which is 600 times faster than the first generation Wi-Fi that was available in 1997. Wi-Fi 6 provides data transfer rate of 1.1 Gbit / s over 2.4 GHz band and up to 4.8 Gbit / s over five GHz band, but some estimates by industry experts, such as Huawei, say the maximum speed of Wi-Fi 6 will reach 9.6 Gbit / s.
Analysts confirmed that the results were achieved after building a "friendly environment" for the sixth generation of «Wi-Fi», from fast connections, compatible adapters, and devices equipped with chipsets «Wi-Fi», which is not widely available in the market today, The connectivity lines do not achieve the required speeds in all situations and places, and desktop and mobile devices, handheld and smart phones, not all ready and compatible with «WiFi 6», so it is expected to be the deployment of this generation gradually and a bit slow, but it will make a big leap as the generation enters Fifth mobile phone, which will provide ultra-fast connection speeds Unimpeded Internet makes WiFi 6 work at full speed.
Manufacture of compatible devices
The Wi-Fi Alliance, the global developer of Wi-Fi technology, expects mobile phones, computers and other Wi-Fi 6 devices to begin market access by the third quarter of 2019. The new market is gradually working in tandem with the fourth and fifth generations that dominate the market today, continuing its gradual spread to achieve market dominance by 2022.
He disclosed that companies such as «Samsung», «« Huawei »and« Asus »have already started the production of devices, phones and equipment operating in the sixth generation of« Wi-Fi », as the manufacturers of electronic chips, especially« Qualcomm »in the manufacture of chipsets working and compatible with «WiFi 6».
