CEDIA’s latest white paper addresses Wi-Fi 6

The paper dives into the new WiFi 6 standard that has been designed to address some of the most prevalent wireless networking issues and provide high efficiency Wi-Fi

CEDIA’s latest white paper release, “Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax): High Efficiency Wi-Fi,” dives into the new WiFi 6 standard that has been designed to address some of the most prevalent wireless networking issues and provide high efficiency Wi-Fi.

Wi-Fi 6 is the latest wireless networking standard and brings with it far more than just a new naming convention. Fundamentally different to all previous standards, Wi-Fi 6 promises higher data rates, more robust connections, and simultaneous data reception or transmission between access points and multiple client devices.

“Now more than ever, homeowners expect their technology and their Wi-Fi to work seamlessly. In addition to providing increased data rates, Wi-Fi 6 will be able to support more users. The new white paper provides CEDIA members with the guidance they need to prepare for this technological evolution on their projects and to design systems to the new standard,” said Walt Zerbe, CEDIA Senior Director of Technology and Standards.

CEDIA also hosted a webinar on this topic, “Wi-Fi 6: The Next Generation in Wi-Fi,” which nicely complements the content of the white paper. A free recording of the session is available on the CEDIA YouTube channel.

Zerbe adds, “It’s hard to overstate the popularity and importance of this topic; it is going to have far reaching effects for all CEDIA members and their clients. Besides the improved performance and new features of Wi-Fi 6, we have a new sales opportunity with the new naming conventions. The shift from difficult-to-convey names such as 802.11N and 802.11AX to friendlier names such as Wi-Fi 5 and Wi-Fi 6, combined with the new on-device logo approach will finally stir up demand from customers for network upgrades.”

Publication of the resource follows recent releases of white papers including “HDBaseT for 4K & 8K Video,” “AV-Over-IP Systems,” “Quality of Power ,” and “Integrators Guide to Video: Colorimetry.” These white paper resources align with CEDIA’s global, strategic mission to serve as the primary source of design and installation standards, guidelines, and best practices for the home technology integration industry.

CEDIA members have complimentary access to “Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax): High Efficiency Wi-Fi” ($99 for non-members) and more information on CEDIA’s portfolio of white papers is available here.
