White paper: Huawei explores WiFi 6: IEEE 802.11ax technology
Since the first generation of 802.11 standards released in 1997, the 802.11 standard has experienced tremendous development and popularity. Nowadays, WiFi becomes the first choice for Internet access of more and more users, and tends to replace wired access gradually.
To satisfy the needs of new service applications and reduce the gap with wired network bandwidth, each generation of 802.11 standards among the five generations of WiFi systems (801.11, 802.11b, 802.11a/g, 802.11n and 802.11ac) embraces a significant increase in the rate.
To cope with increasing wireless communications requirements, the IEEE 802.11 Working Group officially established the 802.11ax Working Group in 2014, and plans to release the 802.11ax standard in 2019. This white paper explores 802.11ax technology.
