Wi-Fi 6 is what gamers have been waiting for
Wi-Fi 6 brings next-level performance and capabilities to a wide range of applications in the IoT but one area where Wi-Fi 6 basically redefines the experience is in gaming.

The latest version of Wi-Fi, based on IEEE 802.11ax and known simply as Wi-Fi 6, is big news across the Internet of Things (IoT) for several reasons. To begin with, Wi-Fi 6 is, like its cellular counterpart, 5G, designed for the ways we’re using data today and how we’re planning to use it over time.

More specifically, Wi-Fi 6 brings WLANs into the era where everything is connected, and where internet gateways service far more devices, demanding far more bandwidth, than ever before. For example, Wi-Fi 6 improves network speed by as much as 4x. It also does a much better job of managing network congestion and reducing latency, so there are fewer lost connections and people can enjoy dramatically better experiences when using their IoT-connected devices.
