Intel Announces 802.11ax Chipsets for Faster Wi-Fi - IT Peer Network

Intel’s home Wi Fi chipsets are architected for our connected digital lifestyles

The 802.11ax chips should be able to offer up to 40 percent higher peak data rates for an individual device, which means a change from 433Mbps to 600Mbps. There are other chip companies in the connectivity space as well, and Intel making their 802.11ax chips available doesn't alone guarantee mass adoption of the standard. It has 8 gigabit LAN ports, MU-MIMO capability, and compatibility with Asus's mesh Wi-Fi technology so you can chain several access points together for whole-home coverage.

Next year (2019 in case you still think that we're in 2017), the current 802.11ac Wi-Fi standard will be replaced by the new 802.11ax that will offer faster internet speeds.

In addition to that, the battery life of client devices is going to be extended with these new 802.11ax chips, while at the same time increasing network efficiency.

Tal said, "The improvements in performance come precisely on time to provide a response to smart and connected homes". Problems with compatibility can cause a fair amount of frustration for end users, especially if they have equipment that does not work well with the latest 802.11ax client devices (laptops, 2 in 1s, etc.).

Mobile processor manufacturer Qualcomm was even earlier than Intel, as they have produced 802.11ax compliant chips as early as February of this year. The new standard, 802.11ax, is the next big evolution in Wi-Fi. "The 802.11ax standard lets Wi-Fi be faster and smarter and supports a larger than ever number of connected appliances with the growing popularity of HD standard streaming and the culture of smart devices and home security systems".

Achieving optimal user experience with 802.11ax

Intel's 802.11ax home Wi-Fi chipsets are architected for our connected, digital lifestyles.

Any household with lots of devices connected to a central router would benefit from 802.11ax, as well.

D-Link and Asus have already unveiled 802.11ax routers at CES this year, and you can expect to see more routers, as well as devices that can handle the speed, announced as the show goes on. The new chipsets can connect up to 256 devices and can deliver enhanced throughput for a wide range of packet sizes. This helps ensure optimal performance for devices, as well as low latency for applications like gaming, video and voice calls.
