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

The new 802.11ax protocol will bring higher peak data rates and efficiency

For an example, look at the recent update to the current Wi-Fi standard, 802.11ac.

Intel says that in 2018, it will be paving the "path to faster, more intelligent Wi-Fi" with new chipsets for consumer devices, and mainstream 2x2 and 4x4 home routers and gateways for cable, xDSL, and fiber.

"802.11ax chips have been built from the start for a digital and connected life", added Tal. With these new chips comes a whole host of upgrades and improvements from the predecessor, 802.11ac. It's expected to deliver up to 40 percent higher peak data rates for a single client device and improve average throughput per user by at least four times in dense or congested environments.

The new Intel chipsets will be based on Draft 2.0 of the 802.11ax standard and it is important for all infrastructure devices to adhere to Draft 2.0 and not Draft 1.0, to ensure interoperability.

These performance enhancements are coming just in time to answer new demands in the smart and connected home. In addition, Intel's new 802.11ax home Wi-Fi chipsets will offer backward compatibility with older Wi-Fi technologies to support a breadth of client devices. The certification is done to give consumers the confidence that the device they purchased will indeed work with the new standard.

Intel may have been one of the first to produce 802.11ax chips.

Even once certification arrives for 802.11ax next year, don't expect to take advantage of it for a little while. That could result in a suboptimal experience in which consumers could see degraded throughput, decreases in network efficiency and increased interference.

Intel announced this week that it'll have chips ready within the year for the next generation of Wi-Fi - what's known as 802.11ax. "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".

Several wireless router manufacturers announced new 802.11ax compatible products. Intel has clarified that the standard offers the primary computing engine dedicated bandwidth so it can carry out necessary security functions. The Wi-Fi Alliance, a consortium of companies that designs and certifies Wi-Fi standards, isn't planning on certifying devices until later this year.
