Wi-Fi 6 and 6E – How ‘Electrifying’ Is the 6 for IoT & the Smart Home?

Lecture electronica Conferences > Wireless Congress > Session 1: Wi-Fi

11:40-12:05 h | Virtual

I have been observing and participating in the evolution of Wi-Fi (from WaveLAN ), the Internet of Things (IoT) and the smart home for a long time now, working for companies that contributed to the development of new communication technologies. Taking a big part in standards definitions like Wi-Fi and Zigbee, gives me this critical view on how the technology and standards are evolving - as we are just at the very beginning of the smart home. We should make the IoT as simple as possible to guarantee quick adoption by companies and end-users, providing services and not just connected devices to improve our homes and our lives. How do we separate the noise from what is real and important? And should consumers care about any of this? When Wi-Fi was emerging in the late 1990s, the general tendency in “3GPP-land” was to ask: why do you need Wi-Fi? The general opinion was that this “unlicensed technology” would disappear, probably sooner than later, because in the unlicensed bands, the lack of oversight would bring the performance spiraling down quickly. However, Wi-Fi has found a way to operate in the unlicensed ISM-bands properly and satisfy the needs for wireless connectivity indoor, in-home or in-building, where 3G was not able to penetrate well. Also, Wi-Fi rapidly increased its data rate and expanded its capabilities by moving from the 2.4 GHz band into the 5 GHz band, and now growing into the 6 GHz band (6E). Indeed, the smart home basic concept is centered around distributed Wi-Fi (“Wi-Fi Mesh”), using a one pod per room infrastructure. With the Wi-Fi 6 technology, it could finally be a reality - combining high data rate and great coverage, more speed for demanding applications, and ultra-low power technology for sensor networks supporting multiple wireless communication standards - this paves the way to a more connected world.
