Wi-Fi 6: Expanding the role of Wi-Fi in the enterprise

Download or read the Tech Brief

Wi-Fi is ubiquitous in the enterprise. Can you think of an office building, a warehouse, a hospital, or a college campus an enterprise without Wi-Fi? With Wi-Fi 6, the next generation of Wi-Fi, Wi-Fi has become an even better fit for the enterprise, for voice and data connectivity, and for new IoT and industrial IoT (IIoT) use cases. 

As enterprise connectivity needs grow, Wi-Fi has stepped up to the challenge with higher capacity, greater reliability and security, and lower latency, alongside a new set of traffic management tools. Far from Wi-Fi being replaced by 5G, the two technologies continue to develop and be adopted in parallel, complementing each other in increasingly integrated enterprise wireless private networks.
