CISCO'S WIFI 6: THE BEST TECHNOLOGY IN 2019?

2018 was a transformational year for the networking industry, but how is it looking in 2019? There has been unprecedented pressure on networks as a result of consumer-driven data consumption fuelled by the mobile and broadband services in IoT's. Wireless advances,5G, geolocation, Artificial Intelligence, software-defined WANs and intelligent network management tools are among the top technologies that will impact the networking community in 2019.

What is good about the Wifi 6?

Think of it as the unauthorized equivalent to the various Gs - 3G, 4G, 5G that cellular data have used over the years. The fundamental technology behind Wifi 6 is still 802.11ax on the technical side.
Wi-Fi 6 is also seen as a possible communications method for internet-of-things (IoT) devices that have low power capabilities and limited battery life. It also promises major advances beyond just higher data rates, including better performance in dense radio environments and higher power efficiency.

The race for 5G is on and will continue apace in 2019. 2019 is set to be another pivotal year and expect to see these trends gain momentum.
