The future is unstoppable. Your Wi-Fi should be too.
Why do you need Wi-Fi 6?
Because your smart home is reaching the limits of its potential. Prevailing Wi-Fi standards simply aren’t built to support “noisy” Wi-Fi environments with countless personal devices and smart home gadgets running simultaneously 24/7.
Wi-Fi 6 brings next-generation Wi-Fi technology into your home, giving you the quantum leap in capacity, speed, and range you need to handle all your Wi-Fi demands. Perfect for high-performance, highly device-dense smart homes.
Unlike the existing 11ac wireless standard that operates only in the 5 GHz range, Wi-Fi 6 fully utilizes both 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands. It also comes with 1024 QAM to boost throughput to devices by up to 25%, and 160 MHz contiguous channel width for even more bandwidth.

|QAM||256-QAM||1024-QAM (25% higher throughput)|
|Wireless Encryption||802.11 128-bit AES||Latest Wi-Fi security with 128-bit encryption|
With Faster Speed Comes Greater Stability
What’s more – Wi-Fi 6 introduces 4x longer OFDM symbols. An OFDM symbol transmits data, however Wi-Fi 6’s longer OFDM symbol divides the data into sub carriers, providing much more stability and allowing more data to be transmitted within the same space. A long OFDM symbol also increases range so your Wi-Fi signal can reach further, especially outdoors.
The best part? Built-in Power Amplifiers and beamforming extend the reach of your Wi-Fi and direct the signals where they need to go. Wi-Fi 6 (11ax) lets you unleash all that lightning-fast Wi-Fi goodness over larger areas than ever – from bedroom and bathroom all the way to basement and backyard.
Got a smart home packed with IoT devices transmitting signals unceasingly? Target Wake Time (TWT) schedules transmissions for your smart devices efficiently, meaning they will know when to be ready for data, and when to take a break. The result? A significant boost in battery life for your IoT home devices!
Unprecedented Wi-Fi Efficiency
Meet the multi-device superhero for your multi-device smart home. Wi-Fi 6 uses cutting-edge Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiple Access (OFDMA) to split a channel into four sub-channels. The result? Signals from multiple devices get transmitted together in one shot and never have to queue up again. Giving an incredible boost to your bandwidth capacity! Perfect for smart homes filled with bandwidth-hungry IoT devices threatening to devour your Wi-Fi capacity.
Your neighbours’ Wi-Fi could be interfering with your wireless signals and slowing things down. Wi-Fi 6 puts an end to the Wi-Fi strife with BSS Coloring technology. It makes transmissions more unique by ‘colouring’ them with their own unique code.
The result? Devices can decide whether to transmit signals or ignore them, based on their “colour”. Get less interference, less Wi-Fi slowdowns and more range.
