Intel Announces 802.11ax Chipsets for Faster Wi-Fi

Achieving optimal user experience with 802.11ax

For that reason, future developments like the new 802.11ax core Wi-Fi standard are focused on "increasing the overall capacity of the network". This new generation is supposed to faster, of course, but mostly it's meant to perform better in environments with lots and lots of connected devices; so things like public hotspots, but also your house if you just have a ton of phones and tablets and smart gadgets lying around. Devices based on 802.11ax Draft 1.0 will suffer from a suboptimal experience and increased interference.

Speedier, More Secure Wi-Fi Routers - D-Link- announced a new AC2600 Wi-Fi Router powered by McAfee- and based on Intel's connected home technology. 802.11ax should help in congested situations, though, with its ability to manage more connections more intelligently. This is important since a more mature draft - Draft 2.0 or higher - will be the baseline for 802.11ax certification, and Wi-Fi CERTIFIED* is the only way to truly guarantee multivendor interoperability.

Injured After Fire Breaks Out at Trump Tower
More than 100 firefighters have responded to a call from Trump Tower, where a blaze has broken out in the NY building. A fire broke at Trump Tower in NY district's Manhattan area in United States on Monday, NBC News has reported .

Apart from Intel, several other WiFi chipset vendors are expected to announce 802.11ax based chipsets at CES next week. Additionally, the Blue Cave Wi-Fi router from ASUS-, equipped with the Intel Home Wi-Fi Chipset WAV500 Series, combines powerful Wi-Fi and complete network security with a cool, modern design that begs to be noticed. Intel will expand its home Wi-Fi portfolio with new 802.11ax chipsets for mainstream 2×2 and 4×4 home routers and gateways for cable, xDSL, fiber and consumer retail devices. This next-gen Wi-Fi standard is supposed to offer 40-percent faster speeds than IEEE 802.11ac. It will also provide enhanced throughput rates, and low latency in gaming, video, and voice calls. Celeno´s extensive chip portfolio and ground-breaking software technologies are created to excel in real life, highly interfered dense network scenarios, delivering the level of management, performance, speed, coverage, reliability and superlative user experience demanded by Wi-Fi users.

Every device these days depends on Wi-Fi, and a new standard the Wi-Fi Alliance is working on should make it more reliable.
