  • The new 802.11ax protocol will bring higher peak data rates and efficiency

Celeno Communications, the provider of smart, managed Wi-Fi solutions, has announced its Everest 802.11ax silicon solution created to address the demand for a high performance yet cost optimized solution as well as ensuring rapid migration of existing 802.11ac designs to 802.11ax, the company said. And while Intel's Wi-Fi chips are used in Arris routers - which are used by Comcast, so they're inherently pretty popular - Intel isn't almost as big in the connectivity space as some of the other chip companies, so this availability isn't necessarily going to be what gets the ball rolling.

There's good reason for the industry's enthusiasm about 802.11ax.

When Wi-Fi works smarter, consumers - my family included - get faster, smoother content streaming, online gaming, video calls and Internet browsing. This essentially means that if infrastructure devices based on Draft 1.0 are networking with Draft 2.0 client devices, they may experience poor performance. The new chipsets can connect up to 256 devices and can deliver enhanced throughput for a wide range of packet sizes. There are other chip companies in the connectivity space as well, and Intel making their 802.11ax chips available doesn't alone guarantee mass adoption of the standard. You've seen us in the past show you the Wi-Fi certification awarded to a new device by the Wi-Fi Alliance. The new 802.11ax standard offers considerable improvements over its predecessor, 802.11ac, with up to 40% higher peak data rates for a single client and up to 4x higher average throughput per user in congested environments consequentially increasing network efficiency and battery life of clients. Once product certification begins for 802.11ax next year, it will be at least a few months before certified products make it to the market.

Intel will have 802.11ax 2x2 and 4x4 routers before the end of the year. This is due to product certification.
