The growing number and variety of connected devices are placing overwhelming demands on home wireless networks. It’s time for a Wi-Fi upgrade.
Introducing Wi-Fi 6 for an “Everything’s Connected” World
Today’s home Wi-Fi experience is hampered by network traffic jams and inconsistent performance. With new Intel® Wi-Fi 6 (Gig+) enabled routers and gateways, customers can reliably access Gigabit and higher Wi-Fi speeds throughout their homes — on all their devices.1
Leading the Way
Intel was the first to deliver Wi-Fi 6 chipsets for mainstream 2+2 Wi-Fi 6 (Gig+) home routers and gateways for cable, xDSL, fiber, and consumer retail — and a 4x4 solution is on the way.
Intel® Wi-Fi 6 (Gig +) technology spans PCs and access points to deliver ultra-responsive Wi-Fi connectivity for optimal user experiences. Because Wi-Fi quality is only as strong as the weakest connection.
Intel continues to play a leadership role in the development of Wi-Fi standards and certification through the Wi-Fi Alliance — helping customers bring new Wi-Fi 6 devices to market.
Intel® Wi-Fi 6 (Gig+) Delivers Best-in-Class Performance1
4X Higher Capacity
Reduce network congestion with up to 4X higher capacity.2 Intel® Wi-Fi 6 (Gig+) technology with OFDMA multi-user and trigger frame features was designed for device-dense environments.3
75% Lower Latency
Wi-Fi 6 (Gig+) by Intel can reduce latency by up to 75%,3 delivering ultra-responsive, ultra-smooth wireless video streaming, gameplay, and other online experiences.
Get nearly 3X faster downloads4 with 1024 QAM and 160 MHz channels on Intel® Wi-Fi 6 (Gig+) products.
Leading Manufacturers Choose Intel® Wi-Fi 6 (Gig+)
Top equipment manufacturers are introducing new home routers and gateways featuring Intel® Wi-Fi 6 (Gig+) technology to deliver the future of Wi-Fi.
Best in Class Wi-Fi 6: Intel® Wi-Fi 6 (Gig+) products support optional 160 MHz channels, enabling the fastest possible theoretical maximum speeds (2402 Mbps) for typical 2x2 802.11ax PC Wi-Fi products. Premium Intel® Wi-Fi 6 (Gig+) products enable 2-4x faster maximum theoretical speeds compared standard 2x2 (1201 Mbps) or 1x1 (600 Mbps) 802.11ax PC Wi-Fi products, which only support the mandatory requirement of 80 MHz channels.
4 倍網路能力/擴充性：此主張係根據比較大小類似的 802.11ax 與 802.11ac 網路的整體網路能力。IEEE 802.11-14/0165r1 802.11ax 規格修訂定義了 IEEE 802.11 實體層 (PHY) 與 IEEE 802.11 媒體存取控制層 (MAC) 的標準化修改：在密集部署的狀況下，啟用至少一個操作模式，能支援每一站台平均輸送量至少提升四倍（在 MAC 資料服務存取點測量），同時維持或提升每一站台的電源效率。如需更詳細的資訊，請參閱：https://mentor.ieee.org/802.11/dcn/14/11-14-0165-01-0hew-802-11-hew-sg-proposed-par.docx。
延遲減少 75%：依據 Intel 使用 9 個用戶端測試 802.11ax 採用與未採用 OFDMA 的模擬資料 (79%)。未採用 OFDMA 的平均延遲為 36 毫秒，採用 OFDMA 的平均延遲則降低為 7.6 毫秒。為了改善延遲，802.11ax (Wi-Fi 6) 路由器與所有用戶端皆必須支援 OFDMA。
加快將近 3 倍：802.11ax 2x2 160 MHz 能實現 2402 Mbps 最高理論資料速率，較 IEEE 802.11 無線標準規格所記錄的標準 802.11ac 2x2 80 MHz (867 Mbps) 快了將近 3 倍（2.8 倍）；需使用類似配置的 802.11ax 無線網路路由器。
