TP-Link Brings WiFi 6 to Everyone

By TP-Link Editorial Group

What is WiFi 6?

Introduced in 2018, WiFi 6 (802.11ax WiFi) builds and improves on the current WiFi 5 (802.11ac WiFi) standard, and is designed to improve speed, increase efficiency and reduce congestion in heavy bandwidth usage scenarios..


What you can expect from WiFi 6

As the most advanced innovation in WiFi technology rolling out globally, WiFi 6 features faster speed, higher efficiency, larger capacity, and more scalability, compared with the previous WiFi 5 (802.11ac WiFi).

  • Explosively fast WiFi up to 9.6 Gbps. WiFi 6 uses both 1024-QAM to provide a signal packed with more data (giving you more efficiency) and a 160 MHz channel to provide a wider channel to make your wireless internet faster. Experience stutter-free VR and enjoy stunning 4K and 8K streaming.
  • 4× more capacity for more devices. WiFi 6 uses 8×8 uplink/downlink MU-MIMO, OFDMA, and BSS Color to provide up to 4× larger capacity to handle more devices. Come home to a virtually flawless smart home experience or throw house parties with a network built to handle all your guests and their devices.
  • Reduced power consumption. Target Wake Time (TWT) allows devices to negotiate when and how often they will wake up to send or receive data, increasing device sleep time and substantially improving battery life for mobile and IoT devices.
  • Backwards compatible. WiFi 6 takes your Wi-Fi to the next level while being backwards compatible with the previous 802.11a/b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi standards.

*Maximum wireless transmission rates are the physical rates derived from IEEE Standard 802.11 specifications. Range and coverage specifications are based upon test results under normal usage conditions. Actual wireless transmission rate and wireless coverage are not guaranteed and will vary as a result of 1) environmental factors, including building materials, physical objects, and obstacles, 2) network conditions, including local interference, volume and density of traffic, product location, network complexity, and network overhead and 3) client limitations, including rated performance, location, connection quality, and client condition.

Use of 802.11ax (Wi-Fi 6) and its features including OFDMA, HE160, and 1024-QAM requires clients to also support corresponding features. The 160 MHz bandwidth may be unavailable in the 5 GHz band in some regions/countries due to regulatory restrictions.
