Advanced technology has pros and cons. Suggest that always consider a technology where users are always on top priority by able to provide friendly users interface. Also, i had a high hopes that this WIFI6 innovation could improve users connectivity, seamless connection, range broadcast and improved security along with added features, license restrictions and coverage.

 

Note: also add unique hardware design 😊

The speed! All the speed! I might consider dropping my wired network in many cases if I can get even 1G speeds consistently over wifi. With the specs showing 10G, my hopes are high.

I am looking forward to the advantages Wifi 6 will provide for our multi tenant sites.

I am most excited about the higher per capita speeds as more clients choose to move to fully wireless networks.

My wish for WiFi 6 is to be able to provide the best possible WiFi experience to my customers regardless of the content that they want to consume over the network. I want to be able to tell my customers that the only limiting factor on their WiFi network is their imagination.

As one of the top distributor here in PH, it is a good time for us especially Meraki is so hot in here. Wifi6 is a must and a good technology to leverage every company requirements

The visibility it provides without having to add extra boxes in your network is what makes it above par than others.

Using Wifi to become the new access. This means higher user density on same AP, less issues with RF and better integration of client hardware. Wireless health to be even more granular for making troubleshooting and identifying client issues an easy go.

 

Get away from the backwards compatibility, most of the time it is like driving a Panigale on a running trail.

 

On the Customer side I hope the understanding of fact that if AP is the new Access layer the Switches become the distribution layer and needs more uplink bandwith. Investing in infrastructure cabling for APs and switches to gain more flexibility for the users.

I am really looking forward to see the performance and latency improvements of MU-MIMO in BOTH directions.

 

Also the OFDM Feature and Spatial frequency reuse  is reeeeeeaaaly hot!!!

More and more mobile phones use voice over wifi. With the introduction of wifi 6 I hope for a better performance and longer battery life

Its exciting to see how bandwidth usage will hike and how service providers/ISP's will cope with the bandwidth demands on new Wi-Fi 6.
