Hopefully it will work fast and stable and I won't hear that clients have problems while videoconferencing!

New technologies, greater density + throughput --> greater service! That's what it's about it at the end of the day. Enabling users to do what they need to do and what they want to do without restrictions imposed by the technology.

smooth connection of any client especially IOT or BYOD in a secure isolated way without a lot of overhead hassle with certificated roll-out etc.

...in SMB context, i hope to reduce repeaters and AP, more performance and stability for all devices, less helpdesk and support… enable IoT benefits

I am looking forward to greater integration with IoT devices in the world of VR whether it be in Home (Gaming & Media) or the business applications, Wi-Fi 6 with better efficiency for wireless channels and speed for high bandwidth applications for rich media content. very exciting times, especially with VR going wireless and 4K.

I hope for a better Voice over Wireless Experience (Collaboration).

And I hope that Wifi 6 will save its place in world where 5G exists... because I want to keep my job Smiley Wink

Looking forward to test it out and see its performance in VoIP and cloud based applications like virtual desktops and SaaS

Anyone else get that horrible feeling like when you've just spent a fortune on Home Theatre only to find out 8K Atmos DTX is what you should have waited for.... you fool.

I would like to be able to share the Wi-fi password from my phone (already connected to a network) to my friend's phone (for example) with just one click

I'm looking forward to a network that does a lot more to manage the client load and connections between the access points to better manage hotspots around the building.

Can't wait to see the performance improvements, especially the use of 2.4G again, (as it works better through walls!) and the impact this will have in education.

More clients per access point.

I am looking forward to the better coverage that WiFi 6 brings and also the congestion issues that WiFi 6 helps solve.

kYutobi
Kind of a big deal

Want to see the (OFDMA) function and (MU-MIMO) technology, eight users at the same time and at the same speed. Robot Mad OH YEAH!

Wi-Fi 6

........an option to brew a good cup of coffee.

 

Please!

I think, we should have look at 802.11ac Wave 2, at fist. What was the purpose of ac Wave 2? Better connection, better performance. However, it did not work that way, had some restrictions such as for MIMO-Multi User. Therefore, hopefully 802.11ax aka Wifi 6 will reach the goal and cover all the commitments, truely.

 

Second thing is, endpoints. Infrastructure will not be "the one" of this dream. You may replace your access points with Wifi 6 series, may replace your switches and network infrastructure to perform Wifi 6, but it is nothing if endpoints cannot complete your capacity. Which mobile device brands did even invest in 802.11ac Wave 2? Nothing, but Hauwei.

 

Wifi 6 makes a promise that will be the solution for almost 90% issues of wireless. If everything goes the way that it should be, Wifi 6 will be new era of the Wireless World.

 

I wish that will happen and we will make the world wireless!
