The future of WiFi

When the 11ac standard was published in 2013, it introduced new features including beamforming and MU-MIMO and changed the face of Internet service. However, 11ac only applied to the 5 GHz band. Service providers currently face increasing pressure from their subscribers as the adopt new applications which require much higher throughput speeds and simultaneous connections to multiple devices. The 11ac Wave 2 technology is unable to fulfill the growing bandwidth requirements of these advanced applications.
Meeting the ever-increasing demands for high-performance WiFi is a new technology, 802.11ax (11ax), which is also known as WiFi 6. 11ax features 1024-QAM which provides high-throughput in both 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz band, and supports MU-MIMO & Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiple Access (OFDMA) to improve the channel capacity and efficiency for enabling more clients to access the AP. Network functionality is improved by the Target Wake-up Time (TWT) and Basic Service Set (BSS) Color Code features.

10 Gbps WiFi Capability

11ax dual-band (2.4 GHz + 5 GHz) technology helps you overcome the limitations of single while maximizing each band’s merits. Used in combination with the 1024-QAM, it increases maximum physical (PHY) data transfer speeds to 10 Gbps.

SIMULTANEOUSLY

DL/UL MU-MIMO

When compared to the previous standard, 11ax offers MU-MIMO support both in the downlink and the uplink direction, allowing client data transmissions to be simultaneously received by the AP.

DL/UL OFDMA

The OFDMA feature allows the AP to assign different parts of the spectrum to different users, improving traffic coordination and rational spectrum usage.

Target Wake-up Time

The AP coordinates transmission times from different sources, allowing devices to sleep during the non-transmission periods since there is no need to be awake and monitor beacons sent by the AP.

Break the speed limitations
with 1024-QAM

Break the speed limitations of connection to open up new opportunities by delivering to your subscribers' unprecedented performance that enables businesses to implement the latest cutting-edge high-bandwidth and low-latency applications.
Implementing the innovative 1024-QAM technology provides up to a 25% increase in data rate to achieve speeds up to 10 Gbps enabling your internet service to support 4K/8K video and AR/VR game requirements.

Expand your service capacity with UL MU-MIMO

An increasing array of applications require the uploading of data from multiple devices at the same time. Zyxel 11ax devices incorporate uplink MIMO support allowing multiple users to upload data simultaneously. Increasing the number of MU-MIMO clients that can connect to the device improves network efficiency and overall capacity.
The implementation of MU-MIMO on the uplink also allows you to expand the capacity of your services in those industries which require simultaneous real-time data exchange among multiple devices. This is particularly important in areas that use high-bandwidth applications such as AR/VR gaming or live broadcast HD video.

Create new opportunities
for data traffic with OFDMA

OFDMA is an essential 11ax feature for high-throughput WiFi locations or high-density environments. Zyxel 11ax devices incorporate OFDMA to allow you to increase the capacity of your service and provide subscribers with low latency and high-speed connection. With OFDMA you can support the newest Smart Home devices, video, and industrial applications by creating low-bandwidth channels which can support simultaneous connections for several parallel clients.

Boost your service efficiency
with RU Scheduling

By reducing the size of resource units (RU), WiFi 6 is able to support the simultaneous transmission of data to different devices simultaneously. You can increase the efficiency of your services across multiple data applications and increase the satisfaction level of your subscribers through RU scheduling. By rationalizing the usage of the transmission channels, and allocating and scheduling the resource units, the transmission channel can be reused and the network can support more simultaneous communications. By combining RU scheduling with 8x8 MU-MIMO, Zyxel 11ax products will open up new opportunities by increasing the efficiency of existing channels.
