Current Facts about 802.11ax (Wi-Fi 6)
Pre-standard or not ratified as of today (Oct 4th, 2019)
• Expected to be ratified in late CY19
Most client devices today don’t support Wi-Fi 6
• New 802.11ax capable clients are expected to hit the market in late CY19
802.11ax APs are backward compatible with non-802.11ax clients
• Non-802.11ax clients can still benefit from Wi-Fi 6
802.11ax APs require new generation / more powerful chipsets
• Firmware updates cannot upgrade 802.11ac APs to 802.11ax
