As far as wireless networks are concerned, WiFi 6 has become the most current standard, sought after by many when choosing a new smartphone. Even so, this new generation is not available on all devices , generally only being integrated into the high-end.
Unlike the previous generation, that is, the WiFi 5 standard also known as WiFi AC, this sixth generation (802.11ax) is capable of reaching 9.6Gbps , thus achieving a higher transfer speed thanks to its greater modulation than in this case reaches 1024-QAM .
In addition, WiFi 6 integrates certain techniques such as BBS coloration, avoiding possible interference with other wireless networks. Likewise, the integration of OFDMA technology allows the sending and receiving of data simultaneously , thus improving speed and latency.
