However, Intel is also making its own optimizations to the standard for better performance amongst its own 802.11ax devices.

Intel announced that it will ship in 2018 chips supporting the new Wi-Fi standard 802.11ax. Processor company Intel recently announced that they will be manufacturing processors that comply with the said standard within this year. 802.11ax should help in congested situations, though, with its ability to manage more connections more intelligently.

And even though total network capacity is a major focus of 802.11ax, the peak speed should improve, too - from 433Mbps for 802.11ac to 600Mbps with 802.11ax, NI said.

There's good reason for the industry's enthusiasm about 802.11ax. 802.11ax is the newest IEEE standard for Wi-Fi and is created to meet the ever-increasing demands on Wi-Fi in our connected world.




"There are already more than eight devices in the average USA home" using Wi-Fi, said Kevin Robinson, vice president of marketing for the Wi-Fi Alliance. This essentially means that if infrastructure devices based on Draft 1.0 are networking with Draft 2.0 client devices, they may experience poor performance. Now multiple routers are more common, and the Wi-Fi Alliance has begun work to let multiple network devices cooperate automatically so the data gets where it needs to be without our having to manually link this phone to that router and that light bulb to that one. What's holding it back for this year are delayed product certification.

Intel will be releasing its 802.11ax chipsets this year. This is important since a more mature draft - Draft 2.0 or higher - will be the baseline for 802.11ax certification, and Wi-Fi CERTIFIED* is the only way to truly guarantee multivendor interoperability.

Intel is helping OEMs to smoothly transition to the new standard by upgrading its WAV500 Series home Wi-Fi chipsets to 802.11ax without needing to change the host SoC. Chipsets upgraded to 802.11ax will also offer backward compatibility with existing Wi-Fi technologies. It'll be several months before certified products hit the market.
