Successful WiFi 6 Deployment to Customer Homes: A service provider’s guide to intelligently controlling and optimizing the WiFi 6 home network

Thumb original plume successful wifi 6 deployment to customer homes

Following a few years of anticipation, WiFi 6 is making its way to homes and other connected places. The industry views WiFi 6 as a transformative technology that will be one of the leading trends of the 21st century and will drastically change the consumer experience. Market adoption began in earnest in 2020, and analysts and industry experts expect to see a brisk pace of growth.



Indeed, WiFi 6 brings many exciting improvements to a technology that's now two decades old. Its new features and capabilities are designed to provide advancements such as higher throughput 
and improved transmission efficiency and capacity. These will be welcome enhancements in connected environments—including the smart home, where the home network is growing more congested.

Many of the new WiFi 6 capabilities, however, come with drawbacks and limitations. For the technology to achieve its promised potential, Communications Services Providers (CSPs) will need to intelligently manage the home network. Despite all its breakthroughs, WiFi 6 requires more, not less, optimization than previous WiFi generations— and its performance will depend largely on the system controlling it.

3 Reasons the Campus Is the Heart of Enterprise Security

Even as digital acceleration continues to transform businesses, the campus remains the heart of the network. Today, the campus network needs to do much more than simply interconnect the buildings located in the same geographical location. It also needs access to the internet, dispersed data centers, and applications deployed in both the data center and multiple clouds. And it needs to interconnect an increasingly hybrid workforce that needs to collaborate from both within and outside the campus local-area network (LAN).
