WiFi-6: What It Means For MSPs

By Ryan Denissoff

There are 15 billion WiFi-enabled devices in use around the world. WiFi-6 is the most recent iteration of the WiFi network protocol and brings consumers and businesses alike a faster, more efficient internet connection. So what does it mean for the managed service providers (MSPs) providing networking services to the small and medium businesses of the world?

This powerful new wireless standard helps increase network capacity and efficiency by leveraging new technologies that enable multiple users to simultaneously connect and transmit data without sacrificing performance or battery life.

Efficient and secure WiFi-6 technology built for MSPs

MSPs can better serve clients’ networking connectivity needs with the benefits of WiFi-6 technology, including:

  • Increased network capacity: WiFi-6 allows more end users and their devices on the network at the same time without compromising connectivity.
  • Improved device battery life: Compatible devices use power more efficiently and require less charging and maintenance.
  • Outdoor reliability: WiFi-6 enables better performance in open/outdoor spaces and has fewer dead spots, which improves roaming.
  • Peak throughput increase: Users benefit from higher data rates even on busier networks.
  • Enhanced WiFi coexistence: WiFi-6 uses advanced filtering techniques to efficiently coexist with other nearby networks, which improves the overall quality of the wireless experience.
