High Efficiency Wi-Fi- 802.11ax
High Efficiency Wi-Fi- 802.11ax | Dr. Eldad Perahia | WLPC 2017 Phoenix
Session Description: The issues facing next generation Wi-Fi systems involve degradation to system efficiency due to dense deployments and due to network traffic with a preponderance of short data frames (e.g. Voice-over-Wi-Fi). PHY and MAC enhancements in 802.11ax will include Uplink MU-MIMO, Downlink and Uplink OFDMA, and Spatial Reuse to improve spectral efficiency and density. In addition, there will be features in 802.11ax to improve outdoor coverage and power saving in new client devices.
