Wi-Fi Naming Changing for Easier Differentiation

Category: Networking
Posted: 09:00AM

When choosing wireless networking equipment, for years we have been reading a, b, g, n, or ac and while those familiar with the equipment grasp what this means, it is still an odd naming scheme. Well, the Wi-Fi Alliance has decided to change it, so now the upcoming 802.11ax technology will be known as Wi-Fi 6, while 802.11ac can be identified as Wi-Fi 5, 802.11n as Wi-Fi 4, and so on. This generational naming scheme should make it easier for people to recognize how the technologies relate to each other, and we will see Wi-Fi 6 certification coming in 2019.
