There is a great shake-up coming to enterprise networks in the form of Wi-Fi 6 and 5G technologies — and the ripples will likely be felt for many years.
5G carrier-based wireless, which is at the first stages of rollout, promises incredible performance to mobile workers and the enterprise in general. Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) is also at the point of going mainstream. Together, these new technologies mean a dramatically altered landscape for users, and the enablement of use cases for wireless that simply weren’t possible before.
These next generations of Wi-Fi and cellular networking will completely transform the wireless experience for both workers and customers. For enterprise users, 5G and Wi-Fi 6 will coexist; however, the challenge for IT will be to consistently manage these separate access technologies as integrated systems with unified security, policy, and analytics.
Much of the hype around 5G and Wi-Fi 6 has to do with speed. While both technologies promise — and will deliver — blazing speed with a greater capacity to handle high volumes of data, they are about much more than just speed. They are also about unlocking new use cases for wireless tech and overcoming many modern challenges.
For businesses, these new technologies open the door to new applications and services that can serve as a growth engine. Think augmented reality, virtual reality, and critical user services. It will be possible to provide all of them over wireless 5G- and Wi-Fi 6-powered networks.
