Iot Drives The Future Of Wi-Fi Connectivity

Enterprise Networking Mag | Monday, August 08, 2022

Wi-Fi 6 enhances the rollout of 5G networks by assuring connectivity indoors, in public spaces and smart buildings, and in underserved areas, where 5G is much less successful.

FREMONT, CA: Whether it is improving healthcare or resolving supply chain problems, the opportunities and advantages IoT offers are endless. That's why it's predicted that there will be 55.7 billion connected devices by 2025, 75 percent of which will be connected to an IoT platform. Connectivity, on the other hand, is one factor that prevents the Internet of Things from realizing its full potential. To deliver value, each of these Internet of Things devices — from common household appliances to traffic signals and beyond — will need to be connected, and the connectivity between them will need to be dependable and durable.

Wi-Fi can help here. Wi-Fi will play a key role in providing connectivity in the IoT, industrial IoT, healthcare, retail, and other areas. Technologies like Wi-Fi 6, Wi-Fi 6E, and Wi-Fi HaLow provide high-performance, low-latency connectivity that can efficiently and reliably support a variety of use cases.

 The current impact of IoT

IoT will change society and industry. It's already altering healthcare by connecting patients to doctors. This can be demonstrated with gadgets remotely monitoring a person's physiological condition, such as blood glucose. IoT is helping us cope with our rapidly growing population by providing farmers and agricultural organizations with analytics and data to improve efficiency.

 How connectivity will give way to IoT’s full potential

Wi-Fi 6 enhances the rollout of 5G networks by assuring connectivity indoors, in public spaces and smart buildings, and in underserved areas, where 5G is much less successful. Wi-Fi 6 also offers improved performance, lower latency, and quicker data rates. Wi-Fi 6E expands significant effects to the 6 GHz band, increasing bandwidth. Because every 6 GHz device must support Wi-Fi 6, there is no expense for earlier generations. Wi-Fi 6E uses higher bandwidth, less crowded spectrum, and up to seven super-wide 6 GHz channels to enable AR/VR, 8K streaming, and more.

 Overcoming security concerns

Strong WPA3 security and worldwide compatibility assurances are supported by Wi-Fi CERTIFIED technologies such as Wi-Fi 6, Wi-Fi 6E, and Wi-Fi HaLow. This indicates that Wi-Fi contributes to the delivery of safe, interoperable Internet of Things technology worldwide and enables Internet of Things manufacturers to provide the greatest experience possible for their consumers.

The Internet of Things will make it possible to alter many different industries and will continue to pave the way for the vast potential for innovation. Wi-Fi contains several different technologies that will assist the Internet of Things in reaching its full potential.
