Zoom classes. Netflix shows. Livestreamed work webinars. With the majority of Americans continuing to work and learn from home, annoying network congestion is plaguing families who struggle with the limited bandwidth of Wi-Fi 5. This can be particularly frustrating for college students and their professors, especially with a significant portion of higher education schools planning to adopt the blended learning model in the coming academic year. But there is a solution for that: Wi-Fi 6 can support up to four times the number of devices that Wi-Fi 5 can. Also known as the 802.11ax, this relatively new wireless connection standard promises big benefits for postsecondary schools — especially when paired with other emerging technologies, such as 5G mobile networks.
