Although the current epidemic situation, Xiaomi released WiFi 6 router and mobile phone supporting WiFi 6 on February 13, and Huawei released WiFi 6 router on February 24. If 2019 is the first commercial year of WiFi 6, 2020 is the year when WiFi 6 begins to blow out.
WiFi 6 is three times faster than WiFi 5
Compared with the most popular WiFi 5, WiFi 6 is faster, supports more concurrent devices, has lower latency and lower power consumption. WiFi6 uses OFDMA technology, combined with 1024-QAM high-order modulation, which can support up to 160 MHz bandwidth and nearly three times faster than WiFi5.
Intelligent frequency division technology can support more concurrent devices and increase the capacity of access devices by 4 times. The access devices are multi concurrent, which can reduce the queuing phenomenon, avoid the interference coloring actively, and reduce the delay by two-thirds. When the terminal device is in standby mode, it supports on-demand wake-up function to reduce the power consumption of the terminal by 30%.
WiFi 6 is cutting prices
Since the second half of 2019, major manufacturers have launched the first batch of WiFi6 lineless routers and terminals. But the price of routers in this period is very expensive, two or three thousand yuan to buy.
Until the price killer tp link launched its first WiFi 6 wireless router, the price was only 399 yuan. Not to mention the performance controversy of this product, its price directly brings WiFi 6 router into the ordinary family.
WiFi 6 popularizes 8K and VR
At this stage, WiFi6 router terminal gigabit broadband, theoretically can provide users with the fastest 1Gbps wireless transmission rate. Gigabit wireless transmission rate, has been comparable to the traditional network transmission, but also brought new home network applications.
For example, when we watch plays and sports events at home, the highest quality is 4K, which is 2D. VR live video has poor picture quality and dizzy experience at current Internet speed. Because the entry-level 8K VR experience requires a network speed of about 130mbps, while the ideal 12K VR experience requires a bandwidth of at least 540mbps.
After the arrival of wifi6, the problem of network speed has been completely solved, and the network delay has been greatly reduced. VR, which was originally unseen and dizzy, can be fully experienced by users with the help of gigabit network. In the future, watching plays and competitions seems to be on the spot.
Terminal Support WiFi 6
The same is true of cloud games. Now our experience is that there is a significant delay in the movement of the characters in the screen after the client issues the operation instructions. As a result, some action games, racing games, sports games and so on simply cannot play. With the support of WiFi 6, you really don't need to hold a game host or a PC to play games. Mobile phones, tablets, laptops and even televisions can enjoy the pleasure of cloud games at home at any time through high-speed networks.
Upgrade ushered in 100 billion market
The price of WiFi 6 was still high last year. At the beginning of this year, the price has been reduced by 4500 yuan. Such a price is completely acceptable to ordinary families. According to the ZDC report, 100-500 yuan wireless router has become the first choice of consumers, and its concern rate has reached 61%.
Cloud VR Cloud Game
The terminal should be replaced
In 2020, new laptops, mobile phones or tablets will be replaced. These terminal devices have already supported WiFi 6. It is more reasonable to spend another 4500 to buy a WiFi 6 wireless router to enjoy faster network speed. So 2020 will be a blowout year for WiFi 6 devices and terminals. Another generation tide is coming, and 100 billion markets are waiting to be divided.
The rate of upgrading is getting faster and faster, from WiFi 4 to WiFi 5 for about five years, and from WiFi 5 to WiFi 6 for about two years, it is believed to be enough for full popularity. Who doesn't want to use faster WiFi?
