D-Link Wi-Fi 6 and DGS-1520 Series Switches header image

Purposely Designed to Face the Growing Number of Devices and Users.

Wi-Fi 6 is purpose-built to deal with the connectivity and interference issues that have emerged as the number of devices skyrockets.

As the network slows down, so does business. Wi-Fi 6 is more than just speed improvements, it better handles multiple users and devices, dramatically improving performance for everyone. It gets your business productivity back to its peak and beyond.


What’s New With Wi-Fi 6?

MU-MIMO – Multi-User, Multiple Input, Multiple Output

Better Handling of More Users Than Ever Before

Enhanced MU-MIMO gives you more capacity than ever before, allowing up to 8 devices to transmit simultaneously using a dedicated channel per device. This powerful feature greatly enhances large packet data—such as HD video—to be streamed more efficiently.

ODFMA – Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiple Access

The Perfect Partner for IoT

OFDMA greatly optimizes short packet transmission. Devices need no longer wait their turn, going one by one. Instead, shorter packets can be transmitted in parallel. This greatly reduces contention, in turn cutting down latency and jitter. Handling data this way means overall better performance of your network, giving a big boost to small but latency sensitive traffic such as voice or IoT data.

2.4GHz Band Compatibility

A Helping Hand for 2.4 GHz-Exclusive Devices

Wi-Fi 5 and all of its features are only available in the 5 GHz band. This meant many low-power IoT devices such as sensors that were only compatible with the 2.4 GHz band missed out.

However, Wi-Fi 6 now includes the 2.4 GHz band, empowering IoT devices with low latency and higher capacity for even more simultaneously connected devices.

1024-QAM – Quadrature Amplitude Modulation

The Capacity Booster

To further facilitate massive amounts of data transfer on the wireless network, Wi-Fi 6 uses 1024 quadrature amplitude modulation (1024 QAM), an improvement from the previous Wi-Fi 5 modulation scheme (256 QAM), to add another 2 bits of data per symbol transmitted (total of 10 bits), enabling Wi-Fi 6 to ensure high quality of service (QoS) for high-traffic venues such as sport arenas, train stations, and convention centers. That’s an impressive 25% increase in data rate throughput.

Target Wake Time

A Win-Win Situation: Enhanced Battery Life and Less Interference

Previously, data transfer was a free-for-all, with all devices fighting to transmit at the same time.
TWT now organizes time slots for devices, only transmitting when it is their time. Devices can stay in sleep mode while not transmitting, saving power and even enhancing battery life. In device-dense deployments, contention is also significantly reduced, for better all round performance.

BBS Colouring

BSS (Basic Service Set) Coloring
Wi-Fi 6 has the capacity to serve highly-populated wireless networks transmitting massive amounts of data, which means access points will likely be placed in closer proximity than ever before to ensure quality of service for users. This will result in signal coverage overlaps between access points of different wireless networks (BSS), causing signal interference and network latency to rise uncontrollably and deplete device battery power.
