Wi-Fi 6 – A growth catalyst for SMEs

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Wi-Fi has become an indispensable amenity for any user-facing outfit, irrespective of its size. Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) with limited resources are looking for Access Solutions, which are easier to install and manage and create a high-performing and highly secure environment. They have very well understood the importance of digitising their operations to target, serve and delight their customers and help put their business at an advantage.

Having high-speed internet connectivity is crucial for small to medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) to compete in the business world. A fast and reliable internet connection can prove vital in solving major connectivity issues and give a much-needed impetus to a growing business. This, perhaps, makes a wireless router the most crucial piece of hardware in any office. For small businesses, the router is literally the lifeline of their bottom line. They are typically those parts of an office infrastructure that no one really gives much thought to until something kaput, and employees have to switch to their often patchy mobile hotspot. For several years there hasn’t been a dramatic shift in how these routers work… till now.

With the release of Wi-Fi 6 along with its new security protocol – WPA3, small businesses are set to receive a significant boost in how they experience the internet. It can be described as both an evolutionary and revolutionary standard. We know for a fact that it would provide way faster speeds and more reliable connections. It’s also capable of handling massive data flow across multiple devices without lag or drop in speed. That’s because Wi-Fi 6 can offer maximum speeds of up to 9.6 Gbps, which is almost 250% more than the maximum speed of 3.5Gbps, offered by Wi-Fi 5. This in turn will enhance productivity while offering high-performing connectivity. 

So is Wi-Fi 6 truly worth it?

The answer is a big YES! Wi-Fi 6 represents a giant technological leap, and if you’re in an industry dependent on high internet speeds, then switching to Wi-Fi 6 is can provide the boost that your business needs. Maximise your productivity and minimise the operational impedance with the following benefits:

  • Blazing Fast Speeds
    Wi-Fi 6 is almost 37% faster than Wi-Fi 5 because it offers more bandwidth for its traffic. Think of it as expanding a three-lane highway into six lanes, thereby allowing more cars to go through.
  • Vastly Improved Security
    One of the most significant benefits of businesses switching to Wi-Fi 6 is its security updates. Hackers would now find it almost impossible to run a cracking program and gain unauthorised access to a network. With almost ironclad encryption and authentication protocol, companies dealing with sensitive information would definitely find it to their advantage to switch over to Wi-Fi 6.
  • A Boon for Multiple Devices
    With added features like the OFDMA and smarter use of MU-MIMO, Wi-Fi 6 can comfortably handle multiple devices. While earlier, each device had to wait for the other connected devices to complete the data transfers resulting in slower speeds, Wi-Fi 6 offers each device its own exclusive data stream to send and receive data packets from the router simultaneously. This results in zero delays and lags when your Wi-Fi is called upon to serve multiple devices.
