NewsGeneralRead Official certification for WiFi 6 now available By Robin Leigh Chetty

On Monday, the Wi-Fi Alliance launched its official Wi-Fi 6 certification program. "Wi-Fi CERTIFIED 6 will deliver improvements in connectivity, including in high density locations and IoT environments".

The Wi-Fi Alliance has officially kicked off its Wi-Fi 6 certification program. More and more new smartphones, routers, and other wireless devices that will be released in the coming weeks and months will be Wi-Fi 6 certified. You could, ahem, read my full Wi-Fi 6 explainer to better understand lingo like that - or, you could simply trust the little badge.

The WiFi Alliance confirm that Samsung's Galaxy Note 10 will be the first smartphone certified for the new standard.

The new "high-efficiency wireless" standard has several features that combine to make it up to 37-percent faster than 802.11ac in single-user scenarios.

Though the standard - a mix of new hardware and software - has been slowly implemented throughout the past year, the first certifications mark an unprecedented stamp of approval for WiFi 6 and will likely herald in a more widespread adoption.

WiFi 6 also lays the groundwork for 5G home networks too, with the WiFi Alliance saying today that this certification "delivers critical connectivity that supports cellular networks, and leverages high speeds, low latency, power efficiency, greater capacity, and enhanced coverage to deliver many advanced 5G services".

Unveiled past year in October, Wi-Fi 6 (also known as 802.11ax) launches officially today with up to 37 percent faster speeds than the previous Wi-Fi generation (802.11ac), increased bandwidth for greater performance with low latency, higher data rates for greater network capacity, as well as MU-MIMO (Multi-User Multiple Input Multiple Output) support for greater download performance on more devices at once. Samsung and Netgear did not wait for the certification to begin.

Since Wi-Fi 6 requires changes to hardware, most now sold devices will not be certified. However, the marketing opportunity provided should incentivize companies to start switching to Wi-Fi 6. this accelerated adoption means we will likely see more device makers switching to the new standard.

WiFi 6 is a new standard in WiFi technology that is promising better speeds and more. Still, device certification should help pave the way for 2020 and beyond. Wi-Fi 6 ratification from the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), the industry group that maintains and develops wireless standards, is expected to happen later this fall.
