Older APs a Culprit in Many Wi-Fi Performance Issues

Older APs a Culprit in Many Wi-Fi Performance Issues

Aging or outdated access points (APs) are often-overlooked sources of Wi-Fi performance issues. Older devices may only have radios in the 2.4GHz spectrum, or support only 802.11a/b/g/n, which reduces their throughput capabilities. APs that have reached end of support no longer get valuable features such as 802.11r/k/v, improved channel/power management, etc. In addition, growing numbers of users can exceed the capacity of older APs.

Removing Wireless Bottlenecks with Multi-Gigabit Technology

Evolving Wi-Fi standards such as 802.11ac and 802.11ax are meant to support growing numbers of wireless devices and high-bandwidth applications by delivering marked improvements in the speed, availability and reliability of wireless networks. However, most organizations aren’t in a position to experience those benefits.

A Look at the Future of Wi-Fi, Part 2

In a previous post, we talked about the advantages of 802.11ac Wave 2 Wi-Fi products, which can deliver throughput of up to 6.77Gbps and provide increased device density. If your wireless network is critical to your operations and you’re currently using older Wi-Fi technology, you probably should be looking at Wave 2 products.

A Look at the Future of Wi-Fi, Part 1

The 802.11 wireless network standard has come a long way since the first base version was introduced in 1997. Over the past 20 years, the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) has developed a dozen different versions of the protocol, each designed to solve various problems and meet ever-increasing Wi-Fi demands.
