Wi-Fi 6 – Separating the magic from the myth

Presented by

Bill McFarland, CTO, Plume & John Kendall, Analyst, Omdia

About this talk

The worldwide rollout of Wi-Fi 6 and Wi-Fi 6E is underway. But what benefits do the latest evolutions of Wi-Fi technology bring to broadband service providers? As we all appreciate, perception often differs greatly from reality – we've heard many perceptions of Wi-Fi 6, from "it's the solution for all in-home connectivity" to "it's simply a generational step and no big deal." But where does the myth end and the magic begin? As promising as these new Wi-Fi technologies appear to be, they are not a panacea, a one-stop solution for all subscriber connectivity issues and the delivery of new personalized services. Instead, service providers must find ways to pair Wi-Fi 6 and Wi-Fi 6E with sophisticated cloud control and optimization smarts so they can truly fulfill the dream of the next-gen smart home. In this webinar, we separate the magic from the myth as experts from Plume, service providers and market research firms discuss the promise of the new Wi-Fi specs, explore the opportunities they offer, examine the issues they raise and tackle what else providers must do to optimize the smart home experience for their subscribers.
