WiFi 6E

WiFi6e: Expanding the boundaries of wireless LAN by expanding to the 6GHz band

Improve ease-of-deployment with unique technologies

Build a WiFi 6 environment by utilizing a wide range of frequency bands

More usage scenarios in wireless LAN environment.

WiFi6e, launched in 2020 by the industry association WiFi Alliance, is an extension of the WiFi6 (IEEE 802.11ax) certification standard to the newly released 6 GHz.

Many countries around the world are beginning to use the 6 GHz band with its release.

With the release of this 6GHz band, more channels will be available to avoid congestion in the 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands, used for  dense and interfering current radio and wireless that is not affected by DFS (Dynamic Frequency Selection) caused by aviation/weather radar.

WiFi6e makes wireless LAN more  accessible than ever before and is expected to be used in a wide range of usage scenarios. Allied Telesis combines WiFi6e with proprietary solutions to provide a more flexible and scalable wireless LAN environment.

Build a comfortable wireless LAN environment autonomously

The addition of the 6GHz band will significantly increase the number of wireless channels. Therefore, by combining this with AWC, which uses game theory to autonomously create an optimal wireless environment based on the surrounding radio wave environment, access points will be able to use wireless LAN more easily than ever before.

Realizing a seamless roaming environment

By increasing the capacity of the AWC-CB, which is ideal for connecting smartphones and other mobile devices, with WiFi6e, more devices can be comfortably connected to the network. AWC-CB* achieves a seamless roaming environment by having multiple access points use the same channel. Even if you cover a wide area and increase the number of connected devices, WiFi6e’s high-speed communication eliminates bottlenecks and provides  stable communication without reducing communication speed.

*AWC-CB will be support in TQ7403.

Extending communication without the need for wiring

AWC-SC* is our technology that expands the wireless LAN area without cables. By increasing the number of channels with WiFi6e, the range of use of AWC-SC will also expand. By using the 6GHz band as a backhaul for connecting access points and the 2.4GHz/5GHz band for connecting devices, we create a fast and stable wireless LAN environment that allows even devices that do not support the 6GHz band to connect.

High number of  devices in the education institutions

In educational institutions,  multiple devices are connected at the same time, such as in classrooms to download teaching materials, so bandwidth is constrained due to increased communication volumes. The problems caused by 2.4GHz/5GHz band are  the small number of channels available and radio wave interference between classrooms.

In some cases, issues such as radio wave outage due to DFS influenced by weather radar may become an issue.

WiFi6e allows you to use the 6GHz band, which has less congestion and radio wave interference, and is free from signal interruption due to DFS. Bandwidth is expanded by bundling vacant channels with channel bonding, allowing for safe high-speed, high-capacity communication even when many people connect at the same time. Additionally, Allied Telesis wireless LAN access points can automatically avoid radio wave interference from neighboring classrooms using AWC, which autonomously adjusts radio wave output and channels.

Stable and safe wireless LAN in the hospitals

In hospitals, a variety of wireless devices are connected to the network, and radio interference from tethering devices brought in by patients causes many problems, such as signal interruption when the devices are carried by doctors and nurses and are not stable because they move around so much. Furthermore, expensive medical equipment may be difficult to replace frequently and may only support up to the 2.4GHz band. While  providing free WiFi for patients is necessary, security is a must to be ensured.
Allied Telesis’ WiFi6e compatible wireless LAN access points can avoid radio wave interference using the 6GHz band and provide a seamless roaming environment suitable for mobile terminals using AWC-CB*.

In addition to using the 6Ghz band, the 2.4GHz band can be used for medical equipment, and the 5GHz band can be used for reception and free WiFi. Security settings can be divided for each radio to ensure safe WiFi for patients. It is possible to provide WiFi.

Indoor and outdoor wireless LAN requirements in factories

The wireless LAN requirements  in factories can be complicated due to many moving devices such as AGVs, handheld terminals used in warehouses, and conveyor belts. Due to the large size of the factories, wireless coverage will require more access points to be deployed.  When multiple buildings are located on a large site, there is a requirement to avoid LAN wiring between buildings.

Allied Telesis’ WiFi6e compatible wireless LAN access points can use AWC-CB* in either the 6GHz or 5GHz band depending on the situation, creating a seamless roaming environment without any packet loss. In addition, AWC-CB does not cause wireless interference between access points, it is possible to arrange access points at high density. Directional patch antennas enable long-distance WDS (access point-to-access point communication), making it possible to construct a LAN even in places where wiring is not possible.

Wireless LAN requirements in Government segment

High  staff turnover rate and office layout changes are common, resulting in wiring changes and reviewing channel designs a huge hassle. Furthermore, it is necessary to provide free WiFi to residents in the event of a disaster. With Allied Telesis’ wireless LAN access point, you can easily create a wireless LAN environment using AWC-SC* without any wiring work. Stable communication is achieved by using the 6GHz band as a backhaul to connect access points and connecting devices using the 5GHz band. When providing free WiFi outdoors during a disaster, you can use patch antennas to send radio waves further.
