Enterprise networks have demanding performance requirements in order to support the explosive growth in network traffic. According to Cisco’s 2019 VNI Forecast, Wi-Fi traffic from both mobile devices and Wi-Fi only devices will account for over half of total IP traffic by 2022. This surge in wireless traffic on enterprise networks is driving a new generation of networking products based on the Wi-Fi 6 standard.
Wi-Fi 6 enables several new features designed to support bandwidth intensive use cases in dense Wi-Fi deployments.
Faster speeds with 1024 QAM modulation and increased network capacity with up to 12 spatial streams are critical to high performance, low-latency connectivity.
Antenna Company’s Wi-Fi 6 enterprise antenna system features a compact design that enables size reduction of enterprise access-points by 20% or more, without sacrificing antenna system performance.
Wi-Fi 6 MIMO antenna system features:
- Low input impedance essential to achieve peak rates during 1024-QAM operation
- Omni-directional pattern in the azimuth plane, ensuring uniform coverage
- Robustness against antenna de-tuning from the system environment
The antenna system supports concurrent operation of dual 5GHz radios, while achieving cross-pair antenna isolation of greater than 40 dB. In the dual-radio mode, industry-leading over-the-air speeds of up to 5.2 Gbps can be achieved. The result is a 4x improvement over previous generations.
Even with the roll-out of Wi-Fi 6, there is an ever-increasing demand for more bandwidth. New 6GHz spectrum will add 1200 MHz of bandwidth. Our embedded Wi-Fi antennas support the new 6 GHz (5.925 to 7.125GHz) spectrum.
