Wi-Fi 6

An Internet Infrastructure Empowerment

Wi-Fi 6 is the latest Wi-Fi generation based on the IEEE 802.11ax network standard. It is a powerful upgrade from Wi-Fi 5, with faster connection speed at longer distance and higher stability.


The Wi-Fi 6 Difference

Speed and Range Performance

Wi-Fi 6 has a maximum theoretical Wi-Fi speed of 9.6 Gbps, in comparison to 3.5Gbps offered by Wi-Fi 5. It runs on both 2.4 GHz bandwidth with longer range and 5 GHz bandwidth with faster speed. Wi-Fi 6 also has significantly less signal deterioration at the inner edge of network perimeters, reducing dead zones within the coverage.

Mass device connectivity


A signature feature of Wi-Fi 6 is its multi-user, multiple-input, multiple-output technology (MU-MIMO). It processes multiple data streams from client devices simultaneously, instead of queuing network traffic into one data stream, reducing the queuing delay in high density networks.


Wi-Fi 6 uses OFDMA technology (Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiple Access). It lets multiple devices receive data from a single transmission, drastically improving the transmission efficiency when connected to multiple devices.

Minimising Signal Interference

BSS Coloring

BSS Coloring (Base Service Station Coloring) in Wi-Fi 6 improves the connection stability by minimizing the router's risk of potentially picking up signal interference. BSS Coloring measures operating Wi-Fi channel thresholds, and automatically selects a channel with loose thresholds (Minimal usage) for connectivity.

Integrating Wi-Fi 6 into Various Industries

Remote Workforce using a VPN Tunnel

Fast and reliable Wi-Fi improves work performance by minimising time wasted in uploading, downloading and encrypting network traffic.

Heavy-duty Co-working Space Wi-Fi

Internet service demand for co-working spaces can be demanding. Flint (GL-AX1800) provides powerful Wi-Fi 6 internet service along with its MU-MIMO technology, allowing multiple data streams of connection to client devices, reducing the delay on queuing for data processing.

Retail PoS using SD-WAN

Point of Sale (POS) devices can be found at almost every retail store when credit card payments are available. A fast and secure Wi-Fi connection improves customer satisfaction and protects their personal information.

Offering Public Wi-Fi in Shopping Malls

Fast Wi-Fi services leave a good impression on customers. Flint (GL-AX1800) uses Wi-Fi 6 and offers a significantly higher network bandwidth compared to Wi-Fi 5, offering faster Wi-Fi speed to more connected devices.
