Open WiFi, HaLow, Wi-Fi 6, and more
About this event:
Wi-Fi seems to be the perfect broadband connectivity option. Today’s session we will explore the latest in Wi-Fi innovations. Open Wi-Fi is gaining traction in the market, in part due to the Technology Infra-Project (TIP) led by Meta. Wi-Fi HaLow or 802.11AH is coming soon to smart door locks, security cameras, wearable devices, and wireless sensor networks near you. Despite the ubiquity of Wi-Fi 4/5/6, the rapid growth of the Internet of Things (IoT) has forced a rethinking of traditional Wi-Fi. The exciting new standard HaLow seems to have great promise.
The WCA invites you to listen in as the select panel of experts explore these latest Wi-Fi innovations, and answer your questions.
