Информация о продукте и производительности


Почти в 3 раза выше скорость: 802.11ax 2x2 160 МГц позволяет развить максимальную теоретическую скорость передачи данных до 2402 Мбит/с, почти в 3 раза (2,8 раза) выше, чем у стандарта 802.11ac 2x2 80 МГц (867 Мбит/с), как задокументировано в спецификациях беспроводного стандарта IEEE 802.11. Требуется использование беспроводного маршрутизатора 802.11ax со схожей конфигурацией.


В 4 раза выше пропускная способность/масштабируемость. Это заявление основано на сравнении общей пропускной способности сети 802.11ax со сравнимой по размеру сетью 802.11ac. Поправка спецификации IEEE 802.11-14/0165r1 802.11ax определяет стандартизированные модификации физических уровней (PHY) IEEE 802.11 и уровня управления доступом к среде (MAC) IEEE 802.11, которые обеспечивают хотя бы один режим работы, способный поддерживать повышение средней пропускной способности каждой станции как минимум в четыре раза (измеряется на точке доступа к службам передачи данных MAC) в условиях высокой плотности развертывания при сохранении или повышении энергоэффективности каждой станции.

Задержка на 75% ниже.Основано на данных моделирования Intel (79%) сети 802.11ax с 9 клиентами с использованием OFDMA и без нее. Среднее время задержки без OFDM составило 36 мс, а при использовании OFDMA среднее время задержки снизилось до 7,6 мс. Для снижения времени задержки необходимо, чтобы маршрутизатор 802.11ax (Wi-Fi 6) и все клиенты поддерживали использование OFDMA.
