It’s not a secret that the growth of companies depend upon the efficiency as well as quality in their infrastructure.

From collaboration to communication workers are now accustomed to an efficient Wi-Fi network that can power the devices they rely on the most to get the task accomplished. This includes video conference, digitally enhanced customer experiences remote work, and many more, which often compete for bandwidth on one network.

In the end, the need for more speed and scale spurred the most current standard of connectivity: Wi-Fi 6 that supports more devices and has faster connections to increase productivity wherever work occurs. This is accomplished through:

  • A more efficient use of channels, putting information into smaller units of resource and airtime. This permits simultaneous rather than separate rapid-fire connections
  • More bandwidth to provide a higher throughput ceiling and improved overall connectivity
  • Improvements to both the 2.4 5 GHz and 2.4 GHz wireless radios

Because of the ever-increasingly complex and sophisticated cyber-attacks, Wi-Fi 6 certified devices and platforms also come with the most current encryption technology to safeguard consumer and employee information in a digitally-driven environment.

However small and medium-sized companies (SMBs) using older networks struggle to make use of Wi-Fi 6. In reality, they face issues with performance, and often have to deal with user complaints, forcing lean IT teams to concentrate on simple troubleshooting tasks.

As the Wi-Fi 6-related ecosystem of devices and platforms has reached maturity and is widely adopted in the majority of SMBs moving for Wi-Fi 6 will be not more a matter of “if” rather “when.”

The Aruba access points (APs) specifically designed to serve SMBs are compatible with the most recent wave in Wi-Fi innovations, increasing the reliability, capacity, and quality of the business network. Aruba’s APs also feature state-of-the-art security measures to safeguard crucial functions of business. These enhancements include:

  • AirMatch and ClientMatch These are patent-pending improvement in reliability and performance that target Wi-Fi gaps as well as sticky client behavior. They enable seamless coverage from corner-to-corner
  • Flexible management via cloud and on-prem options and a controllerless instant AP mode
  • Simple setup with Zero-Touch Provisioning that automatically configures settings for new APs to enable plug-and-play deployment.
  • Securer password security through WPA3 encryption and improved open standards that block non-authenticated devices from connecting to the network

If you have the right network, Wi-Fi 6 has up to four times the capacity.
