Please STOP confusing Wi-Fi with 5G
 
Let me be brief: Wi-Fi - yes, the technology that you love that runs on nearly all the connected devices you own nearly all the time - has nothing to do with so-called '5G'. Even the new Wi-Fi standard (called 802.11ax and not yet finalised) also has nothing what so ever to do with '5G'.

6 GHz Wi-Fi: A windfall for wireless
 

Right now, the future of Wi-Fi is being hashed out: The 6 GHz band is the opportunity that could (finally!) connect another billion users to the Internet and spark (at least) a decade of accelerated socio-economic progress.
 
This summer, the FCC began the process of making 6 GHz available for unlicensed use. Last week, Apple, Google, Facebook, and a long list of tech leaders filed a joint report to push the FCC towards allowing Wi-Fi to operate in the 6 GHz band.

Another big week for Wi-Fi
 

The world of Wi-Fi took another giant leap forward this week with Broadcom announcing availability of 802.11ax chipsets. Qualcomm & Quantenna already released their versions of 802.11ax earlier this year.

 

The thing to understand about 802.11ax is this: It's not just 'another standard'. It's a complete revamp of how Wi-Fi works. And it will have a huge impact on the user experience.

A Big Week for Wi-Fi
 

Apple's iOS11 - due for release this fall - will support an API for 'TCP Multipath'. So what does that have to do with Wi-Fi, you say? Well, a lot, actually. It means that app developers, carriers, anyone with services running on iOS11 will finally be able to combine Wi-Fi and cellular into a single service fabric of their choosing.

Monetizing Wi-Fi Part 1: Saving millions on DAS
 

How do you monetize Wi-Fi? To answer that we are kicking off a series of blogs that will be zooming in on this issue. We will try to keep this short and sweet.

If you’ve been following telecom over the past year or two you will know that Wi-Fi Calling has now gone mainstream. Wi-Fi Calling comes in various flavors but the most important is the kind that allows you to place a call over a Wi-Fi network just like you’d place any other call (using the green phone app, for example). Most carriers in the US (and many elsewhere) now support this and some even offer this on all devices sold.

Why wait for 5G? Wi-Fi is hot & getting hotter...
 

With '5G' (whatever that is) likely more than 5 years away (if it happens) this could be a good time to point out that high-performance, low-latency, low cost wireless is already here and it's called Wi-Fi.

So why wait for 5G to happen?
