How Traditional WiFi Technology Has Become Inadequate

April 21, 2022

Traditional WiFi technology is beginning to show its age and is no longer able to meet our needs. Smart devices, Internet of Things (IoT) and other data-heavy applications put a strain on traditional WiFi technology and it’s no longer able to handle the load. This results in poor connections, slow speeds and frequent dropouts.

Fortunately, next-generation WiFi technologies such as WiFi 6 (802.11ax) and intelligent WiFi mesh systems are designed to address the problems associated with traditional WiFi technology.


Next-Generation WiFi Technology

Both WiFi 6 and mesh WiFi systems are designed to improve upon the shortcomings of traditional WiFi technology and provide a better WiFi experience.

WiFi 6 is the latest WiFi standard and offers a number of significant improvements over traditional WiFi, including increased bandwidth, higher data rates, improved performance and more efficient use of spectrum.

Mesh WiFi systems are another type of next-generation WiFi technology that has been gaining in popularity in recent years. They work by using a network of interconnected nodes to create a mesh network. This results in improved WiFi performance and coverage, as well as reduced interference.


Intelligent WiFi Mesh Systems

One of the biggest advantages that an intelligent mesh WiFi system has over traditional WiFi is their use of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning. This allows them to proactively optimize the home network and connected devices to ensure top performance and connectivity.

In addition to improved performance and coverage, some intelligent Mesh WiFi systems offer enhanced Parental Controls and Online Security protection that traditional WiFi solutions are unable to offer.


WiFi 6 & Intelligent WiFi Mesh Combined

Traditional WiFi technology is no longer able to keep up with our needs. It’s slow, prone to dropouts, and can’t handle the load of modern applications. Next-generation WiFi technologies, like WiFi 6 and mesh WiFi systems, are designed to improve upon these shortcomings and provide a better experience.

So, if you’re looking for a better WiFi experience, be sure to check out Hitron’s WiFi 6 mesh WiFi system. It offers improved performance, coverage, and features that traditional WiFi can’t match.
