Next Generation Of Wi-Fi Mesh Could Change How We See The IoT And Smart Home Tech
A distributed Wi-Fi indoor infrastructure transforms the way we see our smart home and IoT. We all face connectivity issues with our current Wi-Fi infrastructure. With the Wi-Fi IEEE 802.11ax standard soon to be released, we can safely say that our houses will have a much bigger capacity for wireless connectivity. Challenges with the previous versions include avoiding interference, reliable range, and increased data rates. Neither could a repeater be used as it adds interference and does not add to the user experience.
Instead, we believe that distributing Wi-Fi or placing a Pod in Every Room™ is a better approach to yield whole-home coverage. In short, you equip every room in a house with a pod that serves as a wireless access point. The pod connects to the router, which then connects to the internet.
Another issue is that of keeping balancing the data hierarchy. The speed of the data entering the house is lower than the transmissions needed between access points and smart devices.
IEEE 802.11ax will also increase the data throughout while concentrating on a higher capacity within the home. Technologies designed to reduce interference also enable multiple radio systems within a smart home. The pods would connect the IoT devices easily and offer more channels of connection as well.
