Wi-Fi 6 / 6E

Wi-Fi has become indispensable due to the arrival of IoT (Internet-of-Things) in which various "things" are connected to the internet, cashless payments, smart speakers, and the introduction of IT in medical care. In addition, technologies such as AI (Artificial Intelligence) and ICT (Information and Communication Technology), which require enormous amounts of information processing, are expected to be used more and more in the future, and there is an increasing demand for improved stability of the communication environment.

With the development of communication technologies such as Wi-Fi 6 / 6E, which are new wireless communication standards, high-speed, large-capacity communication, and the stability of wireless communication when connected simultaneously by a large number of communication devices have been improved, and unified communication has been achieved. Cloud computing, AR (Augmented Reality) / VR (Virtual Reality), telepresence, and other content that requires large-capacity data communication will become more familiar to use.
