The world of enterprise wireless connectivity is changing fast, 5G and Wi-Fi 6 are part of the new generation of Internet access technologies. With each their advantages, how are they different and what can we expect from their use?
Wifi and 5G are complementary
While Wi-Fi and 5G seem to be competing wireless technologies. Both are distinct networking protocols for wireless local area networking, after all. However, Wifi 6 and 5G complement one another rather than compete against one another. Here’s how:
5G is better suited for industrial use cases
The majority of industrial applications require a certain level of performance which can be very challenging to achieve with Wi-Fi standards currently available. Here’s how 5G compares to Wifi for industrial use cases:
