What’s so great about Wi-Fi 6?
In WiFi, bandwidth is shared among endpoint devices. And, when you are in a high-traffic area with lots of access points, their coverage areas will overlap. So, as you walk through someplace like an airport, you can be moving from one access point to another.
Your endpoint (phone) is one of maybe thousands of APs and endpoints yelling and hiccupping at each other trying to be heard. Get enough devices in the same area and efficiency and performance will suffer.
What an access point like the FortiAP 231-F does, is it opens up more lines for endpoints to talk on, so they don’t have to wait as long for their turn. It also allows more data into each packet, which can increase total throughput by nearly 40%. You end up with faster, more efficient performance, and even lower energy usage.
