Backed by years of experience helping introduce new standards to the marketplace, Intel is prepared to help drive a successful launch of 802.11ax and ensure consumers get the best possible Wi-Fi experience. For that reason, future developments like the new 802.11ax core Wi-Fi standard are focused on "increasing the overall capacity of the network". During CES, Intel and its partners announced new products that can connect, change and improve our lives to make them more convenient and enjoyable.
Any household with lots of devices connected to a central router would benefit from 802.11ax, as well.
There's good reason for the industry's enthusiasm about 802.11ax. Once completed and deployed by hardware makers in earnest, 802.11ax will deliver significant performance over 802.11ac Wi-Fi, with up to 40 percent higher peak data rates for a single client device and much better average throughput in congested areas where many wireless devices operate at the same time-Intel says its chipsets will enable up to 256 devices to share bandwidth at the same time.

FDNY puts out fire in Trump Tower HVAC system
A fire was reported Monday morning (Jan. 8) on the roof of Trump Tower in NY , according to multiple media reports. Trump Tower, located at 721 Fifth Avenue, is home to President Trump's family and is protected by Secret Service.
In contrast, infrastructure devices based on 802.11ax Draft 1.0 chipsets (or variations of Draft 1.0) may not be interoperable with client devices based on Draft 2.0 chipsets. Now multiple routers are more common, and the Wi-Fi Alliance has begun work to let multiple network devices cooperate automatically so the data gets where it needs to be without our having to manually link this phone to that router and that light bulb to that one.
"There are already more than eight devices in the average USA home" using Wi-Fi, said Kevin Robinson, vice president of marketing for the Wi-Fi Alliance.
Intel will have 802.11ax 2x2 and 4x4 routers before the end of the year. This is important since a more mature draft - Draft 2.0 or higher - will be the baseline for 802.11ax certification, and Wi-Fi CERTIFIED* is the only way to truly guarantee multivendor interoperability. The first 802.11ax chips should arrive this year, but mass adoption will occur in 2019, he added. This is due to product certification.
