“With the new naming scheme, the recent versions 802.11ac named as Wi-Fi 5 and 802.11n as Wi-Fi 4. The generation names can be used by product vendors to identify the latest Wi-Fi technology a device supports, by OS vendors to identify the generation of Wi-Fi connection between a device and network, and by service providers to identify the capabilities of a Wi-Fi network to their customers.”

Benefits of Wi-Fi 6

“For nearly two decades, Wi-Fi users have had to sort through technical naming conventions to determine if their devices support the latest Wi-Fi,” said Edgar Figueroa, president, and CEO of Wi-Fi Alliance.”

The new icons help users in moving between their Wi-Fi networks if it indicates 6 then the user is having a Wi-Fi 6 connection.

`”Wi-Fi technology has evolved and improved over the last 21 years – from only a few megabits to several Gigabit speeds – yet this information is currently not provided. With Wi-Fi 6, consumers can easily identify the level of Wi-Fi provided and demand superior services.”
