Wi-Fi 6 is here and it's impressive

Posted by Guest Blogger on Jun 30, 2021 10:46:00 AM

By Brian Van Meter, marketing manager at Grandstream

Wi-Fi 6, also known as 802.11ax, was released in 2019. It has only now begun to see mainstream adoption as the go-to Wi-Fi standard for Wi-Fi manufacturers and businesses alike. Although it may be more expensive, Wi-Fi 6 access points deliver key advantages over Wi-Fi 5. 801.11ax performs up to 4x better in denser environments than its 802.11ac (Wi-Fi 5) counterpart. Wi-Fi 6 is also designed to better manage multiple types of Wi-Fi devices that are simultaneously connecting to an access point. Lastly, according to chip manufactures, Wi-Fi 6 delivers up to 3x faster performance.

There are two major Wi-Fi 6 features that make all of this possible: MU-MIMO and OFDMA.

LTE technologies at the service of WISPs

Posted by Daniel Noworatzky on Jun 2, 2021 10:42:00 AM

Wireless Internet Service Providers (WISPs) have traditionally relied on the use of Wi-Fi technologies that leverage unlicensed frequency ranges of 2.4 and 5 GHz, along with all of the legal limitations that come with them. Recently, however, additional connectivity options have been made available and much more affordable to WISPs. Among those options is the use of Long Term Evolution (LTE) solutions. In this article, we examine how WISPs can use LTE for their networks, which was a topic of particular interest at WISPAMERICA this year.

VoIP over cellular data networks

Posted by Daniel Noworatzky on Sep 23, 2020 10:48:00 AM

Now that working from home and dispersed workforces have become the new norm, connecting employees’ or company-issued smartphones to the enterprise IP PBX offers several advantages, including the ability to reach employees via their direct inward dial (DID) landline numbers, even though they are physically off-premise.

The technology that enables this is called VoIP over cellular data networks. In this article we detail how to enable it, the advantages of doing so and some potential issues to watch out for.

Common Wi-Fi security threats and how to mitigate them

Posted by Daniel Noworatzky on Aug 21, 2019 10:49:00 AM

Wi-Fi itself should not be feared as a technology susceptible to network attacks; it is a flawed implementation that should be feared. Because of the nature of the technology, Wi-Fi signals can be easily intercepted by any wireless device within range. Nevertheless, with the proper security precautions in place, these intercepted signals become useless to even the most determined attacker. By employing industry-standard security measures, Wi-Fi becomes an enterprise-grade high-performance solution suitable for almost any application.

In this article, we examine the the most pervasive threats to Wi-Fi networks and the best ways to mitigate them.
