Wi-Fi 6 certification is here, marks evolution in delivery of Wi-Fi connectivity



  • alt text

    The Wi-Fi CERTIFIED 6™ certification program from Wi-Fi Alliance® is now available and delivers the best user experience with devices based on IEEE 802.11ax. The certification program brings new features and capabilities that enable substantially greater overall Wi-Fi® network performance in challenging environments with many connected devices such as stadiums, airports, and industrial parks. With adoption of the latest Wi-Fi generation increasing, product vendors and service providers can trust Wi-Fi CERTIFIED™ will distinguish Wi-Fi 6 products and networks that meet the highest standards for security and interoperability. Wi-Fi CERTIFIED 6 provides significant capacity, performance, and latency improvements to the entire Wi-Fi ecosystem, while ensuring products across vendors to work well together to deliver greater innovation and opportunity.

    Wi-Fi CERTIFIED 6 supports a more diverse set of devices and applications, from those requiring peak performance in demanding enterprise environments to those requiring low power and low latency in smart homes or industrial IoT scenarios. Wi-Fi CERTIFIED 6 delivers nearly four times the capacity of Wi-Fi 5, and is an evolutionary advancement for Wi-Fi’s ability to deliver high-performance infrastructure and optimized connectivity to all devices on a network simultaneously – bringing noticeable improvements in densely connected Wi-Fi environments. Wi-Fi CERTIFIED 6 delivers critical connectivity that supports cellular networks, and leverages high speeds, low latency, power efficiency, greater capacity, and enhanced coverage to deliver many advanced 5G services.

    Wi-Fi CERTIFIED 6 delivers advanced security protocols and requires the latest generation of Wi-Fi security, Wi-Fi CERTIFIED WPA3™. Advanced capabilities available in Wi-Fi CERTIFIED 6 include:

    • Orthogonal frequency division multiple access (OFDMA): effectively shares channels to increase network efficiency and lower latency for both uplink and downlink traffic in high demand environments

    • Multi-user multiple input multiple output (MU-MIMO): allows more downlink data to be transferred at once and enables an access point to transmit data to a larger number of devices concurrently

    • 160 MHz channels: increases bandwidth to deliver greater performance with low latency
      Target wake time (TWT): significantly improves battery life in Wi-Fi devices, such as Internet of Things (IoT) devices

    • 1024 quadrature amplitude modulation mode (1024-QAM): increases throughput in Wi-Fi devices by encoding more data in the same amount of spectrum

    *Transmit beamforming: enables higher data rates at a given range resulting in greater network capacity

    Hey guys, we are thrilled to announce the speaker Mr. Brian Douglas for our upcoming event organised by HackClub TIST as part of Hacktoberfest 2020. He will guide you through GitHub and the importance of Open Source contributions.

    Mr. Brian Douglas has been working as a Staff Developer Advocate at GitHub for the past three years and was fully on-board with us when we contacted him about the event.

    We at Hackclub TIST strongly believe in the power of collaboration and how even the smallest guidance can have a huge impact in the long run.

    So register now at http://hackclubtist.tech/hacktoberfest and lets git learning (pun intended).

    @Anudeep Thanks a lot m8, I actually made a very silly mistake of including the https:// while entering FIREBASE_HOST, where I must have entered the Domain name alone and removed the https:// extension.

    Thanks again for replying that quick. Cheers.

    Hello @Palani, In the Firebase, there are two types of storage,

    Cloud Firestore (Very recent one & NoSQL database) Realtime Database (To which we upload the data using NodeMCU)

    In the Arduino Code, you can see that there is a variable named FIREBASE_AUTH.

    This variable should be assigned to the Database secret. This you can find in Project Settings -> Service accounts -> Database Secrets.

    My mistake is, i have mistakenly assigned thay to Web API key. This is found at Project Settings -> General.

    The error can also occur when u don't initialise a proper realtime database in Firebase. (This is not my case).
