Wi-Fi Evolutionary Roads 2018: Technologies, Applications and Markets - 802.11n is Gradually Losing Its Leading Position -

The "Wi-Fi Evolutionary Roads - Technologies, Applications and Markets" report has been added to's offering.

This report addresses advanced developments in one of the most established and powerful wireless technology - Wi-Fi.

Originated in the 20th century, this WLAN family belongs to a very small group of communications technologies that are not getting obsolete with time. The family continues to grow, adding new members that bring WLAN to the forefront of today's innovations in communications with multiple applications and increasing the limits in performance.

The report details technical and marketing specifics of these types of WLAN technologies as well as surveys their industries. The report also includes the survey of 2016-2018 patents related to discussed technologies.

The report's goal is to analyze recently introduced, or still in development, advanced Wi-Fi technologies, their applications and marketplace. It also surveys related industries.

In particular, it addresses such developments as:

802.11n. The technology already produced a multi-billion market, improving such communications characteristics as the rate of transmission, coverage and other. It significantly increased the spectrum of Wi-Fi applications. In the recent years, 802.11n products dominated the Wi-Fi market; but this technology is gradually losing its leading position to newer members of the Wi-Fi family, such s:

  • 60 GHz Wi-Fi - 802.11ad. This is the Wi-Fi industry response on the users' new requirements to support gigabits per second transmission rates over shorter ranges for such applications as a home/office distribution of HDVD and similar bandwidth-hunger applications. The report addresses specifics of 60 GHz channels and details WiGig/802.11ad technology. It also introduces NG 60 GHz 802.11ay standard.
  • White Spaces Wi-Fi (White Wi-Fi - 802.11af). This technology allows utilizing the property of sub-gigahertz transmission together with Wi-Fi advances. It utilizes unused windows of the TV spectrum and in a future will work with Cognitive Radios.
  • Sub - 6 GHz Wi-Fi - 802.11ac. This development allows gigabits per second speed and improves characteristics of IEEE (News - Alert) 802.11n technology in the wide spectrum of characteristics.
  • Sub - 1 GHz Wi-Fi (excluding White Spaces) - 802.11ah.
  • IEEE standards in the development: P802.11ax, which stretch Wi-Fi characteristics beyond imaginable just a few years ago.
  • WAVE 802.11p - Dedicated Short Reach Communications 5.9 GHz - contribution of Wi-Fi to the development of the connected car.
  • and others...
