When to deploy WiFi 6?

Question: When to deploy Wi-Fi 6 Access Points?

Answer: This year and here is why
A lot of Companies are starting to consider when to deploy Wi-Fi 6 on there network and what the uptake will be by devices.
Last year we had almost no device use, despite two or three manufactures coming out with early product (Ruckus and Aerohive etc.)
Now we are starting to see second generation Access Points from all manufactures roll out in the next 60 days.
I think this will show in simple terms what we can expect.

I would estimate that next year we will see a jump to at least 20 % usage and perhaps as high as 50% on Wi-Fi 6. Once we hit that kind of numbers we can get back 2.4ghz and more useful bandwidth management.

I put the Pope Inauguration image to show how fast change can come. OK that was 8 years but in today’s fast replacement world of devices, by 2025 we could see all Wi-Fi 6 and or Wi-Fi 6a products being used.
