Considerations for campus IT teams before upgrading to the new iteration of Wi-Fi: Opinion


The world of wi-fi is changing with the announcement of Wi-Fi 6E, writes Joel Snyder, and the latest iteration has special considerations for higher education. Snyder writes that this upcoming iteration of wi-fi makes significant improvements to connectivity in high-density areas, such as lecture hall environments and auditoriums, by serving more users and access points than before. While most users on campus will not have devices capable of using the new 6GHz spectrum, the author encourages IT teams to ensure the campus’s infrastructure is ready for the increased load before embarking on an upgrade to Wi-Fi 6E.
