Max WiFi implements Uplink and Downlink OFDMA technology, which is the fundamental building block of 802.11ax and Multi-User MIMO technology to increase channel capacity when servicing multiple simultaneous devices. It also supports Spatial Reuse, which allows access points to more efficiently share channel capacity by making intelligent decisions on when to transmit data.
Broadcom claims that Max WiFi chips enable up to four times faster download speeds, six times faster upload speeds, four times better coverage, and seven times better battery life than similar Wi-Fi solutions on the market today that use 802.11ac.
The sixth generation WiFi chips can be used in Wi-Fi routers, residential gateways, enterprise access points, and client devices that deliver next generation Wi-Fi. Max WiFi supports delivery of simultaneous video, voice, data and IOT services to an ever-increasing number of wireless devices.
This means that steady, high-speed Wi-Fi with unprecedented quality of service is available wherever consumers want it: homes, offices and high-traffic public venues such as stadiums. Max WiFi’s unique architecture is also optimized for internet upload, making social media live-streaming and cloud storage seamless.
According to Broadcom, the demand for high performance Wi-Fi in the home is growing unabated with a typical family of four expected to have an average of 50 connected devices by 2022. At the same time, the amount of media content exchanged among mobile devices through the cloud has increased exponentially.
