Huawei has reported that the Dell’Oro Group, an independent market analysis and research firm, has ranked Huawei Wi-Fi 6 number one in the global Wi-Fi 6 indoor AP market around the world except in North America. The findings, which were published in a report, cover the period from 2018 Q3 to 2019 Q3.
Wi-Fi 6 is a designation assigned in October 2018 by the Wi-Fi Alliance. It is part of the new Wi-Fi naming system for Wi-Fi generations and Wi-Fi 6 is the simplified name for IEEE 802.11ax. Wi-Fi 6 allows for greater client bandwidth, allows for more concurrent clients, and lowers the latency by three times when compared to Wi-Fi 5.
Dell’Oro Group’s report found that Wi-Fi 6 saw big growth in 2019 while Wi-Fi 4 and Wi-Fi 5 saw their markets decrease slightly. Huawei’s Wi-Fi 6 product is called the AirEngine Wi-Fi 6 and is powered by Huawei 5G. The Chinese firm said its product allows customers to build Wi-Fi 6 networks “with zero coverage holes, zero wait time, and zero packet loss during roaming.”
Commenting on the firm’s product, Steven Zhao, President of Campus Network Domain, Huawei’s Data Communication Product Line, said:
“We are very pleased to see that Huawei AirEngine Wi-Fi 6 has been widely used across sectors like education, government, large enterprises, and manufacturing. Huawei AirEngine Wi-Fi 6 is helping more enterprises of all sizes to build user experience-centric networks for increased office and production efficiencies, paving the way for the large-scale rollout of digital services and accelerating digital transformation.”
To keep its lead, Huawei said that in future it will work with partners in the industry to deliver “ideal” Wi-Fi 6 network solutions for the new digital applications the future may bring. It will also continue to iterate on its AirEngine Wi-Fi series powered by Huawei 5G to deliver future-proof networks suitable for enterprise.
