Meet Steve, CIO of IT at a large University.  Like you, his number one priority is to deliver a stable wireless network for students and staff.  Not easy to do. Steve and his team of IT professionals struggle to keep up with ever increasing demands on the network; number of students connected, devices per student, security threats, high-density zones, and skyrocketing bandwidth as mobile is now at the center of learning and leisure.

802.11ax: Optimistic CSMA for Efficient Channel Reuse in WiFi
Posted by Hemant Chaskar on Jul 9, 2016

802.11ax is the new 802.11 standard currently in the making. Unlike earlier 802.11 standards that mainly focused on increasing raw link speeds, the design objective now is to increase airtime efficiency. One feature it introduces is OFDMA (Orthogonal Frequency-Division Multiple Access) to address the airtime inefficiency caused by short WiFi frames. The other is dynamic sensitivity control, which modifies traditional CSMA (Carrier Sense Multiple Access) to address airtime inefficiency caused by co-channel interference during channel reuse.

802.11ax: Fighting the Menace of Small Frames for Efficient WiFi

802.11ac Wave 2 is rising fast, as legacy 802.11n networks are upgraded. Current 802.11ac Wave 1 networks may not upgrade to Wave 2 right now, but by the time these networks have hit their typical 4-5 year lifespan, the next WiFi standard will be available: 802.11ax.
