What is new in 802.11ax
802.11ax promises a lateral progression of the WiFi standard. Until now, all new WiFi specifications were focused on improving the peak data rates. 802.11ax takes a side step and promises higher efficiency rather than higher peak rates. It promises to improve the total throughput in a cell and deliver more data to the clients rather than try to improve the speed at which the data is transmitted. 802.11ax features will be available in 2.4 GHz band as well (as opposed to 802.11ac which was available only in 5GHz).

Under the Hood of Vendor Unlocked Whitebox APs
Posted by Sudhan Kayarkar on Apr 17, 2017

The data center industry has embraced hardware/software disaggregation promoted by Open Compute Project (OCP) in servers and switches. It brings benefits of cost, flexibility and innovation. OCP has now started a working group called Campus, Branch and Wireless (CBW) to extend disaggregation concept to enterprise networking. For additional details on OCP/CBW whitebox WLAN AP, see this #wlpc 2017 video presentation by @CHemantC. Mojo Networks has been an active contributor to the CBW group. At the recently concluded Open Compute Summit in Santa Clara, we demonstrated open install of Mojo WLAN software on the latest Qualcomm 802.11ac Wave 2 AP platforms manufactured by 3 different hardware vendors (ODMs).
