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).
