Digital-content consumption is on a steep incline, with video content expected to reach approximately 90 percent of global consumer traffic, according to Cisco’s 2011 Visual Networking Index Forecast. At the same time, Internet traffic is shifting rapidly from wired to wireless networks. The increased reliance on wireless networks, the explosion of video consumption and the growing number of wireless devices being used are all putting tremendous stress on legacy 802.11a/b/g/n networks. As a result, consumers are prone to experience deteriorated performance, choppy videos and slower load times.
5G WiFi overcomes this digital content and wireless device challenge. With new innovations that allow for more reliable whole home coverage, 5G WiFi will allow consumers to stream digital content between devices faster, and simultaneously connect more wireless devices to home and enterprise networks, while conserving battery power.
