Wi-Fi Report 2020: The Marketplace, Technologies, Applications, Patent Survey (2016-2019), and More

DUBLIN, March 3, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- The "Wi-Fi: Extended Family: Technologies, Applications and Markets" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

https://mma.prnewswire.com/media/539438/Research_and_Markets_Logo.jpg

The goal of the report is to analyze recently introduced or still in the development of advanced Wi-Fi technologies, their applications, and the marketplace. It also surveys related industries.

In particular, it addresses such developments as:

    --  802.11n. The technology already produced a multi-billion market,
        improving such communications characteristics as the rate of
        transmission, coverage and other. It significantly increased the
        spectrum of Wi-Fi applications. In recent years, 802.11n products
        dominated the Wi-Fi market; but this technology is gradually losing its
        leading position to newer members of the Wi-Fi family, such as:
    --  60 GHz Wi-Fi - 802.11ad. This is the Wi-Fi industry response on the
        users' new requirements to support gigabits per second transmission
        rates over shorter ranges for such applications as a home/office
        distribution of HDVD and similar bandwidth-hunger applications. The
        report addresses specifics of 60 GHz channels and details WiGig/802.11ad
        technology. It also introduces the NG 60 GHz 802.11ay standard.
    --  White Spaces Wi-Fi (White Wi-Fi - 802.11af). This technology allows
        utilizing the property of sub-gigahertz transmission together with Wi-Fi
        advances. It utilizes unused windows of the TV spectrum and will work
        with Cognitive Radios.
    --  Sub - 6 GHz Wi-Fi - 802.11ac. This development allows gigabits per
        second speed and improves the characteristics of IEEE 802.11n technology
        in a wide spectrum of characteristics.
    --  Sub - 1 GHz Wi-Fi (excluding White Spaces) - 802.11ah.
    --  IEEE standard in the development: P802.11ax, which stretches Wi-Fi
        characteristics beyond imaginable just a few years ago.
    --  WAVE 802.11p - Dedicated Short Reach Communications 5.9 GHz -
        contribution of Wi-Fi to the development of the connected car.

The report details technical and marketing specifics of these types of WLAN technologies as well as surveys their industries and shows that Wi-Fi 6 is ready to meet some 5G requirements.

The report was developed for technical and managerial personnel working on the Wi-Fi-related projects to give them better understanding specifics of this family technologies and markets.

The report also includes a survey of Wi-Fi technologies related patents for 2016-2019.
