Insights into Wi-Fi Technology
Despite being introduced back in 2008, devices of the Wi-Fi 4 technology standard still represent over 35% of all connected devices in North America, and there is a small percentage of even older legacy devices! More recent generation devices and soon the latest standard (Wi-Fi 7) will all have to connect to the same home network as legacy devices, despite having very different capabilities. Managing this complexity is one of the key challenges for service providers and requires a robust cloud-based mechanism to ensure all devices get their fair share of Wi-Fi airtime.
