Re: Why not dial it straight to eleven?
@Susan that is very true. Accordingly, we have to not take presentations at face value.

Mostly everything in the world is an inflated massive sales pitch.

Re: Why not dial it straight to eleven?
I wonder how much of this is actually different or "game-changing" and how much of it just a sales pitch to sell hardware. 

"If you think your WiFi is great now, just wait until you try WiFi 6."

"Why is it Wifi 6?"

"Well...Because...6 sounds like more than 5."

Re: Why not dial it straight to eleven?
I didn’t realise there was a Wi-FI 1-5 either. How can it be?

Next generation WiFi is going to need to adapt to 5G too
Unlicensed wireless networks are going to need to carve out their niche even more when 5G networks deploy and blur the lines between fixed and mobile wireless services....

Consumers are buying millions of IoT devices, from smart thermostats and security systems to intelligent entertainment setups and furniture. Yet many of these devices remain isolated because home users are uncomfortable connecting them to each other – or even their WiFi. After all, their WiFi network was probably designed only to handle a few laptops, a gaming system and a couple of smartphones. Now, demand on the network is surging and even though you're delivering 100 Mbps to 1 Gbps, that doesn't necessarily mean the broadband power is in the right place or reaches every corner of a home.

Even if WiFi coverage is sufficient, typing is not on trend. Voice is far more natural, easier and faster. Using a TV keyboard is archaic when more and more households have access to cloud-based voice services, like Amazon Alexa. This webinar will explore how service providers can create a comfortable, truly smart home for consumers – simultaneously driving up margin and loyalty.
