Share Article

The newly announced 6 Ghz Wi-Fi band may turn out to be the biggest WiFi news in Student Housing in a decade, and Campus Technologies has just published a new white paper to keep you up to date.

In short, for the last few years, the underlying technology that has been used in a Student Housing setting has been the 802.11ac Wave 2 standard, which is highly reliable, most residents have compatible devices and it's very much been the gold standard for residential Wi-Fi in our industry. The industry has reached a very stable and mature technology plateau that is well understood, reasonably priced, and highly reliable by using Wave 2.

On April 23rd of this year, the FCC approved a large amount of radio spectrum in the 6GHz band - never used before for Wi-Fi - to be allocated for unlicensed use.

Technically, it means less interference and more bandwidth for Wi-Fi. Practically, it means the gold standard used to date will soon become obsolete.
