Xiaomi will accompany the new Xiaomi Mi 10 that add Wifi 6 from its first router created to offer the maximum in Wi-Fi connectivity performance . This router that we already know a lot of data has been seen and shows that it is a true connectivity monster. Xiaomi again details more features than will be its most powerful Wifi router on the market and that arrives to offer maximum power in connectivity with the Mi 10 that will be presented on the 13th in China. Xiaomi confirms that its Xiaomi Mi Router Wifi 6 AIoT AX3600 router is equipped with the Qualcomm 4-core A53 enterprise chipset, a professional processor that will make it highly relevant in the router market.
Xiaomi states that this is the first router that uses this business chip for the consumer market. It has more processing power and more stable operation than the versions currently on the market. This Xiaomi Mi Router Wifi 6 is expected to be a bestseller within the most demanding public.
The 802.11 series of standards released by the IEEE can be divided into 6 generations so far. The latest 802.11ax is called WiFi 6, with a maximum throughput of 9.6Gbps. In terms of speed, WiFi 6 is 2.7 times faster than WiFi 5 (802.11ac, released in 2012) and 16 times faster than WiFi 4 (most commonly used 802.11n, released in 2009).
Xiaomi has commented that the new Xiaomi Mi router AX3600 of the new generation Xiaomi AIoT AX3600 supports dual band concurrency with a theoretical speed of up to 2976Mbps; supports OFDMA technology, which transmits data for multiple terminal devices at the same time in a transmission, which is more efficient; Support MU-MIMO technology, router Multiple antennas can serve multiple devices at the same time, and the user’s Internet experience is more fluid. Xiaomi said the Xiaomi AIoT AX3600 is the perfect partner for Xiaomi 10 and Mi 10 Pro. The new Xiaomi Mi router AX3600 will be equipped with 512 MB of memory to store data for its operation.
It is expected that the new 802.11ax standard (Wifi 6) that will incorporate this new Mi router solves one of the biggest problems of the current WiFi connection: the spectrum crunch or spectrum saturation, which causes slowness and greater latency in the network when there are many devices connected.
This is normal today due to an increased demand for data use, since WiFi is a shared medium. In the WiFi connections devices have to transmit in turns, so when one is retransmitting the signal, the rest must remain at rest.
Unlike the current protocol, WiFi 5 (802.11ac), which only works in the 5GHz band, WiFi 6 can operate simultaneously in both the 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands. This means that the devices will have more channels to locate, and therefore, there will be less saturation even if more elements are connected.
In addition, WiFi 6 uses a technology that increases the amount of data that can be sent and received simultaneously.
This technology, called “Orthogonal Frequency-Division Multiple Access” (OFDMA) is a system that distributes the bandwidth of the channels, subdividing them, and thus allowing them to be used by several clients or devices instead of only one as it has been so far with previous protocols.
This allows connections to be much faster and offering less latency when there are many devices connected at the same time.
Another of the technologies on which WiFI 6 and Xiaomi Mi 10 are supported to improve the user experience is MU-MIMO, which has already been used previous standards. This technology is what allows WiFi routers to communicate with several devices simultaneously, and with WiFi6 it will be much more efficient.
WiFi 5 allowed transmission from the router to four devices and now WiFi 6 expands the capacity of MU-MIMO up to 8 devices.
- BSS color
Color BSS, also known as BSS coloration, is a method that assigns different colors to each network. In this way, identification is much simpler for access points and they may take less time to decide whether they connect or not. It also prevents too much interference.
Color BSS facilitates and improves the transmission capacity of the equipment, frees traffic in the air and bandwidth is used more efficiently, without collapses or interference.
Compatibility between products with Wifi 6 and other generations of Wifi
The new WiFi 6 standard will be compatible with the previous protocols . This means that if you buy the new Xiaomi router or other options that are already available in the market , your current devices can connect to it without problem.
However, you must keep in mind that in order to enjoy the advantages that WiFi 6 offers that we have seen a few lines above, it is necessary that both the router and the device that is connected through it, be compatible with WiFi 6. That is why that Xiaomi launches the Mi 10 with this router so that the user buys both products and can enjoy the latest technology.
We hope to have all the data of the new Mi router with Wifi 6 on the 13th of this month in its presentation in China along with the Mi 10 and more surprises that Xiaomi can keep under the top
