Intel has announced 802.11ax chipsets for faster Wi-Fi

That's why Intel has always committed our technical and commercial expertise to the development of Wi-Fi standards and to offering leading Wi-Fi products. But you could benefit from a different new priority that might be more important these days: reliability.

The newest - and most exciting - IEEE standard for Wi-Fi, 802.11ax, is coming soon.

Analysts predict that by 2020, the global market for smart home technology will reach $100 billion1 and the average home will have more than 35 connected devices.2 But with the rapid proliferation of connected devices and experiences, it's no longer enough to simply be connected. You've seen us in the past show you the Wi-Fi certification awarded to a new device by the Wi-Fi Alliance. In 2018, Intel will expand its home Wi-Fi portfolio with new 802.11ax chipsets for mainstream 2x2 and 4x4 home routers and gateways for cable, xDSL, fiber and consumer retail devices.

Acer and HP unveil new Chromebooks ahead of CES
Compared to the previous Chromebook 11 series from the house of Acer , the new Chromebook will be more portable and compact. Chrome OS provides additional security since it's automatically updated to guard against ever-changing online threats.

Intel has announced that it will have new 802.11ax chipsets ready within the year for next generation Wi-Fi, expected to deliver up to 40 percent higher peak data rates for a single client device in addition to an improved performance in dense or congested environments with a lot of connected devices. Certain chips from Intel to be released this year will support the new standard.

In olden days, most of us got by with one Wi-Fi access point beaming data around our house, and tough luck if your bedroom happened to be too many walls away to get a good signal.

This time frame is also emphasized in an e-mail by the Wi-Fi Alliance to The Verge.

Sony Xperia XA2 hands-on
The Sony Xperia XA2 Ultra boasts a familiar Sony design, which isn't the most exciting out there, but it is at least functional. Sony has bumped RAM up to 3GB and doubled the storage to 32GB, so the L2 has nothing to be ashamed of in those departments.

Celeno is the provider of smart, managed Wi-Fi solutions. Problems with compatibility can cause a fair amount of frustration for end users, especially if they have equipment that does not work well with the latest 802.11ax client devices (laptops, 2 in 1s, etc.).

Intel may have been one of the first to produce 802.11ax chips. That should help networks particularly in crowded areas. Called 802.11ax, this standard promises faster wireless internet speeds.

Analyst firm IHS Markit forecasts 802.11ax-enabled device shipments will increase from a relative trickle of 116,000 units in 2019 to a flood of 58 million in 2021.
