Wi-Fi 6 AX3000 VPN Routers

Wi-Fi 6 or 802.11ax – the current latest wireless standard

The 802.11ax standard not only provides boosted speeds for single users, busy and client-dense environments benefit significantly, but also more efficient resource sharing. This results in greater overall performance, for more users, lower latency and less pauses in connectivity.

Wi-Fi 6 also brought in several advanced new techologies and features, including some that have already been used to great effect in 4G and LTE networks, enhancing speeds while many users download content at the same time.

Higher Capacity

Higher Capacity with OFDMA and Multi-User MIMO

OFDMA is a key feature of Wi-Fi 6. It’s short for Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiple Access, which is an advanced technology for sharing a radio between multiple users. 4G networks and now Wi-Fi 6 use this to provide data to many users at once.

Users watching videos can be allocated more, while a phone just checking email or on a voice call could be assigned less, just as much as each one requires, but each one receiving its requested data in good time.

Previous Wi-Fi standards have access points communicate with wireless clients, one at a time. Sending to one client, then moving on to send to the next.

This can become more inefficient as the number of clients connected increases, users wait longer for their turn, causing more packet loss, laggy video and buffering.

Wi-Fi 6 uses OFDMA (Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiple Access) to split up an access point’s channel bandwidth into small chunks referred to as Resource Units.

Then it uses complex scheduling in the background to determine which users need more resources at any one time.

The result is that everyone receives data more regularly and with greater overall speeds, making each AP more able to service more clients, doing more. In addition, 802.11ax makes improvements to Multi-User MIMO, where the previous standard only supported this for downstream, 802.11ax improves this to support both directions.

DrayTek 2865ax VDSL VPN Router
with Wi-Fi 6 AX3000 wireless

The Vigor 2865ax is a VDSL and Ethernet WAN router featuring VPN, advanced routing features, firewall, content filtering, bandwidth management and more. Connect the Vigor 2865 to Superfast Fibre with its integrated VDSL modem. Or connect to VirginMedia Cable and Ultrafast FTTP with Ethernet WAN.

Wi-Fi 6 – AX3000 Performance

The Vigor 2865ax features ultra-fast and highly efficient Wi-Fi 6, or 802.11ax. OFDMA allows the router to send to more than one device at a time, splitting up wireless frequency into blocks, assigning more to users that need more e.g. video data, less to users that need less e.g. VoIP calls, then sending all at once. Which ensures all users have less of a wait, greatly improving efficiency. It allows the router to effectively and responsively, serve more wireless clients.
