Wi-Fi and 5G technologies co-exist and complement one another when it comes to unlocking unmatched connectivity. Analyst ABI Research has claimed enterprises are set to see rapid rates of Wi-Fi 6E adoption, with shipments of Wi-Fi 6E access points rising from 1.5 million in 2022 to 5.2 million in 2024.
