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.
These new and improved types of technology are meant to deliver more reliability, massive network capacity, increased availability, and a more uniform user experience to more users. This higher performance and improved efficiency will allow for new user experiences and connect new industries.
