Wi-Fi
As a significant part of WLAN, Wireless-Fidelity (Wi-Fi) is a technology which can interconnect personal PC, mobile device (such as pad and mobile) and other terminals by wireless connection.
In essence, Wi-Fi is a sort of high-frequency radio signal.

Wi-Fi 6
As one of the standard of wireless LAN, Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) is the upgraded version of Wi-Fi 5 (802.11ac) . Compared to the previous generation of Wi-Fi standard, Wi-Fi 6 is capable of a theoretical maximum throughput speed of 9.6 Gbps by using eight antennas.


Wi-Fi 6

The advantages of Wi-Fi 6
·  Stronger acceptance
Unlike previous Wi-Fi protocol, Wi-Fi 6 enables Access Point (AP) send and receive data from several devices at the same time.
·  Higher efficiency and larger capacity
Differentiated from the OFDM technology applied in Wi-Fi 5, the OFDMA technology applied in Wi-Fi 6 supports more than one terminal to transmit data simultaneously. 
With this OFDMA technology, the router can communicate with eight devices at the same time instead of communicating one by one, which perfectly enhances the efficiency and lowers the latency. As a result, it improves the capacity and performance of the whole wireless system.
All of these technologies are built for solving the network congestion problem caused by massive accessing of devices , which is very crucial for the application in our modern life.

What’s the digital application scenarios in industrial field?
Compared to the private cellular network, Wi-Fi can be deployed more cost-effectively, rapidly and easily. The private Wi-Fi network has already used in industry field:
·  In the factory: 
a) Automatic controlling and computing of industrial equipment
b) AR/VR assistance
c) Robotic coordination 
d) Autopilot
e) Smart industry
·  Out of the factory: 
a) The communication between factory and data center
b) The communication among several factories.

Based on different business scenarios, factories will adopt telecom technologies such as bluetooth, Wi-Fi, professional wireless system, 2G/3G/4G and so on. In the popular trend of industrial internet, the requirements of low latency, high bandwidth, strong reliability and massive connection have already become the necessary conditions of constructing new wireless transmission. Especially consider that the industrial data is significant and valuable for enterprises, so higher requirements of data security is necessarily required.


4G/5G and WiFi

The practical application solution in industrial field supported by IPLOOK
IPLOOK provides solutions based on different application scenarios and diverse requirement as below:
·  For the scenarios with requirement of cost-effective solution and simple services
For the enterprises which have low budget and have no need to provide core data, cost-effective and high-bandwidth, Wi-Fi 6 is recommended to be applied in their practical scenario.
·  For the scenarios with requirement of high-security and high-reliability
Enterprises can choose 4G/5G or Wi-Fi+ security solution according to their specific requirement.
·  For the scenarios with high requirement of technicality
4G/5G solution is the only option. In the installation process of digital lathe, based on communication module, 4G/5G is able to locate precisely through cellular network so as to ensure the machines working in specific location with the distinctive and reliable security system.


In general, there are diverse requirements of network in industrial field. The detailed requirement depends on specific business, scenarios, demands of network bandwidth, network resource and complexity of operation. The popular trend of converging 5G and Wi-Fi 6 is coming. Combined with high-secure 5G and cost-effective Wi-Fi 6, the practical application solution has potential in IoT, intelligent driving, industrial network and other fields. Although the trend of convergence is unstoppable, private network solution may be more practical for most of the application scenarios.
IPLOOK is also working on providing and inventing more professional 5G and Wi-Fi 6 converged solutions.
