Can 802.11ad help extend your Wi-Fi network?
802.11ad, also known as WiGig, is a new wireless standard for Point-to-Point or Point-to-Multipoint operations. The use of 60Ghz channels will let you extend the network between connected buildings or other outdoor infrastructure.
New wireless security protections.
WPA3™ provides higher encryption, streamlined configuration and improved resistance to offline dictionary attacks. Enhanced Open™ gives open networks a security boost with default protections for guests the moment they associate to Wi-Fi.
