High Efficiency WLAN (HEW)

Instant supports the IEEEInstitute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers. 802.11ax standard, also known as High-Efficiency WLANWireless Local Area Network. WLAN is a 802.11 standards-based LAN that the users access through a wireless connection. (HEW). HEW improves spectrum efficiency and area throughput in dense deployment scenarios of APs or stations in both indoor and outdoor environments. HEW enhances the 802.11802.11 is an evolving family of specifications for wireless LANs developed by a working group of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). 802.11 standards use the Ethernet protocol and Carrier Sense Multiple Access with collision avoidance (CSMA/CA) for path sharing. PHY and MACMedia Access Control. A MAC address is a unique identifier assigned to network interfaces for communications on a network. channels on both 2.4 GHzGigahertz. and 5 GHzGigahertz. frequency bandsBand refers to a specified range of frequencies of electromagnetic radiation..

HEW includes the following key features:

Backward compatible with 802.11a802.11a provides specifications for wireless systems. Networks using 802.11a operate at radio frequencies in the 5 GHz band. The specification uses a modulation scheme known as orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM) that is especially well suited to use in office settings. The maximum data transfer rate is 54 Mbps./b/g/n/ac.

Better power management for longer battery life.

Configuring High Efficiency on a WLAN SSID

Most deployments do not require manual configuration of the high-efficiency SSIDService Set Identifier. SSID is a name given to a WLAN and is used by the client to access a WLAN network. profile as this option is enabled by default. However, you can configure advanced high-efficiency SSIDService Set Identifier. SSID is a name given to a WLAN and is used by the client to access a WLAN network. profile settings or modify default SSIDService Set Identifier. SSID is a name given to a WLAN and is used by the client to access a WLAN network. profile values using the Instant WebUI or CLICommand-Line Interface.
