Quest for speed, ALE unveils Wi-Fi 6E
June 30, 2022
Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise is expanding its WLAN OmniAccess Stellar range to connect larger audiences in dense environments
Paris, FRANCE, June 30th, 2022 – Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise, a leading provider of digital age networks, communications and cloud solutions is developing its Wi-Fi portfolio enabling 6 GHz band with the launch of Wi-Fi 6E access points (AP) OmniAccess® Stellar 14xx series in September.
In addition to the comprehensive and competitive Wi-Fi 6 OmniAccess Stellar AP13xx series, the new Wi-Fi 6E access points will deliver an extended access portfolio that can manage the ever-increasing wireless connectivity and bandwidth demands.
ALE is first introducing a high-end premium Wi-Fi 6E Access Point which will be followed by a mid-range access point by the end of the year. Wi-Fi 6E extends Wi-Fi into the 6 GHz band, adding a substantial amount of unlicensed spectrum to address the exponential expansion of connected devices.
Wi-Fi standards are driving the pace of evolution for ALE’s OmniAccess Stellar WLAN solutions, and the new access points boast a variety of market-leading capabilities. Through its flexibility and scalability, Wi-Fi 6E provides improved performance in dense environments, allowing a large number of clients to connect to one access point at the same time.
With the rise of high-bandwidth, low-latency applications (such as augmented/virtual reality, 4K/8K Ultra-HD video and medical IoT), 6 GHz Wi-Fi now has seven super-wide 160Mhz channels available for enhanced performances. Public venues and crowded environments will strongly benefit from these advanced connectivity capabilities and offer significant Quality of Experience enhancements to enterprises and users.
Based on a distributed intelligence WLAN control architecture, OmniAccess Stellar products eliminate the need for physical centralised controllers, delivering performances with maximum scalability and real operational simplicity. ALE has been a pioneer in introducing this distributed intelligence architecture.
