5 Things to Know About Today's WiFi

Nearly 70% of WiFi devices sold this year will support 5GHz dual-band WiFi, surpassing the number of single-band 2.4Ghz devices in use, according to a new study from ABI Research. The ABI Research study, commissioned by the Wi-Fi Alliance , found that widespread adoption of smartphones, tablets and consumer electronics that include support for 802.11ac WiFi in the 5GHz bands is taking dual-band WiFi mainstream. ABI says that GHz usage will grow close to 100% saturation in the next five years. The Alliance calls this latest generation of unlicensed spectrum use Wi-Fi Certified ac, and says it offers more bandwidth for gigabit per second data rates and double the network capacity. (See Qualcomm Advances WiFi With MIMO.) It has put together the following infographic outlining the status of dual-band WiFi across the globe and why it should matter to consumers.

Their key difference is that in M2M the physical-first products are connected on a closed and point-topoint basis, while in the IoT this happens on a more open and multipoint basis. What constitutes a physical-first “Thing” is a moving target, relying on the perceived novelty of products going smart and connected. Therefore, what is considered part of the IoT today may someday be considered a natural part of the Internet of Digital.
