Inside Wi-Fi 6 Masterclass
802.11ax/Wi-Fi 6 (duration: 2x 3.5 hours)
The IEEE 802.11ax based Wi-Fi 6 has created a market storm with a raft of product announcements in the past year. We expect 2021 to be the bumper year for Wi-Fi 6 as many new wireless products are likely to incorporate Wi-Fi 6 technology. In this deep dive, we want to cover the inner workings of Wi-Fi 6 in other words: All the technology aspects of Wi-Fi 6 you need to understand to make you more successful with Wi-Fi 6 as you develop your products and applications.
“The 2 day web training (6hrs) on WiFi6 (802.11AX) from Srikanth was very informative. His presentation was crisp and clear and was pretty engaging too. The depth and width of his presentation on MAC and PHY was quite right. By attending this seminar, I saved weeks and weeks of 802.11AX document reading. By making the recordings of the presentation available for a limited time, Srikanth offers all the attendees’, a 2nd chance to listen to the seminar and solidify his/her knowledge. I would definitely recommend this course to anyone who like to get a good knowledge on the inner workings of WiFi6. I will give 5/5 for Srikanth’s presentation skills”.
