You’ve Heard of 5G. Now Meet Wi-Fi 6.

Article | April 9, 2020

Got Wi-Fi problems? Future routers will at least be ready for the next pandemic. With much of the U.S. on home lockdown to stop the spread of the coronavirus, we’re all more aware than ever just how important Wi-Fi is — and it’s something many of us probably took for granted until now. Before the pandemic, most everyone was focused on 5G, the next big thing in mobile-internet technology, and the possibilities it would create for our smartphone-brandishing on-the-go lifestyles. The country has been in a hurry to build out new 5G wireless networks that are fast enough to do things such as download movies in the blink of an eye, and someday even power driverless cars. Except “on the go” and “drive” don’t mean much when we’re literally not going anywhere these days.

Since my last blog post warning about those who were predicting a "new paradigm" of shortage in the semiconductor industry, the media have been shouting about the "chip crisis" alongside the typical daily news diet of disaster and calamity that we have come to expect in the time of COVID. The chip shortage coverage helped create a sense of national anxiety that we were all too reliant on China for semiconductors and, in general, that semiconductor supply was dwindling. The predictable response from governments around the world was to announce plans to stimulate their respective domestic semiconductor manufacturers into expanding chip production capacity. Fast forward a few months, and we are now finally seeing some light at the end of the chip shortage tunnel. Yet, in the wake of all the proclamations and commitments about investing in new chip capacity, we also now see manufacturers going forward with actually starting to build new plants that won't come online for another couple of years. The result, as I said in my last post: overcapacity.

The next-generation of wireless technologies – known as 5G – is here.
