Huawei announced that it has won the “Best Enterprise Wi-Fi Network Award” at the Wireless Broadband Alliance (WBA) Wi-Fi Industry Awards 2020 held during the WBA-organized Wireless Global Congress (WGC) event. This award has been bestowed upon Huawei’s AirEngine Wi-Fi 6 solution for enabling digital transformation of manufacturing factories. Never before has this award been presented to a Chinese Wi-Fi 6 vendor, which is proof of the widespread recognition of Huawei’s AirEngine Wi-Fi 6 solution among global enterprises.
2020 is the year of large-scale Wi-Fi 6 commercial use, and Wi-Fi 6 has played a pivotal role in enterprise digital transformation across industries. This makes competition for the year’s “Best Enterprise Wi-Fi Network Award” fiercer than ever. Amid such competition, Huawei’s AirEngine Wi-Fi 6 solution — featuring lightning-fast speeds, always-on mobility, and continuous self-organizing networking — excelled at digital transformation of manufacturing factories and was singled out as the award winner.
- Lightning-fast speeds: Huawei’s all-new AirEngine Wi-Fi 6 APs are fitted with up to 16 smart antennas, the highest in the industry, to deliver stable wireless coverage without blind spots and a throughput of up to 10.75 Gbit/s. This makes Huawei’s AirEngine Wi-Fi 6 products an ideal choice for bandwidth-hungry applications such as automatic optical detection (AOI), virtual reality (VR), and augmented reality (AR).
- Always-on mobility: To help enterprises of all sizes connect key services to Wi-Fi networks, Huawei AirEngine Wi-Fi 6 uses unique Smart Antenna technology for more stable coverage. The resulting benefits include doubled signal strength in the same location as before, 20% greater coverage distance than other Wi-Fi 6 products, and uncompromised signal at the edge. Further, Huawei’s exclusive lossless roaming technology ensures more stable mobile operations and office collaboration by ensuring zero packet loss and 100% success during roaming for key services. Another highlight is Dynamic Turbo, an intelligent application acceleration technology that achieves ultra-low 10 ms latency, 50% lower than other Wi-Fi 6 products, thereby enabling more stable VR, AR, and HD video services.
- Continuous self-organizing networking: The Wi-Fi industry has long struggled with delivering continuous networking at scale to ensure uncompromised bandwidth and experience for each terminal. Huawei deeply understands this challenge and has applied a number of leading 5G technologies to the latest AirEngine Wi-Fi 6 network. The end result is high-speed experience for each terminal anytime, anywhere, even in high-density environments. Huawei’s solution also stands out with unique intelligent radio calibration technology. By automatically optimizing the entire Wi-Fi network based on big data analytics of network-wide status, this technology ensures that the network runs optimally at all times, and optimizes application experience on the entire network.
