More Reliable Wi-Fi-802.11ax

March 22 2019 , Written by Cisco & Cisco Router, Network Switch Published on #IT, #Networking, #Technology, #Cisco & Cisco Network, #Cisco Wireless - Cisco Wireless AP

You may have heard of Wi-Fi 6 since 2017. Wi-Fi 6 (the newest generation of Wi-Fi) is the next-generation wireless standard that’s faster than 802.11ac, is also known as 802.11ax.

Standards-based Wi-Fi 6 will be available in 2019. Wi-Fi 6 will dramatically improve the wireless experience, and it will enable new use cases for wireless that weren’t possible before.

What are the benefits of Wi-Fi 6? Read the following 6 points.

1. More reliable Wi-Fi

With added reliability, 802.11ax will no longer be the second choice to cellular, with a consistent, dependable network connection that will provide a seamless experience for clients, IoT, and all apps, especially voice and video.

2. More capacity for your network

Addressing the growth of wireless clients, especially IoT, 802.11ax can transmit more data across the airways than previous Wi-Fi standards, as well as serve hundreds and hundreds of active clients per access point.

3. Faster Wi-Fi with more bandwidth

With every new Wi-Fi standard comes an improvement in speed. 802.11ax is no different. It is up to 3 times faster than 802.11ac, improving the user experience and the performance of bandwidth-hungry apps such as voice, video, and collaboration.

4. Improving the 2.4-GHz band is ideal for IoT

The last improvement to 2.4 GHz was 10 years ago with 802.11n. With new improvements to 2.4GHz, 802.11ax is ideal for IoT devices that require more energy efficiency and better Wi-Fi coverage.

5. The Cisco advantage

Cisco goes beyond 802.11ax with innovation such as Cisco DNA Assurance and Intelligent Capture, Flexible Radio Assignment, High Density Experience and CleanAir allowing you to build value across the network, streamline operations, and facilitate business innovation.

6. When can I expect 802.11ax in my network?

Cisco is excited about how 802.11ax will benefit future networks. However, the adoption of 802.11ax, including supporting clients and enterprise-grade access points, is still in the future. Migration to the new standard, as with all such transitions, will take place in phases over time. During this transition period and well into the future, Cisco Aironet 802.11ac Wave 2 access points will be more than capable of meeting the needs of enterprises.

When to Upgrade to 802.11ax?

January 29 2019 , Written by Cisco & Cisco Router, Network Switch Published on #Cisco & Cisco Network, #IT, #Networking, #Technology, #Cisco Wireless - Cisco Wireless AP

Enterprise and service provider customers alike are in the fortunate position to be able to pick between two great technologies:

• IEEE 802.11ac with MU-MIMO, beamforming, and speeds from 290 to 1300 Mbps within 80 MHz

• IEEE 802.11ax with up to 8 SS and 600 to 1800 Mbps for clients (with 1024 QAM) plus additional predictability for advanced applications

IEEE 802.11ac is available today and is robust for most current customer use cases.

IEEE 802.11ax is the future of wireless LANs, but Wi-Fi-certifiable 802.11ax access points will be available only in several months. Clients (smartphones, tablets, laptops, etc.) supporting 802.11ax are also expected to be available starting in 2019. IEEE 802.11ax will provide:

• 4K/8K video at range to multiple simultaneous users (a true relief to every parent of teenagers in a household for sure)

• Ultra-High-Density (UHD) clients

• Determinism for AR/VR applications and significant power savings, especially for IoT devices

Most enterprise customers deploy new access points at the same time that they fit out a building or retrofit a space. For these customers, we recommend installing 802.11ac wave 2 access points today, because of the sheer value of 802.11ac wave 2. Consider also the infrastructure (port speeds) of the LAN and WAN networks because 802.11ac can deliver higher than gigabit speeds today, and 802.11ax can certainly deliver it tomorrow, so your investment plans for the future make this evaluation relevant today.

Mission-critical applications increasingly require determinism and predictability. IoT scale continues to outpace projections. For these reasons consideration of 802.11ax is warranted. The incremental value of 802.11ax exceeds any reasonable price differential and protects your investment without compromising operational realities today.


IEEE 802.11ax is an exciting new step for wireless LANs. This sixth generation of Wi-Fi will not only deliver higher effective speeds, but will enable new business models and use cases, including:

• Full service provider carrier offload

• IT/IoT convergence

• Real-time applications such as enterprise-grade 4K/8K video or augmented or virtual reality

As with every other recent Wi-Fi advances, 802.11ax is backward-compatible, building on existing technologies and making them more efficient. This scenario enables a graceful installed base transition with ever-increasing gains as the client base converges toward 802.11ax. 802.11ax is worth considering as soon as it’s available, even if the client density for the technology is still evolving. In the meantime, enterprise and service provider customers looking at long-term investments in wireless LANs should strongly consider 802.11ac access points.

Cisco’s New Nexus 400G Switches, More Bandwidth…

December 21 2018 , Written by Cisco & Cisco Router, Network Switch Published on #Cisco & Cisco Network, #Cisco Switches - Cisco Firewall, #Data Center, #IT, #Networking, #Cisco Technology - IT News

Data center customers are facing 2 big challenges today.

  1. How can they support data-hungry apps like streaming video, or apps that use artificial intelligence and machine learning?
  2. And how can they keep growing their networks, without having to replace them every time? 

Now Cisco announces the new 400 Gigabit Ethernet (400G) switches that will give customers an edge to meet the need for bandwidth and scale.

The new 400G switches allow customers to create more powerful networks, more cost-effectively and in a fraction of the space.

They provide four times the bandwidth and four times the scale of existing switches without using four times the power.

And since the new switches are built on Cisco’s leading Nexus portfolio, customers can choose to deploy 400G in the way that best meets their needs.

They can be used on their own or in combination with Cisco’s leading security, automation, visibility and analytics software.

Cisco rolled out four models, two each in the Nexus 3400 and Nexus 9000 lines.

These next-generation 400G (Gigabit Ethernet) switches have four times more throughput than the networking giant’s current 100G offerings.

The two webscale 4300 switches are both built round the same single-chip 12.8Tbps ASIC, with a claim of 470ns latency. The 3432D-S packs 32 400Gbps ports into one rack unit (RU), while the 3408-S takes up four rack units to give a more flexible package to mix and match with lower speed ports.

The enterprise switches are slower, with a 6.4Tbps fabric and, as with the webscale products, there are two models: the Nexus 93600CD-GX, 1RU switch with 16 400Gbps ports, and the 9315D-GX, also a 1RU switch, but with 32 ports to allow lower capacity links to be included.

The Cisco Nexus 9316D 400GbE switch

The Cisco Nexus 93600CD 400GbE switch


  1. Cisco’s two new Nexus 3400-S switches for hyperscale companies will be available for customer evaluations in December.
  2. The two new Nexus 9300-GX switches for large enterprises and service providers will be available for customer evaluations during the first quarter of 2019.
