It’s still early, but a lot of exciting technology has already emerged in 2018. From over-the-air charging to digital whiteboards, businesses everywhere will have the opportunity to improve business operations and increase efficiency. While some of this technology is still being developed, its slated for release and possibly even adoption in 2018.

D-Link’s 802.11ax routers

802.11ax is a new standard in Wi-Fi development that could bring speeds up to 10-times faster than traditional Wi-Fi. For offices with a lot of employees, or small offices with a poor Wi-Fi, 802.11ax will revitalize your internet connection and could even save your device’s battery life. This technology isn’t expected to be adopted until 2019, but companies have already begun releasing hardware that can support this new standard. D-Link unveiled two models during CES 2018: the AX6000 Ultra Wi-Fi Router and the tri-band AX110000 Ultra Wi-Fi Router. These routers will increase speeds to 6,000 and 11,000 Mbps, respectively. Depending on your router and connection, current Wi-Fi supports speeds up to 2,100 Mbps.

Using these new D-Link routers would mean that your business would be able to operate without any slowdowns or technical hiccups. Increased speeds could even improve the battery life of your devices because they aren’t working as hard to receive and transmit data. While this technology is on the horizon, it may not be worth it to hold up for a full-scale 802.11 upgrade. Despite this exciting new hardware and technology, it may take a while for everything to be implemented. D-Link said it would release the two router models in the second half of 2018.
