WLAN vs. WiFi: Insights and differences

ASCEND, a renowned IT system house in Nuremberg, focuses on comprehensive solutions in the area of WLAN and WiFi. While WLAN (Wireless Local Area Network) generally describes wireless local networks, WiFi specifically defines the standards and certifications for interoperability between WLAN devices. ASCEND uses these technologies to develop individual solutions for a wide range of requirements.

Frequencies in WLAN: The basis for connection and range

The choice of frequency is crucial for the performance of a WLAN network. In Germany, the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz frequency bands are particularly relevant for WLAN applications. While the 2.4 GHz band offers a greater range at a lower speed, the 5 GHz band enables higher speeds over shorter distances. ASCEND plans and implements WLAN networks with these factors in mind to ensure optimum performance.

WiFi standards: The key to modern connectivity

Current WiFi standards such as Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) offer improved capacities and higher speeds compared to older standards such as 802.11b/g/n. These developments enable ASCEND to provide advanced WLAN solutions that meet the needs of modern businesses.

WLAN speed: Fast, reliable and efficient

The speed of a WLAN network depends on various factors, including the standards used, frequencies and network utilization. ASCEND uses state-of-the-art technologies and devices, such as the powerful Ruckus access points, to ensure high data transfer rates and reliable network performance.

WLAN and the future: next-generation networking

The future of Wi-Fi lies in the further development of technologies such as Wi-Fi 6 and their integration into IoT (Internet of Things) and smart home applications. ASCEND keeps its finger on the pulse and integrates the latest developments into its solutions to create future-oriented networks that meet the growing demands for connectivity and smart technologies.

Discover the future of WLAN: Wi-Fi 6, 6E and 7

Since 2019, Wi-Fi 6 has provided a solid basis for today's network requirements with maximum data rates of 9.6 Gbps. Wi-Fi 6E, launched in 2021, extends this to the 6 GHz frequency band and addresses spectrum congestion challenges in crowded areas. Wi-Fi 7, expected in 2024, promises to push the boundaries of wireless connectivity further with a doubling of the maximum channel width to 320 MHz and 4096-QAM modulation.


ASCEND is at your side as a competent partner to help you select the right WLAN standard for your needs and be ready for the next generation of wireless technology.
