Extreme Networks’ Dual 5 GHz Solution

Published 17 Dec 2019
While the 2.4 GHz band helped drive the success of Wi-Fi globally over the last 10+ years, the 5 GHz band gives Wi-Fi deployments much more flexibility and capacity. The 5 GHz spectrum is bigger, less congested, and allows for higher data rates overall. Although using the 2.4 GHz band is necessary in some wireless environments, the benefits of 5 GHz are significantly recognizable:
  • High percentage of 5 GHz capable client devices
  • 7x the bandwidth of 2.4 GHz
  • Less RF and Wi-Fi interference
  • Creates less co-channel interference (CCI) with more channels and smaller cells
