Siemon Educates the Industry on Cabling Considerations for the Next Wave of Wi-Fi
Posted on Wednesday, June 24, 2020

Watertown, CT - Siemon, a leading global network infrastructure specialist, today announced a new white paper that covers key design and media selection strategies for designers, consultants, end users and installers to ensure that network cabling infrastructures are prepared to support high-speed Wi-Fi access point (WAP) connections.

Authored by Valerie Maguire, BSEE, a Distinguished Engineer at Siemon, the new white paper entitled, “Preparing for Wi-Fi 6E: Cabling Considerations for High Efficiency Wireless Access Point Connections,” explains the technology behind the latest IEEE 802.11ax HighEfficiency Wireless (HEW) standard and what users can expect in terms of wireless speeds with this new technology. The new white paper outlines the key cabling design strategies that will ensure structured cabling uplinks will be ready to support Wi-Fi 6 and Wi-Fi 6E, including support for current and future transmission speed and remote powering requirements.

“With Wi-Fi 7 and its targeted “real-world” capacity of greater than 20 Gb/s already on the horizon, it’s extremely important that clients follow Siemon’s recommendation to deploy two class EA/category 6A shielded or higher performing drops to each WAP or router and a minimum 25 Gb/s capable backbone to support uplink capacity,” says Maguire. “In addition, emerging wireless technology will require at least 30-watt Type 2 PoE, if not 60-watt Type 3 PoE, which calls for more thermally stable cabling systems. Here at Siemon, we continue to focus on developing innovative solutions that ensure maximum performance and reliability while minimizing heat rise to optimally support WAPs and other PoE-powered devices.”

In the new white paper, Maguire also addresses the use of a grid-based zone cabling architecture to support the logical distribution of WAPs through the ceiling space, how to simplify WAP deployments using category 6A component-compliant field terminated plugs and other key cabling design strategies to ensure support for Wi-Fi 6E and beyond.
