802.11ax, MU-MIMO, and OFDMA

Wi-Fi 6, also known as 802.11ax, was released in 2019. It has only now begun to see mainstream adoption as the go-to Wi-Fi standard for Wi-Fi manufacturers and businesses alike.

Wi-Fi 6 is also designed to better manage multiple types of Wi-Fi devices that are simultaneously connecting to an access point.
