Main Session: It is Impossible to Calculate Wi-Fi Capacity with Peter Mackenzie

8:45
-
9:45

Would anyone like a friendly debate? Well, I would like to propose that it is impossible to calculate Wi-Fi capacity.

While I will stand up and defend this option, this is an argument I would love to lose.

So, if anyone has strong options on this topic or a Wi-Fi capacity calculation which works, then first vote for this session, then let me know and maybe you can join me on the platform. I will explain why I have come to this conclusion; we will look at some data to back up my conclusions and explore the question:

If we can’t accurately calculate capacity, how do we “design for capacity”?

Short: How to REALLY Get Started with Python with François Vergès

Short: Impact of MAC Randomization on Today's Wi-Fi Networks with Jim Palmer

13:00
-
13:30

With Apple's iOS 14, Android 10, and Windows 10, Locally Administered MAC addresses have shot to prominence as now devices are connecting to networks using a MAC address that isn’t their Globally Unique MAC address.

This protects the users privacy and keeps networks from being able to identify them.

Or does it? This talk will break down exactly what breaks (captive portals for monetization), what doesn’t (DHCP Option 12 & 61), and how networks can deal with this development.

Short: Practical Considerations for Deploying Wi-Fi 6E with Jatin Parekh

15:00
-
15:30

As the adoption of Wi-Fi 6E gathers momentum, it is important to understand the practical considerations of Wi-Fi 6E to make a judicial decision of when and how to deploy Wi-Fi 6E.

Deploying Wi-Fi 6E goes beyond just replacing existing APs with Wi-Fi 6E models and in this talk we will discuss the different aspects to considered and balance that help adopters take a informed decision on when and how to roll out Wi-Fi 6E in their network to extract best value for their investment while maintaining seamless experience for Wi-Fi users.

Main Session: Wi-Fi  6E - It’s Almost Like Wi-Fi is Being Born Again! with David  Coleman

8:45
-
9:45

Admittingly, many individuals are suffering from symptoms of Wi-Fi update fatigue. Wi-Fi 5, Wi-Fi 6, and naming conventions further distorted by 5G cellular marketing jargon. 802.11abgn, 802.11ac, 802.11ax… when does this alphabet soup madness end?

Despite the understandable fatigue, Wi-Fi 6E and the availability of 6 GHz for Wi-Fi communications is probably the most exciting thing to happen for Wi-Fi in the last 15 years. Wi-Fi 6E is not just a technical update; instead, it is a spectrum update.

This spectrum bonanza has just begun. This session will cover some of the real-world observations we have learned to date about Wi-Fi 6E and 6 GHz WLANs. And guess what? Wi-Fi 7 is on the horizon! It’s almost like Wi-Fi is being born again!

Short: 802.11ax Channel Access with Jim Vajda

9:45
-
10:15

OFDMA gets a lot of attention, but EDCA still plays a critical role in 802.11ax, including in the 6 GHz band. This will be a technical dive into channel access in 802.11ax, highlighting the continued role of the classic 802.11 distributed contention mechanism, and the differences that occur with wide channel widths.

Dan Jones will take you through how he’s using answering these questions.

Short: Stadium Wi-Fi Design Wi-Fi 5 vs Wi-Fi 6 with Todd Simmons

11:00
-
11:30

The way we are designing and configuring the Wi-Fi network for stadiums has shifted.

If you are designing a network for Wi-Fi you can do things with Wi-Fi 6 that you weren’t able to do with Wi-Fi 5.

These changes result in an improved guest user experience. Do you know what those changes are?

How will 6 GHz networks impact your network? With 6 GHz, smaller cell sizes and transmit power limitations will increase the density of APs in your design allowing you to design a network to accommodate the additional throughput needed for your network as applications get more demanding.

Let’s talk design considerations for 6 GHz networks.
