WiFi Extended – Ping Podcast – Episode 20

Episode 20: WiFi Extended

The wireless world has been abuzz with the news of the FCC’s recent decision to open space on the 6 GHz spectrum. We know it’s good news, but what can we expect moving forward? On episode 20 of Ping: A Firewalls.com Podcast, Andrew and Kevin welcome Sundar Sankaran, VP of Engineering with CommScope’s Ruckus Networks to provide an overview. He explains why this added space will lead to better performance, the types of technology that will really thrive with better speeds, and of course, the timeframe for adoption of WiFi 6E – the ‘e’ is for extended.

In our cybersecurity headlines, we talk discuss a data breach affecting Home Chef. Plus, hear about another cryptocurrency mystery possibly involving bitcoin’s secret founder Satoshi. And take a trip to a virtual cybersecurity school to get kids into the career field.
