Wifi networks of the new generation will increase the radius of the point up to 1 kilometer.

Until recently, the main problem of smart home devices based on the wifi protocol was a rather low signal penetration. There were several ways out: either create many subnets with different routers, dividing devices into groups (for example, by companies) and managing them according to these very groups, or create a "seamless" wifi network, as we have already written about.

But recently, a new IEEE 802.11ah specification protocol has been developed by experts that operates at a frequency of 900 MHz. Claimed signal range up to 1 kilometer. In practice, the result will be somewhat lower, but even a simple doubling of the existing range of work can allow us to abandon many unnecessary devices and peripherals. Of course, it wasn't without flaws. Firstly, the standard was not initially designed for high data transfer rates, which makes it unsuitable for high-definition video streaming, or fast data transfer. And of course, you should not forget that in our country the State Commission on Radio Frequencies, which is not very quick, is engaged in the allocation of frequencies. All this gives the prerequisites for the emergence of hybrid devices that work both at standard frequencies for managing large flows of information and at the new one for working with smart home devices and the Internet of things. We will see how this will be implemented in practice by 2018, when the first devices using this technology will appear.
