Kontron Webinar from April 2022

The talk about Wi-Fi 6 has finally shifted from the initial buzz to a discussion about its use and practical implications. As the technology has matured and become affordable, it is ready to meet the ever-increasing hunger for speed and convenience of use. If used in a mesh setup, in particular, Wi-Fi 6 seems to be the ideal choice to address all customer needs.

This free webinar will stay well away from the hype, and give a sober assessment of the practical experience with Wi-Fi 6. Specifically, the webinar will include first-hand experience of T-2, a major Slovenian fibre-access operator, continuously ranked nation’s best in user-friendliness. What does it really take to be the best in meeting customer expectations, and what is the true role of Wi-Fi 6 in it?

Join us as top experts from Iskratel and T-2 make sense of Wi-Fi 6, and discuss how it can (or perhaps cannot) make operators stand out from the crowd.
