SKIKK introduces Wi-Fi 6 laptops

Published on 28 juni 2019

Kampen, The Netherlands – SKIKK™ has given the entire laptop line-up a major upgrade. All laptops now come with support for Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) as standard. SKIKK laptops equipped with WiFi 6 can send and receive files up to 40 percent faster. Thanks to the new TWT function, your battery life also improves. And in crowded places like a stadium, concert or shopping center, your average speed will improve by at least 4x.

Wi-Fi 6 offers more speed

Because the SKIKK laptops are now equipped with the new Intel® Wi-Fi 6 AX200 card, which can achieve speeds of up to 2.4 Gbps. As a result, users spend less time waiting for updates and more time working and gaming. The Cyclone Peak network cards can transfer data about 37% faster thanks to Wi-Fi 6 or 802.11ax, but often the bandwidth improvements are even more remarkable due to a more efficient use of the available spectrum. The latency should also be about 75% lower with Wi-Fi 6 compared to Wi-Fi 5 (802.11ac).

Longer battery life

A new feature called target wake time (TWT) will also extend the battery life of your SKIKK laptop and other Wi-Fi enabled devices. To understand how this works, you must first understand how Wi-Fi works. It is not the case that a router can provide all devices with data at the same time. Packets of data are always alternately delivered to different devices.

Better in busy environments

Wi-Fi often gets slow when you're in a crowded place with lots of devices. For example, a busy stadium, airport, hotel, shopping center or even a busy office where everyone is connected to the same router. Wi-Fi 6 will improve average speed in busy areas with many devices by “at least four times”.
