TechWiseTV Workshop - Q&A - Cisco Catalyst 9100 Access Points for Wi-Fi 6

With users expecting an immersive experience, and with IoT becoming the new mobile, we are more dependent on Wi-Fi than ever before. The Cisco Catalyst 9100 Access Points, powered by Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) technology and supporting Cisco’s intent-based networking architecture, are ready for the growing user expectations, IoT devices, and next-generation cloud-driven applications. Cisco’s first Wi-Fi 6 access point can handle the increased mobile traffic as well as support IoT at scale. It has superior RF innovations and will expand wireless access with intelligence to provide a secure, reliable, high-quality wireless experience for all networks.

TechWiseTV Workshop - Q&A - Cisco Catalyst 9100 Access Points for Wi-Fi 6

  1. 1. Q&A © 2019 Cisco and/or its affiliates. All rights reserv ed. This document is Cisco Public. Page 1 of 2 TechWiseTV Workshop: Cisco Catalyst 9100 Access Points for Wi-Fi 6 July 31, 2019 Q. Full 802.11ax support of the 6-GHz band may not happen before the end of 2020, so the Wi-Fi 6 timeline should be stretched beyond 2020. A. While 6-GHz support is part of IEEE draft 4.0+, it is not a mandatory feature for release 1 of 802.11ax (know n as Wi-Fi 6). As w ith 802.11ac, w e potentially may see release 2. There’s no question that Wi-Fi 6 w illextend w ell beyond 2020, for reasons that go beyond the new bands. I agree w ith you! Q. Will we be able to leverage common authentication flows between 5Gand Wi-Fi 6? So we can move from one network type to another? A. Today, management is done as separate domains, including authentication, roaming improvements, carrier offload, and QoS management. This encompasses an architecture w ith common APIs betw een the control points of these netw orks. Q. What percentage of Wi-Fi 6 capable endpoints do I need to reach in a campus (let’s say 1000 people total) to capitalize on WiFi-6 efficiency gains? A. You can start to see improvements as soon as you have multiple Wi-Fi 6 clients. The AP w ill try to group those Wi-Fi 6 clients together and share the frame among them. It w ill depend on the traffic needs of those clients. Q. I interpret your answer to mean that it’s decided in the standard. A. I’m not sure about the premise of your question, but it could be my lack of know ledge. I am not aw are that a minimum of 106 resource units (RUs) are needed. I believe that orthogonal frequency-division multiple access (OFDMA) enables the use of RUs w ithout a minimum requirement—yes, based on the latest draft. This, I believe, is based on performance simulations. [[Is “resource units” correct?]] Q. Well, if Jim Florwick says you need 106 RUs to do MU-MIMO, I assume that’s how it’s supposed to work. I was just curious as to why. A. I respect that source! I w ill ask him; thank you for raising the question. Also, this note is referring to minimum bandw idth (20 MHz), as reception of RU in high-efficiency multiuser physical protocol data units (HE MU PPDU), w here RU spans the entire bandw idth, is allow ed as per the standard. Q. My audio cut out again after Robb started speaking. Perhaps it's a local Bluetooth issue? A. It might be. You'll receive a thank-you email w ith the recording in case you missed anything. Thank you for joining today. Q. Is the limitation that you need 106 RUs before you can do OFDMA and MU-MIMO a limitation in the standard or in the chipsets? A. It is related to performance improvements that can be delivered, factoring in the transmit quality (error vector magnitude [EVM]) requirements.

Looking back at the OFDMA scale slide for Wi-Fi 6, is the advantage of Wi-Fi 6 only when all clients are Wi-Fi 6 capable, or also with a mix of current devices? A. Throughput benefits and pow er efficiency benefits are applicable to Wi-Fi 6 clients only. How ever, spectrum capacity benefits can be seen in mixed-device environments w ith improvements in scheduling algorithms. These benefits may not be as pronounced. Q. Does the 9120 run a hypervisor? For app hosting? A. It’s a Docker Style container Q. I would be interested in seeing a slide showing how capacity increase as a percentage of clients on Wi- Fi 6 grows over time. A. That’s being looked at in our testing labs today, including mixed-mode environments.
