Always wanted your Wi-Fi to be faster? Well, your wish seems to have finally been answered in the new year. The WiFi Alliance has finally give a go ahead to the eagerly-anticipated 802.11ah WiFi standard called "HaLow"

All the approved devices will now be eligible to operate in the unlicensed 900MHz band, which has almost double the range of the current 2.4GHz standard. Further, it will use less power and provide better wall penetration.

The new Wi-Fi standard is expected to be a saviour for the Internet of Things (IoT) and connected home devices market, which so far haven't been able to take the world by storm. The main reason for this can be attributed to the fact that gadgets like connected bulbs and door sensors etc. require to have enough power so as to send data to long distances to remote hubs or routers and this has been a difficult task to achieve with the current Wi-Fi standard available.

The new standard, HaLow, combines lower power requirements with a lower frequency, in order to make sure that signals propagate in a better way. It will also offer a much larger effective range than the current Wi-Fi standards, which operate on just 2.4GHz and 5GHz frequencies.

The new Wi-Fi standard can be expected to adopt existing WiFi protocols like IP connectivity, which means the devices will have regular WiFi-grade security and interoperability.

We hope that the new Wi-Fi standard breathes a new life into the Internet of things, which for the time being looks like more smoke with no fire.
