Wi-fi 5 and Wi-Fi 6

Provides solutions for today's high-speed wireless network applications

With the increasing use of mobile devices, Wi-Fi is now ubiquitous and widely used in all sorts of places -- from offices, schools, universities and hospitals, to entertainment, hotels and retail venues。As Wi-Fi applications have evolved, so have the technologies, from 10 to 100 megabytes to gigabytes and above, supporting everything from business-critical applications to ultra-high-definition video streaming。

In 2013, IEEE released 802.11AC standard for very high-throughput Wi-Fi, namely Wi-Fi 5, where Wave 1 devices can support up to 1.At 3 Gb/s, Wave 2 devices can support up to 3.Speed of 5 Gb/s。With the 802, known as Wi-Fi 6.With the release of the 11AX standard, IEEE now increases the throughput of Wi-Fi even further, offering speeds of over 5 Gb/s and theoretically nearly 10 Gb/s in the future。

According to industry standards, it is recommended to use at least class 6A copper cable or OM3 multi-mode fiber to connect wireless access points (WAP), as this is the only way to achieve throughput higher than 5 Gb/s。Today, most wireless access points (WAPs) can also use power over Ethernet (PoE) technology for better heat dissipation and thermal stability through shielded twisted-pair wiring。

High-performance Wi-Fi cabling


Simon class 6A and higher copper cabling solutions are perfect for today's Wi-Fi applications, with shielded class 6A and higher systems providing superior PoE support。Simon's fiber optic cabling is also ideal for long-distance applications and can deploy backbone networks of at least 25 GIGABytes to support Wi-Fi 5 and Wi-Fi 6 uplink capacity。

  • A full range of indoor and outdoor class 6A shielded or unshielded, class 7A fully shielded cables provide maximum margin for all critical transmission parameters。
  • Simon's Class 6A and class 7A shielded cables meet rated operating temperatures up to 75°C and provide better cooling capacity for PoE power supply to wireless access points。
  • A full range of multi-mode and single-mode fiber optic cables, cable assemblies, distribution boxes, jumpers, pigtails and field termination systems support backbone to long-distance connections for the latest Wi-Fi deployments。

Fast and easy wireless access point connection

Fast, Easy WAP Connections

Simon offers a range of wireless Access Point (WAP) connectivity solutions, including field end plugs for direct connection as well as sockets, panels and modular device jumpers for traditional deployments。

  • Z-PLUG®Field end plugs can be customized for cable length, end in the field, and quickly connect directly to wireless access points, eliminating sockets and device jumpers that should not be exposed。Slim plugs with rounded edges can easily connect devices with limited space without the need for protection from jackets and buckles。A single model of Z-Plug is compatible with Class 5E, 6, 6A, and 7A, and can be connected to shielded and unshielded, solid, and multi-stranded cables from gauge 22 to 26。
  • Z-MAX®Sockets can be installed on a variety of MAX panels, adapters, surface mounting boxes and distribution frames, with the patented IDC port design for optimal performance and easy and fast termination
  • MAX®Fiber optic adapter modules are available in single/duplex ST and SC types, and duplex LC types are optional, compatible with all MAX series panel and surface mount boxes to meet extended remote applications。

Area Cabling Deployment

Zone Cabling Deployments

Using a grid-based area cabling architecture to accommodate subsequent additional wireless access point deployments allows rapid reconfiguration of coverage and provides redundant interfaces to meet future connectivity requirements。Simon PLenum Flame retardant rating Area distribution boxes can be installed in ceiling Spaces to support intermediate connections between optical and copper cables, providing shorter wiring links from area distribution boxes to local wireless access points。Area distribution boxes also provide additional capacity to accommodate link aggregation and/or alternate connection points that may be required by next-generation Wi-Fi technology, ensuring minimal impact while deploying additional wireless access points。

  • Cost-effective Plenum flame retardant grade 24 port MAX Area distribution box supports flat port MAX (copper cable or optical fiber), Z-MAX®Or TERA®Sockets that support up to 24 ports for deployment of wi-fi area cabling。
  • Passive ceiling area distribution boxes that meet Plenum flame retardant rating can be inserted into a 2x2 ft ceiling space, support up to 96 ports for large Wi-Fi area cabling deployment, and come with a load rating of 31.7 kg adjustable 4U rack system。
