Abstract

Recently, IEEE 802 started a task group to investigate and deliver next generation WLAN technologies for the scenarios of dense networks with a large number of stations and access point. The proposal is specified as the IEEE 802.11ax amendment. Due to the significant network capacity increase achieved by 802.11ax, the term high-efficiency WLAN (HEW) is also used in reference to this new amendment. This paper summarizes the IEEE 802.11ax standardization activities in progress and presents an overview of the most important features proposed in the 802.11ax amendment. Expected features and challenges for 802.11ax in the design of physical layer (PHY) and media access control sub-layer (MAC), toward a new era of wireless LANs, are also discussed.
