New Protocol Extends the Wi-Fi range by 200 feet, A Research Done by Brigham Young University

Since the beginning, we have definitely seen major improvements in the Wi-Fi range and speeds throughout the world. Currently, the Wi-Fi utilizes the 802.11n version that allows the usage of 5 GHz spectrum.

Even though this technology offers great speed, however, the range is a big issue with Wi-Fi 802.11n. This lack of range also affects the transfer of Wi-Fi rays through doors and walls. Users who require quick fast Wi-Fi speed and good range can use other options to extend the Wi-Fi range.

Recently, research conducted by Brigham Young University has resolved the life-long issue of Wi-Fi range. A protocol under the name of “On-Off Noise Power Communication” has been created by the researchers to extend the Wi-Fi range by 60 meters or 200 feet.

You don’t have to replace the hardware to use this protocol on your Wi-Fi enabled devices.

The team has successfully placed a transmitter in Wi-Fi enabled devices that is capable of sending wireless noise along with data. The device was able to send a series of 0s and 1s under this protocol that was easily identifiable by the Wi-Fi router.

The researchers have suggested that the following innovation can be utilized in the cellular and Bluetooth as well.
