Enable UL-OFDMA and UL-MUMIMO

As the subject is seen, we see this option in the debug page. Can someone please give background information about this feature and if and when it could be used? 

Whats UL? Up Link?

Re: Enable UL-OFDMA and UL-MUMIMO

@FURRYe38,

 

I inquired your concern to the higher tier of NETGEAR Support.  I got a feedback that UL MU-MIMO is a new key feature introduced with Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax). By leveraging UL MU-MIMO, multiple clients connected to the access point will be able to send acknowledgment responses (ack) simultaneously, thus saving airtime. This ultimately improves network throughput and efficiency.


For further information, kindly access the links below:

Thank you @DaneA 

What we needed to know. 

 

I would recommend users that have the SXK30 series system to enabled this feature to ensure your getting good wifi performances from the system.
