IEEE 802.11ah Wi-Fi HaLow Emerges for IoT

Wi-Fi in 2016 is pervasive already with over 12 billion Wi-Fi enabled devices shipped to date, with 3 billion more forecast to ship this year. Helping to fuel Wi-Fi growth in 2016 and beyond will be the market for the Internet of Things (IoT). A key pillar to enable Wi-Fi is the emerging IEEE 802.11ah specification, which the Wi-Fi Alliance is branding as HaLow.
