WiFox – Wi-Fi technology to improve by 700% in congested networks

A group of engineers at North Carolina State University have discovered a way to improve the throughput of congested Wi-Fi networks by 700%, which is more important if we consider the fact that the improvement can be done with a simple software upgrade, in this case we are talking about WiFox software.


Wi-Fi networks have good throughput and good latency to some extent, to fall in performance so that almost anyone on the network can connect decently Wi-Fi Internet.


To address this issue, this group of engineers have designed a scheme called WiFox, software running on a Wi-Fi access point -is part of their firmware, and manages the congestion level possible. If WiFox detects that reaches a level of concern, called mode enables high priority, in which the access point has full control of the wireless channel and deletes its log data, which allows performance to be normal.


Based on testing by developers, performance during congestion from an access point that is connected to 45 devices managed to gain 700% in terms of throughput, and latency was also reduced by 30-40%. Certainly, figures that could make a small revolution in Wi-Fi networks with congestion problems that cited. This was all regarding, all new technology scheme software of wireless technology created by group of engineers, WiFox.
