In the healthcare & life sciences industry, Wi-Fi 6 is utilized for centralized data management to enhance the scalability and reliability of services. Wi-Fi 6 can accommodate multiple devices in dense locations, providing better coverage, and improving spectrum resource management, ultimately resulting in a better user experience and improved patient outcomes. This technology is particularly beneficial for hospitals where there is a high volume of medical devices that are transitioning from wired to wireless configurations. By upgrading these devices and access points to Wi-Fi 6, healthcare practitioners can provide more efficient and reliable patient care.

Latin America to register the second-highest growth rate during the forecast period

Latin America is adopting Wi-Fi 6 solutions and services slower than other regions due to the region's lack of economic stability and poor infrastructure growth. However, the rising IT revolution is leading to the widespread use of the internet and mobile-based applications. The number of smartphones sold in Latin American countries has also increased, which has spurred the adoption of Wi-Fi 6 technology. Wi-Fi 6 in Latin America can establish strategic relationships with regional telecom operators, device makers, and solution suppliers to exploit its current infrastructure, expertise, and customer base. Collaboration with these entities can accelerate the supply of services and market penetration. It is important to consider security and data privacy in the IoT space. Wi-Fi 6 in Latin America must adhere to data protection laws and guarantee safe connectivity to maintain trust among businesses and customers.
