In order to "help users identify devices that provide the latest Wi-Fi experience," the Wi-Fi alliance decided to rebrand past wireless standards. IEEE 802.11n is called "Wi-Fi 4", 802.11ac is "Wi-Fi 5", and 802.11ax will be called "Wi-Fi 6." In addition to the new names, the organization is also encouraging developers an manufacturers to prominently display the type of Wi-Fi connection in device UIs. "For nearly two decades, Wi-Fi users have had to sort through technical naming conventions to determine if their devices support the latest Wi-Fi," said Edgar Figueroa, president and CEO of Wi-Fi Alliance. "Wi-Fi Alliance is excited to introduce Wi-Fi 6, and present a new naming scheme to help industry and Wi-Fi users easily understand the Wi-Fi generation supported by their device or connection."
