802.11ax on the roadmap?


Hi there,

I was wondering when 802.11ax Wi-Fi standard will be implemented as this is a big discussion on the big Wi-Fi brands like Aerohive and ruckus.

I haven’t seen anything about this on the Peplink forum yet, but WPA-3 is mentioned being on the roadmap but no ETA yet. WPA-3 will be mandatory on 802.11ax so this would likely be something to release at the same time.

Does the Peplink team have more information on this regarding the development?

Kind regards.



Hello @Frontier_Netherlands,

The engineers are evaluating the standard. While we do not have any information on when this will be implemented, I’m sure that we will end up adding support for it some time in the future. So the answer is similar for the WPA-3 implementation, it will be added to the roadmap, but we do not have any ETA for it’s arrival.



Is there any progression on this, possible future support, and where to look for information on updates?

It gives me the impression Peplink is way behind and if serious about meeting the needs of enterprises ought to have been involved in the standard development and evaluating it more than a year ago and even before the std was finalized. WPA-3 being out is January 2018 news and at this point and is going to be a must-have for new gear puchases – other notable wireless manufacturers already announced support 6 or more months ago…



Can I +2 this request? Numerous requests for 802.11AX Standard will keep us in line with the competition.

Hi Team, can we assume that the long lead time associated with APO-ENT’s and APO-AC-MINI’s has something to do with this feature request for ax? Or is there something else?



Hello Peplink Team,
We are seeing this now as a request here with systems, any news on the evolution of the Peplink/Pepwave range to include 802.11ax compatibility going forward ?
Happy to Help,
Marcus :slight_smile:
