Boingo deploys Wi-Fi 6 network at Brazil International Airport 

November 30, 2023


Boingo Wireless has deployed high-speed Wi-Fi 6 network throughout the Brasília International Airport (BSB), Brazil’s third busiest airport, with roughly 13 million passengers passing through per year. The network extends throughout the airport’s public spaces, terminals and across the tarmac.

Wi-Fi 6 has a maximum potential speeds of up to 40% higher compared to Wi-Fi 5 — a 6.1 Gbps increase — thanks to more efficient data encoding. And while this speed is more of a theoretical maximum, another feature called Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiple Access, or OFDMA, makes it possible for that 9.6 Gbps to be split up across a whole network of devices, resulting in more speed for each device on the network, making it ideal for congested environments like busy airports.
