You may have heard of the FCC's recent decision to open up space on the 6 GHz wireless spectrum, but what does that really mean for the future of wifi performance? On episode 20 of Ping: A Firewalls.com Podcast, Andrew and Kevin welcome an expert in the wireless world, Sundar Sankaran, VP of Engineering with CommScope’s Ruckus Networks to fill us in on the implications. He provides an explanation of how the new spectrum will allow for better connection speeds, the types of technology that will most benefit, and when you can expect to get your hands on a wifi 6E (the 'e' stands for extended) device.

Then we take a look at cybersecurity news in our headlines segment, including:
