    Blog Post: Top 3 design challenges that the new generation of SimpleLink™ Wi-Fi® devices will help you overcome
    Published. February 21, 2019

    Have you ever tried to connect your smart Internet-of-Things (IoT) devices to a busy Wi-Fi® network, just to have them rendered useless because the network and bandwidth are ridiculously slow? Many Wi-Fi networks were built using 2.4 GHz, and billions of devices (a number that continues to grow exponentially each year) are now Wi-Fi-enabled. In some instances, wireless networks have become unbearably crowded. This congestion causes a ton of interference that can impact the overall performance...
