"To help OEMs smoothly transition to the new standard, designs based on Intel's 802.11ac infrastructure chipset-the Inte® Home Wi-Fi Chipset WAV500 Series-can upgrade to 802.11ax with no change to the host SoC".
"These performance enhancements are coming just in time to answer new demands in the smart and connected home". Devices based on 802.11ax Draft 1.0 will suffer from a suboptimal experience and increased interference. Celeno´s field-proven chips and software technology have been successfully integrated into numerous OEM Wi-Fi devices and have been deployed in tens of millions of homes around the world by nearly 100 service providers worldwide. Problems with compatibility can cause a fair amount of frustration for end users, especially if they have equipment that does not work well with the latest 802.11ax client devices (laptops, 2 in 1s, etc.).
Intel will be releasing its 802.11ax chipsets this year.

The current 802.11ac standard introduced some features to divvy up network capacity between different devices, but the 802.11ax will take that ability a step further and while also accommodating devices that don't need to max out data-transfer speeds, Robinson said.
Back in early 2017, Qualcomm announced its 802.11ax chipsets, offering better Wi-Fi performance under heavy load with multiple simultaneous users.
In an email to The Verge, the Wi-Fi Alliance, an industry group that sets the standards for new versions of Wi-Fi has said that it doesn't expect to see mass adoption of the new standard until 2019 as product certfication doesn't begin until next year.
