I guess that your thesis is mostly technical.

I wonder if there is work that might occur from the business department end
of things.  Why do we have 15 years of WiFi optimization, which seem to be
taking us further away from low latency.  Are the new protocols actually
improving the situation for the end consumer?  My impression is no.
Nobody notices because the quality is so unpredictable.
