Max is for Max Social

Max is the first Wi-Fi generation optimized for the way we communicate now—real time video. Think of livestreaming on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram to emerging augmented and virtual reality experiences and gaming. OFDMA in the uplink will handle massive amounts of upload traffic with ease. And in environments with fewer devices, MU-MIMO (Multi user - Multiple Input Multiple Output) technology also allows these same applications to upload and live stream much higher quality video.
