Ultra Reliable Low Latency Communications (URLLC) is an important challenge for the next generation wireless networks, which poses very strict requirements to the delay and packet loss ratio. Satisfaction is hardly possible without introducing additional functionality to the existing communication technologies. In the paper, we propose and study an approach to enable URLLC in Wi-Fi networks by exploiting an additional radio similar to that of IEEE 802.11ba. With extensive simulation, we show that our approach allows decreasing the delay by orders of magnitude, while the throughput of non-URLLC devices is reduced insignificantly.
