802.11ac WiFi Technology :::
A new IEEE standard is in the wings ready to make its debut on the wireless market stage: 802.11ac.
802.11ac builds upon the success of 802.11n which is now the predominant WLAN standard in the market. 802.11n brought improvements in data rates and link efficiencies; however, consumer and commercial trends have created demand for a new set of capabilities which are addressed by 802.11ac.
802.11ac Features and Customer Benefits
Wider channels :: Higher data rates – up to 1.3Gbps per radio
Higher Encoding Density :: Higher bit density per packet
Increased number of spatial streams :: Higher data rates per AP/client link
Beamforming :: Greater wireless AP/client link reliability
Multi-user MIMO :: Greater AP/client capacity and efficient use of spectrum
