802.11ac Tech Reference

Posted March 20, 2017

Everyone wants to get the most out of their wireless network and provide reliable service that isn’t a bottleneck in any application. From the warehouse floor to access for your customers, a faster, more capable network is essential to any business.

As wireless technology continues to improve the changes can be hard to keep up with. Many networks today are based on 802.11n which have been a larger improvement from previous Wi-Fi standards but 802.11ac is the next big step.

In essence, 802.11ac is a supercharged version of 802.11n. 802.11ac is dozens of times faster, and delivers speeds ranging from 433 Mbps (megabits per second) up to several gigabits per second. To achieve that kind of throughput, 802.11ac works exclusively in the 5GHz band, uses plenty of bandwidth (80 or 160MHz), operates in up to eight spatial streams (MIMO), and employs a kind of technology called beamforming that sends signal directly to client devices.

This convenient infographic helps illustrate all the capabilities 802.11ac provides and how is can improve your wireless experience. For more help finding the right access points and controllers to migrate to 802.11ac contact one of our wireless specialists.
