11AC – GIGABIT WIFI’s NEXT BIG DEAL: Multiuser MIMO
“HIGHER WIFI SPEED, MORE USERS, BETTER EXPERIENCE”
The 802.11ac standard exponentially boosts average data speed and sustainability, increasing the capability of the average internet connection. Long distances and lag-time become obsolete problems with the gigabit Wi-Fi.
With 11ac, channel width increases from 80 MHz (compared to the 20 MHz for 11n), and 160 MHz wide for Wave 2. Wave 1 supports up to 4 spatial streams (previously only 3 with 1 user in 11n); Wave 2 supports
11ac increases network capacity and amount of provided access points, bringing efficiency to data spread and usage.
