802.11ac The perfect solution for Schools.

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 Major Features Enhancements
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

The cumulative benefit of 802.11ac features will enable Wi-Fi solutions to meet today’s demand for high capacity and high quality mobile real-time applications like video and voice.


The other optimizations in 802.11ac also include:Systems for Schools


Denser amplitude modulation – 256-QAM - four times denser than 802.11n further increasing the bit rate density achieved by 802.11ac.

More spatial streams - up to eight spatial streams, further increasing the data rate for each radio. (Note that first-generation silicon will support only three spatial streams.

Beamforming to fortify RF connections – increases reliability of the AP/client link.

Multi-user MIMO – supports simultaneous transmissions to multiple clients and maximizes RF band utilization. Up to four distinct clients can receive data simultaneously from a single AP at full channel data rate.
