PUTTING THE SUPER IN INFORMATION SUPERHIGHWAY MONITORING THE ROAD TO 802.11ac WIRELESS STEPS ON THE GAS ENTERPRISE CLASS 802.11ac ACCESS POINT SHIPMENTS ARE SPIKING. (C;) 2013 250,000 ACCESS POINTS 2014 1,600,000 * 802.11ac ACCESS POINTS 802.11ac IS EXPECTED TO ENTIRELY REPLACE 802.11n BY 2018. 40% 70% 100% ADOPTION ADOPTION ADOPTION 2014 2015 2018 802.11ac - Wireless as fast as wired networks. 802.11ac = 1.3 Gigabit Wired = 1 Gigabit LIFE IN THE FAST LANE 802.11ac – VS – 802.11n SPEED INCREASED 3X - FIND INFORMATION FASTER 1.3 Gbps 0.45 Gbps CAPACITY TRIPLED - PLACE MORE USERS PER ACCESS POINT 90-100 clients 30-40 clients DATA RANGE TWICE AS STRONG - GET A BETTER SIGNAL 400 Mbps at 75 feet 200Mbps at 75 ft USES MORE OF THE SPECTRUM - INCREASED BANDWIDTH FOR MORE USERS 802.11ac has 8 multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) antennas or spatial streams at 80MHZ wide (which can be combined to make 160MHZ channels) 802.11n uses 4 multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) antennas or spatial streams at 40MHZ wide SLOWER TRAFFIC KEEP RIGHT AVOID SPEED BUMPS ON THE ON-RAMP TO 802.11ac.
