Deep Dive into 802.11ac

The newest Wi-Fi innovation, 802.11ac, is aggressively making its way into enterprise wireless networks, and is already being touted as Gigabit Wi-Fi.  Will it really deliver gigabit speeds for the enterprise? Not a chance.  But that won’t stop manufacturers from flooding the market with hype and half-true promises. This presentation prepares you for the onslaught by separating hype from reality for each of 802.11ac’s advancements.  It will cover essential migration and design considerations for those planning an upgrade to 11ac; it will show who can and can’t deliver on the promise of Gigabit Wi-Fi; and it will show you why 802.11ac will, ironically, actually prolong the viability of current 802.11n networks.
