If you don’t already know about 802.11ac, InformationWeek provides an overview of this new wireless standard.
According to the article, which of these statements are myth and which are fact?
- 802.11ac performance advantages are minimal
- 802.11ac requires ripping and replacing my wired infrastructure
- Not many 802.11ac clients are available
- 802.11ac is 5 GHz only and leaves 2.4 GHz clients stranded
- The first wave of 802.11ac will be short-lived
All are untrue, of course.
Take a look at the Convergence College Network’s very own Bill Saichek and Karl Dietrich providing an overview of wireless, which includes a discussion of standards. This was a talk they gave at last year’s HI TEC.
And check out this technical white paper provided by Cisco for more in-depth info on the new standard.
