The plaque ends! thanks to 802.11ac, Gigabit Wi-Fi comes in your home as well as corporate networks. Of course, countries with Gbps connections.
Las Vegas - Last year, Broadcom started working on 802.11ac chipsets that could reach speeds of up to 1.3Gbps.
Routers and systems that could come and support 802.11ac, however it remained a dream. 2013 will change everything. The year of Gigabit Wi-Fi came. This is because 802.11ac will eventually be widely adopted. Cisco Cisco / Linksys, D-Link, Netgear have all released compatible routers with 802.11ac.
In addition, Broadcom comes into play but appears to be facing serious competition for the Wi-Fi chipset. Qualcomm. CES Qualcomm has demonstrated the StreamBoost 802.11ac Atheros chipset. D-Link has already agreed to offer such routers. Competition between them brings lower prices and more devices. Regarding Wi-Fi policy tactics is just as important as the success of technology. Although 802.11ac is not ready yet is much closer than it has been so far.
Most importantly, the Wi-Fi Alliance and the Wireless Gigabit Alliance (WiGig) have announced that they will consolidate WiGig certification and development under the Wi-Fi Alliance. Wi-Gig also worked on 802.11ad speeds, a generation beyond 802.11ac, which will eventually bring up to 7Gbps speeds to your Wi-Fi. This can only be comforting according to today's 802.11Mbps 300n networks which give speeds of 802.11ac gigabit and above.
All this is nice and good, but you should have the network in principle (ah, Greece) computers, devices and tablets that can work with 802.11ac. Sure, some will buy 802.11ac adjustments, but most will not do the trick. Luckily for Gigabit Wi-Fi, computer and device vendors have taken 802.11ac as a fashion. It seems that Apple will support 802.11ac within 2013. And, of course, since Apple does, surely other suppliers will follow.
As Craig Mathias said Farpoint Group Chairman, what may be more important for businesses with 802.11ac if properly developed is that it will bring '' overall reliability and .... capacity. (to download the pdf required registration). This means meeting the different needs of a large and growing number of users with an equally growing number of devices per user as well as powerful combinations of applications. Requirements and not only for the maximum feeder possible ".
Speed can be "terrible" but for many network administrators to be able to provide more reliable and powerful Wi-Fi to their users could be the best news they will get this year. For them 802.11ac will not come soon enough.
