A new wireless
standard is set to be launched next year that will bring 3 times the
speed more speed when compared to the current fastest Wifi standard
802.11n. The new 802.11ac will transmit wireless signals on the 5Ghz
band, providing a larger range, and faster throughput for multiple HD video streams and more. It will also come with a much more power for transmission through walls.
From a technical perspective a typical
3×3 array of 802.11ac antennas using an 80-MHz channel should, within an
interference-free room, transmit over 1 Gbits/s. That’s about three
times the throughout of 802.11n, which can transmit about 300 Mbits/s
under the same conditions. Using 160-MHz channels, Patel said, the
throughput could push 1.2 Gbits/s or slightly higher.
You can expect to see new devices using the new 802.11ac Wifi standard to start appearing early next year.
