Wireless networks are an integral part of our everyday lives.
Whether we’re connecting to the internet on a smartphone, watching TV from across the room with a tablet, or just simply chatting with friends and family via Skype video call, wireless networks have made it possible for us to do all these things without being tied down by cords.
Wireless networking is also playing a significant role in how businesses operate:
In this blog post, we will take a closer look at one specific type of wireless network: IEE 802.11ac. What is IEE 802.11ac?
The IEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers) 802.11ac standard specifies a wireless network that operates at speeds up to 11 gigabits per second using the unlicensed frequency band, as well as two different bandwidths: 80-MHz or 160-MHz channels with support for channel bonding by operators to achieve higher data rates..
The protocol uses orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) modulation on either an 80 mHz wide channel or a 160 MHz wide channel in 20 overlapping subchannels. It’s also backwards compatible with previous standards such as 802.11a/b/g/n networks; however it’s much faster than those legacy standards
