Greater wireless throughput and denser networks of wireless access points (APs) are needed to satisfy burgeoning bandwidth demands. 802.11n Wi-Fi version, offering 300Mbps to 450Mbps maximum theoretical speeds per radio, has matured. Enterprises have been steadily installing it since 2009. But even its generous capacity is already being tested in some organizations and soon will be in others, driving the IEEE to develop a 1Gbps WLAN standard, called “802.11ac: Enhancements for Very High Throughput for Operation in Bands Below 6 GHz.” The 802.11ac standard specifies WLANs running exclusively in the 5GHz band, so it is backward-compatible with 802.11n devices running at 5GHz.
