Are You Ready for 802.11ac Wi-Fi?
You may be familiar with the technical terms for the IEEE committees that create communications standards such as 802.11b, 802.11g, 802.11n and so forth. These are the most commonly known commercial Wi-Fi standards for Local Area Networks (LAN) to create a Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN.) The speed of your WLAN is becoming more and more important at work, for large PDF, graphics and database files, and personal use, large music and video downloads. The latest high-speed standard is 802.11ac. For you to benefit from 802.11ac you have to have a router devices that transmit 802.11ac as well as wireless network adaptors in each machine that will received and transmit 802.11ac. These new devices are usually capable of support multiple standards such as g and n. But, I highly recommend you drop 802.11b devices as they can cause your WLAN to degrade significantly. For more great information, and to get a basic understanding of this new standard I recommend you read Yardena Arar's article from Windows Secrets,
or pass it along to your IT person.
