The New Stuff


Watch out for the new WiFi standard 802.11ac

Just like the internet, WiFi is a utility that we have come, not only to rely on, but to actually expect to be available when we need it in various places we visit. WiFi has become more prominent in our lives because of the popularity of various mobile devices that now allow us to access the internet wherever we are. WiFi has also practically replaced wired networks at home since it is easier to set up and allows multiple devices to connect to it.

The current WiFi standard is 802.11n, which began to roll out to the public in 2007. The N standard allows for a throughput of up to 300 megabits per second for every stream. It’s fast but with the current data demands of internet users, it may not be enough. Thus, a new standard is going to be introduced. The 802.11ac standard promises an increase in the bandwidth to 433 to 867 megabits per second per stream. Aside from the speed boost, the new standard also promises that you’ll get more reliable connections, which is probably the most common complaint of any WiFi user.

But here’s a slight catch. The 802.11ac standard has not yet been finalized. The final standards will be finalized by 2013. But just like with the draft N scenario, routers that support 802.11ac will begin appearing in stores in just a few months.

I would recommend that you not jump on the 802.11ac bandwagon yet until firmer standard specifications are already in place.
