The 802.11ac Radio Module is based on the draft 5 of the IEEE 802.11ac specification. This module provides the following features.
The innovative, modular design, allows any existing 3600 Series access point to be field upgraded and immediately expand the available bandwidth for new 802.11ac devices while supporting all your traditional wireless devices on 802.11a/b/g/n.
With this flexibility, companies can grow their network bandwidth dynamically, as and when its needed, whether for pervasive coverage or spot coverage based on the high bandwidth demands of their user base. This may include , areas of high-user congregation, such as libraries, cafeterias, auditoriums or areas where high bandwidth applications such as video conferencing or large file imaging is used. Companies will have full control for how, where, and when to expand their wireless network.
Cisco Aironet Access Point Module for 802.11ac, the industrys first 802.11ac radio, offers a wire-like performance ideal for supporting HD video and high-client-density deployments.
