Wireless AC - the world's fastest Wi-Fi technology
Greater speed & coverage
Wireless AC broadcasts on the 2.4GHz and the entire 5 GHz spectrum, where there is less congestion and interference from competing technologies.
This means there is more bandwidth available, plus Wireless AC channels are wider and carry a lot more data, giving you a seamless network speed of up to 5334 Mbps* compared to 450Mbps** that you will experience with a standard ISP provided Wireless N Router.
* Combined speeds of the DCS-895L at 2167Mbps for each of the two 5GHz bands + 1000Mbps on the 2.4GHz band.
** Typical speed experienced with 802.11n routers.
Stronger Beamforming signal
The way in which radio signals are transmitted is also changing. Out go omni-directional antennas, broadcasting every which way they can, in favour of “beamforming” technology which aims wireless signals directly at Wi-Fi devices. This provides a much stronger signal that is especially beneficial for mobile devices.
Wave2 & MU-MIMO
Wave2 of the 11ac standard includes the advancement of speed to 2.34 Gbps (up from 1.3 Gbps) in the 5 GHz band. It also supports multiuser multiple input, multiple output (MU-MIMO)...
Routers that support MU-MIMO have the ability to talk to multiple devices at the same time, which means it can transmit to a smartphone and to other devices such as tablets, smart TVs, notebooks, at the same time.
