802.11ac versus 802.11n

802.11ac also has a distinct advantage when it comes to signal strength and data range. 802.11ac provides 400 Mbsp at 75 feet, while 802.11n provides only 200 Mbsp at the same distance. Additionally, 802.11ac has eight multi-input multi-output (MIMO) antennas or spatial streams at 80 MHz, which allows for a significant increase in user bandwidth.

With the invasion of mobile devices in the enterprise, organizations are struggling to meet the demands placed upon their networks. On top of that, ever-changing Wi-Fi standards (n-> ac waves 1 through 3 and now talk of z) make it difficult to keep up, and know when to upgrade. In this slideshow, WildPackets defines the current state of affairs with Wi-Fi, outlining the path to adoption of 802.11ac and describing possible pain points and how to fix them.
