The New Wifi – 1GB Throughput

Over the last few years bva has had to support many different types of wifi with many several different users expectations of speeds.  Obviously the two most popular over the last 10 years have been G and N.  There are many types of wireless routers and access points out there that have finally become stable and reliable.  About two months ago bva got visibility into a new type of wifi called 802.11ac where we were able to test and see with our own eyes what it could do.  This new wireless on the 5 GHz band and see’s LAN throughput of at least 1 gigabit per second with a maximum single link throughput of at least 500 megabits per second (500 Mbit/s).

This is a great product for users that want to replicate data or obviously have high speed bandwidth.  Having a GB connection via wireless to the internal servers is something that I would thought we would not see this quickly so we here at bva are quite impressed.
