Started certification for 802.11ac WiFi standard
Today, started the certification process for 802.11ac WiFi, class of technology that enables data transfer rates up to 1.3 Gbps through the movement of information via three streams of 433Mbps each, resulting in the transfer of quality movies HD in less than four minutes.
The organization WiFi Alliance, formed by almost all relevant technology companies in the industry , started the certification even though the technology is already available on the market for just under a year , but now note that the speed limit 802.11ac WiFi 1.3 Gbps is not, since it’s technically possible to bring connectivity to even higher levels.
All depends on who implements WiFi 802.11ac: for example, the manufacturer was able to use the standard Quantenna to transfer flows 1.7 Gbps using four instead of three, which speaks of the possibilities that have yet to conquer the market 802.11ac during 2013, which will be pushed through the WiFi Alliance certification waiting to be completed very soon.
