With the first Wave 2 802.11ac access points hitting the market, Wi-Fi goes gigabit in a big way. Yet to realize such speeds means maximizing a number of new sophisticated RF capabilities that the vast majority of today’s Wi-Fi access points are simply ill equipped to exploit. Two of these key features are transmit beamforming (TxBF) and multi-user MIMO (MU-MIMO), which effectively requires TxBF to work. Meanwhile, MU-MIMO clients are coming fast. We’ll get a little geeky so strap yourself in. It’s important. With Wave 2, multi-user MIMO with transmit beamforming is designed to boost network capacity and strengthen Wi-Fi signals. That’s especially important as Wi-Fi clients explode and quickly take on new features and functions that the 802.11ac standard brings.
