Gigabit WLANs Need Gigabit WLAN Analysis

802.11ac – the newest Wi-Fi standard – is faster, more agile and more robust than any of its predecessors. Wi-Fi at the speed of wired networks is something the industry’s been striving for and something every person who’s ever used wireless can appreciate.
