We’re barely out of the gates with 802.11n, and we already have two new emerging standards that are likely to shake up the wireless world: 802.11ac and 802.11ad. 802.11ac is in many ways a "lessons learned" from 802.11n. It employs many of the same techniques to achieve even greater data rates, while requiring less power than with 802.11n – one of its biggest challenges. 802.11ad will expand data rates even further, taking advantage of new spectrum, which will enable entirely new uses cases for 802.11.

The future of Wi-Fi remains very strong. It is already way beyond critical mass, and with 802.11ac and 802.11ad it will remain the go-to-solution for the last 100 yards of any data network, and perhaps more. Users are now dependent on Wi-Fi, and there's nothing even close in the market that's ready to take its place. Please join us to discover how these new specifications will further entrench 802.11, where they’re likely to be used first, and whether or not you should be preparing yourself for a technology upgrade in the near future.

In this web seminar, we will cover:

- Current timeline in 802.11 development
- Characteristics of 802.11ac and 802.11ad
- Improvements over 802.11n
- Potential use cases for 802.11ac and 802.11ad

What you will learn:

- Whether 802.11ac and 802.11ad will have an enterprise footprint
- How 802.11ac and 802.11ad will integrate with current 802.11 deployments
- When you should be planning for a technology upgrade
