Catching the Perfect Wave of 802.11ac

Time to Move to Reliable, Next-Generation, Enterprise Wi-Fi Networks

802.11ac has quickly become the current Wi-Fi standard as 802.11n gradually moves closer to being a legacy standard. It is therefore important to understand the key features and benefits of 802.11ac.

This paper explains the top reasons to move to 11ac and helps you understand how Silex is bringing an extremely reliable, next-generation, enterprise-grade SDIO Wi-Fi module "SX-SDMAC" based on industry-leading Wave2 MU-MIMO 802.11ac technology.
