When a new development comes along, related to any technology, the proper foundation must exist if we are to understand it well. Today, I want to present the basic facts related to the new 802.11ac draft amendment of the 802.11-2012 standard. The purpose is to answer the five most common questions asked about 802.11ac:
- Why create a new physical layer (PHY)?
- In what frequency band will the PHY operate?
- What new capabilities or technologies are introduced?
- Who will benefit from it?
- When will we see it?
