Miercom: IEEE 802.11ac Wave 2 Access Points

White Paper Published By: Cisco

Published:  Apr 04, 2016
Type:  White Paper
Length:  23 pages

Miercom was engaged to perfirm independent, hands-on, comparative testing of competitive IEEE 802.11ac Wave 2-based WiFi Access Points (APs) from Cisco Systems, Aruba Networks and Ruckus Wireless. 

This report summarizes the results of the Wave 2 AP comparative testing in these areas:

- Client density: Downlink throughput as the number of client per AP scales from 10 to 100. 

- Single vs Multi-User MIMO: Downlink throughput for MU-MIMO (Multi-User, Multiple-Input Multiple-Output), a hallmark of 802.11ac Wave 2, vs Single-User (SU-MIMO) environments.

- 1 Gbps+ Link Aggregation: Tests found that Wave 2 APs can support more than 1Gbps of aggregate downlink throughput, tested over two 1-Gbps LAG (link aggregation) connections.
