UNSW deploys 802.11ac Wi-Fi
blog It’s a slow process, but gradually the 802.11ac Wi-Fi standard is making its way into consumer and corporate locations to gradually upgrade 802.11a/b/n installations. 802.11ac wireless routers are being sold in stores and mobile devices are gradually getting support. One of the first major organisations in Australia to deploy the technology en-masse will be the University of NSW, which told Computerworld (we recommend you click here for the full story):
“The faster speeds will be made possible with the introduction of a Cisco 802.11 ac enterprise-grade cloud-managed access point. This upgrade will take place by June 2013.”
I have to say, this is a pretty awesome deal for students at UNSW, as long as they don’t limit the background speeds too far. Wi-Fi reception on campuses that I’ve studied on (including UNSW itself) has always been relatively patchy and inconsistent, especially when you’re looking to stream video from sites like YouTube. If this upgrade can make UNSW’s campus Wi-Fi network rock solid, I know there will be many thousands of students pathetically grateful. Nice one.
