Siemon webinar explains new IEEE 802.11ac 5 GHz Wi-Fi

Siemon, a leading global infrastructure specialist, continues its free webinar series with an educational update on the newly published IEEE 802.11ac Very High Throughput 5 GHz Wireless Standard. This latest informative webinar, entitled 'IEEE 802.11ac 5 GHz Wireless Update and Structured Cabling Implications', will be presented by Siemon's Valerie Maguire and will take place on March 6, 2014.

Offering users the potential to double their current wireless speeds, the new 802.11ac standard has far reaching implications with respect to cabling infrastructure design. With the introduction of 256 quadrature amplitude modulation (QAM), which allows more bits to be encoded in a single symbol, an eventual 160 MHz channel bandwidth and a maximum of eight spatial streams, 802.11ac will immediately support gigabit Wi-Fi with the potential to theoretically deliver 6.93 Gb/s wireless data rates in the future. For the first time, the specification of high performance copper cabling supporting access layer switches and uplink connections will be critical to achieving multi-gigabit throughput and fully supporting the power and capacity of these next generation wireless access points.

"We are proud to continue our complimentary webinar series with this engaging and exciting session on the latest wireless standard. All applicable terminology will be explained and clearly presented for a wide range of technical and non-technical audiences," says David Wall, global integrated marketing manager at Siemon. "As part of Siemon's commitment to keeping industry professionals and their customers informed, this educational webinar will answer questions concerning emerging 802.11ac technology trends, products and capabilities. The webinar will also provide a question and answer session for participants to interact with our expert presenter, Valerie Maguire, to get the specific information they need surrounding this latest wireless technology."
