CES 2012: Buffalo Makes the First Public Demonstration of the Forthcoming IEEE 802.11ac Wi-Fi Connection at 800 Mbps

The next step in wireless connectivity will be the IEEE 802.11ac standard, also known as 5G WiFi, which started to be developed one year ago. The goal of this forthcoming standard is to achieve transfer rates in the gigabit range. Using the 5 GHz band and three antennae, Buffalo was able to demonstrate this connection at a real data transfer rate (throughput) of 800 Mbps, with a theoretical maximum transfer rate of over 1.3 Gbps. According to this manufacturer, they will be able to release their first IEEE 802.11ac router, named AirStation WZR-1750H, by the end of the year, in the USD 200-250 price range. This router will also be backwards-compatible with IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n standards and will have five Gigabit Ethernet ports.
