Get 802.11ac Wi-Fi Smart

Great Wi-Fi experiences start with Intel® Wireless-AC

The new 802.11ac Wi-Fi standard delivers a quantum leap in performance over 802.11n with up to three times faster speeds, more capacity for more devices, better performance at further distances, improved reliability for fewer dropped connections, and lower power consumption for longer battery life.

Don’t assume the 2 in 1, Ultrabook™, laptop, or All-in-One PC you are considering includes 802.11ac inside. You need to make the right installed Wi-Fi adapter choice to future-proof your device investment.1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10

How to Be Smart About Your Wi-Fi Choice

Streams

802.11ac Wi-Fi supports multiple radios and antennas that can transmit and receive multiple data streams. In Wi-Fi vernacular, these configurations are noted as 1x1, 2x2, and so on. More antennas and data streams mean faster speeds, fewer dead zones, fewer dropped connections, and better coverage. You save time, view smoother HD videos, and roam more freely with fewer interruptions. A 2x2 802.11ac adapter reaches a maximum data rate of up to 867 Mbps—three times faster than 802.11n.

Dual band

Dual band uses both 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz Wi-Fi frequencies. 5 GHz delivers five times the capacity of the legacy 2.4 GHz with less congestion and interference. The 2.4 GHz frequency is a crowded space with limited capacity and subject to interference from all kinds of other wireless devices. Dual band 802.11ac Wi-Fi adapters let you take advantage of 5 GHz capabilities while enabling you to connect to legacy 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi hotspots when needed.

Throughput

Wireless networks don’t perform anywhere near their raw “theoretical” maximum data rates. They are affected by all kinds of things—network overhead, user congestion, distance, obstacles, and interference. Think throughput when considering a Wi-Fi product. Network overhead alone takes 30 percent to 50 percent of available bandwidth—but wait, there's more. Wi-Fi networks are shared. The more users at a Wi-Fi hotspot, the more traffic they generate, the slower the speed for everyone.
