Product and Performance Information


802.11ac 2x2 160MHz enables 1733 Mbps maximum theoretical data rates, 2X faster than standard 802.11ac 2x2 80MHz (867Mbps) and nearly 12x faster than baseline 1x1 BGN (150Mbps) Wi-Fi as documented in IEEE 802.11 wireless standard specifications, and require the use of similarly configured 802.11ac wireless network routers or better. To achieve Gigabit wireless speeds the network requires a wireless router/access point that supports 160MHz channels.
