802.11ac Video Series – Beamforming
Aerohive’s Director of Product Management and the author of “Definitive Guide to 802.11 Wireless Networks” by O’Reily, Matthew Gast has just completed writing “802.11ac: A Survival Guide”. With the arrival of 802.11ac technology and Matthew’s passion for discussing it, we decided to do a 7 part video series on the topic.
It has been said that the motivating force behind the creation of 802.11ac is Multi-User MIMO, which depends upon beamforming. This sixth video looks at two types of beamforming – single user and multi user, and the distinctions between the two. Matthew will discuss how beamforming works, how 802.11ac beamforming is different, and what it means for the future of Multi-User MIMO.
