FAQ
Q:
A:

Is it be backward compatible with 11a/n?


Yes. 11ac is fully backward compatible with 802.11a/n, using
protection mechanisms with 11a/n frame formats.

Q:
A:

What about 2.4 GHz?


Initially, dual-band APs will be 802.11n in 2.4G and 802.11ac in
5G. 11ac may eventually be introduced to 2.4G for benefits from
added spatial streams or 256-QAM.

Q:
A:

Will it require new hardware?


Yes. For every supplier, all APs and clients will need new
hardware, whether complete AP replacement or modular radio
add-ons. Controllers or management software may be software
upgradeable.

11ac in Waves
Wave 1 Q3, 2013

Wave 1+

Includes all Wave 1 features, with additional chip improvements

80 / 160 MHz channels

Twice the capacity of 80 MHz 802.11ac

3+ spatial streams

Likely 4 spatial streams. N-fold throughput gain for high-end clients,


more flexibility/capacity for MU-MIMO

MU-MIMO

Up to 4x capacity boost, multiplies aggregate capacity

Net gain

Us

o With per-packet adaptive antenna control, polarization diversity, and active channel
selection techniques, Ruckus APs maximize the potential of 256-QAM with 11ac
o Greater SNR/SINR increases the useful downlink range of 256-QAM
o Adaptive PD-MRC and higher uplink receive sensitivity increase uplink range of 256-QAM
o APs select channels with more capacity and less noise and interference

o 802.11ac introduces the possibility of 20 MHz, 40 MHz, 80 MHz, or 160 MHz channels
o Each 40, 80, or 160 MHz channel will have primary 20, 40, and 80 MHz subchannels
o It becomes increasingly difficult to determine what channel widths are optimal for each
environment based on spectral reuse, the number of APs, transmit power, client
device types and channel support, etc.
o Manual channel planning becomes VERY DIFFICULT
DYNAMIC OPERATION

TIME

o The dynamic nature of RF environments raises new concerns for both ongoing
channel width settings (should we use 20s, 40s, 80s?) as well as AP channel
assignment adaptation (what primary 20/40/80 channels should I use at any moment
in time?)
o APs must be able to select the best primary 20, 40, and 80 MHz channels for their
own environment, or possibly change from 80 MHz operation to 40 MHz
CHANNELFLY
o ChannelFly addresses both problems (channel width and channel assignment) by
o Actively measuring performance on each channel
o Adaptively changing as environmental conditions fluctuate
o Discovering the best channel settings for the environment, the client device types, count,
and channel width support, and the amount of traffic at each bandwidth setting

BeamFlex-Enhanced MU-MIMO

3 clients concurrently communicate


with AP, each on a dedicated spatial
stream (and antenna)

Standard MU-MIMO
All clients hear all antennas
o Poor signal isolation per client
o Lower SNR per link = lower data rates
o Marginal benefit to capacity

MU-MIMO enhanced with BeamFlex


Directional antenna element for each client
o Better signal separation
o Higher sustained data rates
o Increased AP capacity

Questions to Consider
UPGRADE TIMELINES

o NOW is the right time to consider long-term plans for Wave-1 and Wave2 of 802.11ac
o What is the expected lifespan of the APs?
o If an upgrade is essential to business operation, does the cost/performance of
2x2 11n (e.g. 7372) solve the near-term need and enable earlier upgrade to 11ac
Wave-2 with lower total CAPEX?
APPLICATION NEEDS

o What are the application needs, and what solution meets those needs
with the lowest total CAPEX and OPEX?
o What are the applications being used and added in the next few years?
o Will the devices that support those applications be capable of utilizing 11ac
features?
o When is the lifecycle and upgrade timing of existing devices?
WAVE-1 vs. WAVE-2

o Wave-1 features are incrementally beneficial


o 256-QAM boosts rate/range for 11ac clients
o 80 MHz channels may not be useful in many environments with moderate
client/AP density

o Wave-2 features multiply capacity and performance with fewer APs


o MU-MIMO provides gains for single-stream devices like tablets and
smartphones
