Guest View: Will 802.11ac stab you in the back(haul)?

Hans Pang, Director of Systems Engineering, Ruckus Wireless | Feb. 13, 2014
A deeper look into wireless network traffic characteristics show 802.11ac will work just fine for your network’s backbone

Stop gig stressing.

The moral of the story is this: While theoretical scenarios could strain a single gigabit backhaul, there's just no way that real-world client mixtures, RF environments, application requirements, and network infrastructures are going to saturate the full capacity of a high-performing full-duplex gigabit link. So don't be fooled by vendors wanting you to upgrade your wired networks based on theoretical scenarios and arguments. Just say no.
