Cisco Intros Wi-fi Access Points Supporting 1Gb/s

May 6, 2013

San Jose - Apr 30, 2013 - Cisco Systems has unveiled new products based on the next-generation 802.11ac wireless networking standard that offer data transfer speeds of up to 1Gb/s - fast enough to download significant amounts of Web content and run streaming video simultaneously.

Demand continues to increase for bandwidth, and by 2017, as mobile network connection speeds increase, the average bit rate of content accessed through the mobile network will increase. High-definition video will be more prevalent, and the proportion of streamed content as compared to side-loaded content is also expected to increase with average mobile network connection speed, according to Cisco research.
