Both higher education and K-12 have immediate needs for 802.11ac WAVE 2. Wi-Fi dense user environments have been, and continue to be one of the top of mind issues for network engineers and IT administrators in all education environments, and though 802.11n and 802.11ac Wave 1 have provided some relief, 802.11ac MU-MIMO can be the tool they have been looking for to address this long standing issue.

This webinar will cover the progression of the Wi-Fi standard, from 802.11n, to 802.11ac, the technology and how to get the most from the technology you choose. MU-MIMO, Multi-user MIMO represents a significant technology advancement, but what can you expect to achieve in your environment, what do you have to consider to get the most out of it?

Join us for this educational webinar, which will provide you the knowledge you need to be MU-MIMO Ninja.
