LETS FACE IT -- the world needs more bandwidth & speed when it comes to our networks. Whether its on a government level, or within various corporations, or inside your very own home or enterprise, this need blatantly exists. We all want private wireless networks and we want them to handle dataintensive tasks such as video streaming and hard drive back up. To address all of these needs, we now have the latest and greatest local wireless standard -- 802.11ac. This standard offers some distinct advantages over the 802.11n wireless gear that youre probably using today and, putting aside the nitty gritty details for now, the bottom line is speed. But dont assume that you are going to get a Gigabit of throughput necessarily.

THE MARKET HAS SPOKEN: Ethernet is the de-facto IT fabric standard around the world. If market predictions, customer tendencies, or current purchasing patterns hold any weight, Ethernets success is set to continue into the future as well. Ethernets dominance should come as no surprise; with the ability to support many storage protocols (i.e. iSCSI, FCoE, NFS, SMB/CIFS) over the same wire, it is an easy choice to deploy, and helps future proof against changing infrastructure requirements, workloads, and data transports.
