The latest wireless standard to become an omnipresent entity is the 802.11 ac wireless standard. According to several details, this particular wireless standard has a maximum theoretical bandwidth of nearly 7Gbps (gigabits per second) when connected to the 5 GHz frequency. However, do to the current limitations, the initial products that are being rolled out can only provide a theoretical maximum speed 1.3Gbps (3 x 433.3Mbps streams with 80MHz channels).

That being said, conditions for achieving this particular form of speed will be extremely difficult to find. However, while the 802.11 ac continues to start proliferating in popularity by being incorporated in to smart phones, routers and other devices, the next generation wireless standard, the 802.11 ad is going to deliver bandwidth on a whole new echelon. However, how does a new wireless standard enable VoIP connections and IP Phones to perform better? Let us find out.

“Dual band connectivity reduces interference from other devices, leading to clearer voice and video connection

Currently, wireless connectivity exists in two frequencies; the 2.4 GHz and the 5 GHz frequency. The 5 GHz frequency is present on more expensive products because of a particular reason. That reason is that all devices that are transmitting radio waves are transmitting them at the 2.4 GHz, by default.

While the range of the 2.4 GHz band reaches further than the 5 GHz frequency, it also causes a lot of interference with the remainder of devices that are running on the same frequency. This interference by the overlapping of radio waves from different devices, which ends up damaging the overall call quality within the organization.

In addition, conference video calls cannot be achieved with fluidity and stability, which frustrates both employees and their clients. A better wireless standard product supports both frequencies, which will automatically compel the business to start using the 5 GHz frequency for better VoIP calling and video performance.

Sure, the range of this particular frequency is shorter compared that the 2.4 GHz, but this issue can be mitigated by installing access points that also support the 5 GHz frequency. As a result, Wave-tel’s products that utilize the internet connection’s bandwidth will allow employees and clients to continue their conversations uninterrupted.

New wireless standard to improve overall connectivity performance

The successor to the 802.11 ac will be the 802.11 ad wireless standard. While Wave-tel VoIP phones will not able to take advantage of the technology just yet, not long ago, the leading Android phone maker in the world,Samsung has announced that it is entering the 60 GHz WiFi technology industry and will roll out products that will possess the 802.11 ad wireless adapters.

The speed upgrade of the 802.11 ad wireless standard is phenomenal, being able to provide a download speed of 575 megabytes per second. That speed mounts to five times the maximum speed currently being experienced onthe 5 GHz frequency on 802.11 ac devices.Not only is the download speed impressive, but the exchanging of packets at an extremely high rate will allow Wave-tel VoIP phone users to experience call and video calling performance that they have never experienced before.
