Technical Overview of New Cisco Catalyst Multigigabit Switches

(Original Webinar March 4, 2015)

The new 802.11ac wave 2 standard combines multiple channels on the 5GHz frequency band to provide a wide 160MHz bandwidth and up to eight spatial streams to deliver superfast wireless offerings (up to 6.8 Gbps), which is faster than the gigabit speed supported by most existing cabling systems (Cat 5e). Without addressing the need for the superfast wireless speed, the Ethernet connection between 802.11ac wave 2 access points and the switch port will become a bottleneck.

The new Cisco Catalyst Multigigabit Switches solve this challenge with Cisco technology innovation that allows support of 802.11ac wave 2 speeds without replacing the current Cat 5e cabling system. The multigigabit switches also support Power over Ethernet (PoE) for energy-efficient wireless access point deployments.

Join this webcast to master the technical knowledge to prepare for faster and more powerful 802.11ac wave 2 wireless deployments, without having to rip and replace your existing cabling system.
