IEEE 802.11ac MU-MIMO Wireless LAN cells with legacy clients
MetadataShow full item record
We provide an empirical evaluation of an IEEE 802.11ac Wireless LocalArea Network (WLAN) cell with Multiple User Multiple Input MultipleOutput (MU-MIMO) technology. We conducted our experiments on a testbed comprising consumer equipment under different office scenarios using 40MHz and 80MHz channels. This is the first performance study of MU-MIMO with 802.11ac in an operational scenario using a commercial access point. We find that, for clients that do not support MU-MIMO,operating in a cell that has MU-MIMO enabled may result in reduced performance.
