Detailed Description
(Manufacturer # HW12ACU )
2.4GHz Wireless 802.11b/g/n is the most commonly used wireless standard. Because of this popularity, interference and lag are common in the 2.4GHz network, especially in areas with a lot of wireless networks. 5GHz Wireless-AC was designed to get past this interference. Using a different frequency allows 5GHz Wireless-AC to maintain high speeds and throughput. The trade off of 5GHz Wireless-AC is the range is reduced when compared to 2.4GHz wireless networks. Wireless-AC is built on a Dual-Band standard. Dual-Band Technology provides maximum flexibility allowing selection of the popular 2.4GHz frequency for long range applications or selecting of the faster, less-crowded 5.0GHz frequency for data intensive applications. With HW12ACU Wireless-AC, you have the option to connect to 5.0GHz network for high speed streaming or 2.4GHz for more distanced connection.
Wave-2 Complaint Mu-MIMO
Multi-User, Multiple-input, multiple-output technology allows a supported router to communicate with multiple devices such as smartphones, tablets, smart-tvs, computers simultaneously. This should drastically improve your WiFi performance. The HW12ACU will operate faster because all devices on the network have less time to wait to get data from the router, thus reducing lag and buffering when watching video, playing games, etc.
WiFi Multimedia (WMM Wireless QoS)
The HW12ACU supports WMM (WMM Wireless QoS). This means that this feature, when enabled on your supported router, gives priority to voice and video traffic over WiFi. Any WiFi devices that are video messaging or watching streaming video will have higher priority over other internet traffic. This should allow a smoother and clearer video for the user.
