MU-MIMO, New Definition of Wi-Fi

Stepping up from 802.11ac, the second generation Wave 2 technology introduces Multi-User MIMO (MU-MIMO). This is an important WiFi development that enables an AP to communicate with multiple clients at a time offering 300% performance for a 3x3 AP.


Generation-2 Transmit Beamforming benefits overall networking

Transmit Beamforming (TxBF) technology is another key to implement reliable high-density Wi-Fi connection. It increases overall network transmission data rates, which benefits not only MU-MIMO clients but also all existing clients.
