Belkin gearing up for 802.11ac debut meaning three times faster Wi-Fi speeds

Belkin has announced that it is pressing ahead with plans to be one of the first technology solutions to tackle the 802.11ac Wireless Networking Market. 

Its wireless dual-band router will mean Wi-Fi speeds three times faster than existing 802.11n technology thanks to Broadcom’s fifth generation or 5G Wi-Fi chips.

Still very much in its infancy, the 802.11ac technology is set to revolutionise the Wi-Fi world with faster streaming, downloads and file synching while ensuring there’s less drainage on battery life – particularly relevant to smartphone and tablet devices.

Of course it’s far more complex than that, and you can read more about what 802.11ac will mean by reading Pocket-lint’s feature on the technology here, but Belkin’s strides make for existing times. 

As Michael Hurlston, Broadcom’s SVP of Wireless Combo Connectivity, beams: "By incorporating Broadcom's 5G Wi-Fi chips, Belkin's new products will improve home wireless performance, provide faster video streaming, enable simultaneous connection of multiple devices to the network, and deliver broader coverage-all with a longer battery life."

Belkin’s ac router range will begin rolling out through Europe in August 2012. Expect other technology outfits to follow suit.
