Hoe can data rate be higher than uplink.?

Ap-315 hava a data rate of 2.5 gbps and 1G uplink.


How is it possible an Ap having 1G Wired uplink and data rate of 2.5 gbps?


As mentioned in Datasheet- "With a maximum concurrent data rate of 1,733 Mbps in the 5 GHz band and 400 Mbps in the 2.4 GHz band (for an aggregate peak data rate of 2.1 Gbps), the 310 Series Access Points can quickly add required capacities to your existing or new wireless networks. The mid-range 310 Series, with its single gigabit Ethernet uplink,"


 Can anybody explain?

Re: Hoe can data rate be higher than uplink.?

The datasheet represents the maximum theoretical capabilities of the wireless link on that hardware.  Those rates would require a special client at a very short distance with no contention under ideal conditions.  Those rates can be negotiated, but few clients if any can sustain that throughput.   Lastly,  wireless is  half duplex, while wired is full duplex.
