Upgrade to 802.11ac wave2

Hi All,

 

        We are about to upgrade to 802.11ac wave 2, but we need to know if this is the right move now. My question is:

 

1- Do smartphones /Tablet support 802.11ac wave2 MU-MIMO now?

2- If not, what good it would do if the devices dont suopport it yet?

 

        Do you guys suggest to wait ot go ahead and do it as we need to upgrade the controller code to support the Aruba AP325.

 

Thanks,

 

Sam

Please see the post here:  http://community.arubanetworks.com/t5/Airheads-Breakouts/802-11ac-Wave-2-Technology-Deep-Dive-and-Deployment/ta-p/246152 to get all of your questions answered.

 

There are a few smartphone wave 2 devices out there, yes, but they are certainly not mainstream.
