Buffalo releases the first 801.11ac router

801.11ac, or 5G Wi-Fi, is backwards compatible with a/b/g/n standards, and promises a significant speed boost compared to 802.11n. From Wikipedia:

Theoretically, this specification will enable multi-station WLAN throughput of at least 1 Gigabit per second and a maximum single link throughput of at least 500 megabits per second (500 Mbit/s).

186 Gigabits per second

That’s a new world record for data transfer.

The rate is equivalent to moving two million gigabytes per day, fast enough to transfer nearly 100,000 full Blu-ray disks-each with a complete movie and all the extras-in a day.
