Welcome to this Cisco Support Community Ask the Expert conversation. This is an opportunity to learn and ask questions about configuring and client interoperability of wireless 802.11ac with Richard Hamby and Yilin Weng.

The ever-growing demand for faster wireless connectivity brings us to the 802.11ac standard. Cisco’s new portfolio of 802.11ac-capable access points delivers new features to the enterprise. The current range of unified and converged wireless controllers supports 802.11ac and uses the overall Cisco strategy to deliver performance and management to your network. 

For this discussion, Richard Hamby and Yilin Weng will help to demystify some of the concepts and deployment considerations required to make your 802.11ac environment the best it can be. They will also answer your questions related to specifics of the 11ac standard, client interop, configuration, troubleshooting, and deployment considerations for your wireless network.
