In this paper, the authors give an overview of the IEEE 802.11ac which has been proposed to enhance the throughput of IEEE 802.11n beyond gigabit-per second rates. 802.11ac adds multi-user access techniques in the form of DownLink Multi-User (DL MU) Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) and 80 and 160MHz channels in the 5GHz band for applications such as multiple simultaneous video streams throughout the home. For this the IEEE 802.11ac task group is working on the amendment that has goal of reaching maximum network throughput of at least 1GBps on bands below 6GHz & continuing to support the legacy of 5GHz 802.11 devices.
