The 802.11ac WiFi standard is being rolled out in two phases, known as Wave 1 and Wave 2. Wave 1 devices are now being introduced by multiple vendors and offer the promise of up to 1.3 Gigabits per second of wireless connectivity. The future Wave 2 rollout of 802.11ac has the potential to scale WLANs up to 6 Gigabits per second.

The new Aruba 220 series APs are purpose-built for Wave 1 802.11ac. Unlike Cisco, Aruba does not have a modular AP that enables new WiFi modules to be plugged into existing APs.
