Let me ask you this, Clash vocalist Joe Strummer, if I should go then how far should that be? In Cisco wireless, we have options. N, AC, Waves, Antennae, Multigig. Which way is the right way?

Well that really depends on you. Rather than boil this down to AC wave 1 versus wave 2, let’s talk more about the Cisco 2702 versus the 2802. Certainly wave 1 and wave 2 come into the argument but let’s talk specs.

9. What is Cisco Multigigabit and Why Should I Care?

The main benefit to Multigigabit is that it’s for switches that have the latest/greatest 802.11ac Wave 2 wireless APs connected to them. The term refers to a port’s ability to connect to devices (like APs) that require more than 1 gig of throughput. If you really want to get technical, the speeds supported by Cisco’s Multigigabit ports are 100 Mbps, 1 Gbps, 2.5 Gbps, and 5 Gbps on Cat5e cable, and up to 10 Gbps over Cat6a cabling.
