802.11n throughput?

babixgbabixg Member Posts: 40 ■■□□□□□□□□

I have been watching trainsignal videos, and it says that 802.11n has max data rates upto 100Mbps.

When I look at MCMCSE guide it states 540Mbps. I found a 802.11n white paper from Broadcom that says it's 600Mbps max. Wikipedia seems to say it's 600Mbps too.

Can someone tell me what is the max throughput of 802.11n network? I'm confused.

Thank you so much.

    Its claimed to have a MAX throughput of 600Mbps but if you ever hook up a wireless N router you will only get 100Mbps. I think its 600 Mbps if you have ALL of the equipment that can handle up to 600 Mbps. But for the Net+, its 100Mbps.

    Right now, the IEEE's official standpoint on the throughput of 802.11n is at least 100Mb/s.
    Abstract: This amendment defines modifications to both the IEEE 802.11 physical layer (PHY) and
    the IEEE 802.11 medium access control (MAC) sublayer so that modes of operation can be enabled
    that are capable of much higher throughputs, with a maximum throughput of at least 100 Mb/s, as
    measured at the MAC data service access point (SAP)

    It also states it as up to 600MB/s on page 247 and 300+ in some cases on page 288. As far as Network+ goes answer the one that it is looking for.

    Thanks everyone!!

    I think I found out how now...

    It's 100Mbps but can reach 600Mbps with the help of MIMO (multiple in and multiple out).

    Thanks for informing that for N+ it's 100Mbps... that should help me study with the exam. =D

    Theres a lot of bad juju out there

    But keep in mind that the BEST you can do. Probably will never get 600Mbps

    Its probably a bits/bytes thing. A lot of N routers advertise that they can do 300 megabits per second, which comes down a rate of about 60 megabytes per second, hence the throughput mentioned.
