WLAN 802.11ac Data Rates
This page of WLAN 802.11ac tutorial covers WLAN 802.11ac data rates.
Following table describes 802.11ac data rates for 20MHz,40MHz,80MHz and 160 MHz bandwidths for various modulation-coding schemes. All the data rates mentioned are with short Guard Interval. MCS 9 is not allowed for 20MHz BW. Also MCS9 is not supported for 6 SS in 80 MHZ BW and for 3 SS in 160 MHz BW. Values mentioned in 20 MHz is for 1 stream, and for 8 stream for 40,80 and 160 MHz. Channel width multiplication factors are 1 for 20MHz BW, 2.1 for 40MHz,4.5 for 80 MHz and 9 for 160 MHz. Values mentioned in 40MHz,80MHz and 160MHz are for 8 Spatial Stream(SS), to obtain for 1 stream one can divide by 8.
|MCS Type||20 MHz(1 SS)||40MHz(8 SS)||80MHz(8 SS)||160MHz(8 SS)|
|MCS 0||7.2 Mbps||120 Mbps||260 Mbps||520 Mbps|
