Title: WD My Net AC1300 HD Dual-Band Router Single-Client 802.11ac WLAN Rate/Range Performance Comparison

Publication date:   27 November 2012
Document number:    212149

Abstract:

The increase in wireless handheld devices in households, combined with ever-increasing use of video streaming and gaming, continues to consume all of the bandwidth available in traditional 802.11a/b/g/n networks. The new 802.11ac wireless LAN (WLAN) standard can offer dramatic increases in available bandwidth.

WD, a Western Digital company, commissioned Tolly to validate the performance of its My Net AC1300 Router and compare that to comparable routers from six other vendors.

Since current generation laptops do not yet run 802.11ac, media bridges from Western Digital and one other vendor were used to provide the Ethernet-to-WLAN connections for the test clients.

The WD solution delivered consistent, “spike-free”, throughput and the highest average throughput of solutions tested from 30-75 ranges and over 345 Mbps at 75 feet.
