Broadcom's senior vice president for Home and Wireless Networking business unit Michael Hurlston predicts that 802.11ac will become the mainstream WLAN technology standard as early as the second quarter of 2013 or as late as the first quarter of 2014.
"While it took nearly three years for 802.11n to become the mainstream WLAN standard, 802.11ac is expected to take the mainstream status in only one and half years after related applications enter the market because of the already mature environment for applications and the standard's technological advantage", Hurlston indicated.
"Broadcom has partnered with 14 enterprises for its 5G Wi-Fi chip solutions, including Microsoft, LG Electronics, Motorola, Best Buy, Comcast, Buffalo, Belkin, Netgear, China-based Lenovo and Taiwan-based Asustek Computer and D-Link", Hurlston said.
