Nick is correct. The testing is not even defined so there won't be certified products until there is. It seems many share Nick's sentiment in our customer community. As exciting as it is to be on the vanguard of these developments as we are, even we have to temper our excitement with the reality that the best thing for our customers is a quality experience and that includes interoperability certification and the confidence that gives you.

The important thing is to start planning your network for gigabit future down the line - what does you switching infrastructure and power budget look? Bottlenecks in the network? In the next 12 - 18 months as clients come out how will you phase in .11ac?

Just food for thought.
