I'm looking at setting up a network with full WiFi coverage.
Right now I'm still comparing access points to mesh.
I see the options for AC access points offer wireless bandwidth in excess of 1Gbps. Like AC1200.
What I don't understand is how this is possible given the Ethernet backhaul is running at max 1000 Mbps.
I get that the total bandwidth is shared among all devices connected to that access point, and also between the 2.4 & 5 GHz bands.
Still, given that the AP can only send & receive data at the gigabit speed of the backhaul, the total bandwidth available to all clients must be limited to a gigabit?
Is there something I'm missing?
Because it seems pointless to get faster than 1000Mbps AC access points.
