Hi Team, AP305C & 410C datasheet they mention the below Details:

Under the 802.11ac - MIMO & under the 802.11ax - DL - SU-MIMO and MU-MIMO. refer the below screenshot highlighted.

 

 

 

So those AP’s are support MU-MIMO in 802.11ac or Not?

Hi Saravana,

 

If I’m not wrong, for 11ac TxBF should be treated as a synonym for MU-MIMO.

 

Hope that helps,

Hello Tomasz,

If I’m not wrong, for 11ac TxBF should be treated as a synonym for MU-MIMO.

 

You are right TxBF (= Transmit Beamforming) is often mentioned in togehter with  MU-MIMO. In fact, TxBF is the prerequisite for MU-MIMO. However, it is also possible to use TxBF with SU-MIMO.
Thus, you cannot rely 100% on the fact that a device that supports TxBF also supports MU-MIMO.
