Hardware Replacement Cost to act as a Roadblock in Market Revenue Growth

Old devices such as 802.11n wireless access point devices may or may not be able to support the new hardware standards of 802.11 AC. Henceforth, installing the 802.11 AC standard needs the whole infrastructural change to obtain the maximum benefits from new standard 802.11 AC. Installation of new hardware compatible with 802.11 AC is projected to incur high costs, which is expected to act as a restraint in the initial adoption of gigabit Wi-Fi access points.
