-Beamforming is a performance feature included in Wi-Fi protocols starting with 802.11n.  Beamforming radiates signals more directly towards the receiver, instead of in an omnidirectional pattern, like older equipment. This can result in a higher signal-to-noise ratio and data rates between the two devices exchanging data.+Beamforming is a performance feature included in Wi-Fi protocols starting with 802.11n.  Beamforming radiates signals more directly towards the receiver, instead of in an omnidirectional pattern, like older equipment.

 Traditionally, most Wi-Fi routers and access points included omnidirectional antennas. These radiate radio energy equally in all directions. This is not the most effective/efficient way to exchange radio signals to another device. Much of the signal goes off in directions away from the or other wireless device. Traditionally, most Wi-Fi routers and access points included omnidirectional antennas.
