This paper analyses the results from an experimental study on the performance of the heterogeneous wireless networks based on IEEE 802.11a, 802.11n and 802.11ac standards in an indoor environment considering the key features of PHY layers mainly, Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO), Multi-User Multiple Input Multiple Output (MU-MIMO), Channel Bonding and Short-Guard Interval (SGI). The experiment is conducted for the IEEE 802.11ac standard along with the legacy protocols 802.11a/n in a heterogeneous environment. It calculates the maximum throughput of IEEE 802.11 standard amendments, compares the theoretical and experimental throughput over TCP and UDP and their efficiency. To achieve this desired goal, different tests are proposed. The result of these tests will determine the capability of each protocol and their efficiency in a heterogeneous environment.
