802.11ac Wi-Fi takes the lead, but wired network has to play backup

Jessica Scarpati :

"If you're taking care of your network today and making systematic upgrades, you'll be fine," says Bradley Chambers, director of IT at Brainerd Baptist School in Chattanooga, Tenn., who is testing 802.11ac APs from Aerohive Networks. "I don't think you've got to rip and replace and put in $20,000 switches if today you're not [already] putting in that nice of a switch."

I was interviewed as part of a discussion about how 802.11ac impacts your wired network. TL;DR: If you aren't buying $20,000 switches today, you don't need them for 11ac either.
