Wireless "N" Now Official

IEEE Ratifies 802.11n, Wireless LAN Specification to Provide Significantly Improved Data Throughput and Range.

The IEEE today announced that its Standards Board has ratified
the IEEE
802.11n™-2009 amendment, defining mechanisms that
provide significantly improved
data rates and ranges for wireless local area networks (WLANs). This new
amendment to the IEEE 802.11 base standard is designed to help the data communications industry
address the escalating demands placed on enterprise,
home and public WLANs with the rise of higher-
bandwidth file transfers and
next-generation multimedia applications. WLANs based on IEEE 802.11 are
widely
deployed, with more than 1 million units shipping per day.

More than 400 individuals from equipment and silicon suppliers, service providers, systems integrators,
consultant organizations and academic
institutions from more than 20 countries participated in a seven-year
effort
leading to IEEE 802.11n`s ratification. Publication of the amendment is scheduled for mid-October.
