802.11n draft proposal approved

By Derek Sooman on January 23, 2006, 12:41 PM
A working draft specification for the emerging 802.11n standard for wireless networking has been accepted by the IEEE. The unanimous vote took place during the IEEE's bi-monthly meeting in Kona, Hawaii. 802.11n represents an extension of 802.11 wireless standards, and adds multiple-input multiple-output, helping to the technology to reach a total of 600 Mbit/sec. 802.11n should wind up being almost 10 times faster than 802.11a or 802.11g. The final ratification is not due until 2007.
