The Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE) 802 LAN/MAN Standards Committee (LMSC) today celebrates its 30th anniversary...
The IEEE Standards Board has ratified 802.11n, defining mechanisms for improved data rates and ranges for wireless local area networks (WLANs).
In mid-September, the IEEE will close the final chapter on a standards ratification process that will have lasted almost exactly seven years.
In the current world of wireless data networks, most of the industry’s focus is on delivered bandwidth, and usually bigger is definitely better. But there is also growing interest in using wireless technologies for short-range applications.
