Free registration required

Executive Summary

IEEE 802.11n is a next generation wireless technology that delivers spectacular improvements in the reliability, speed, and range of 802.11 communications. Delivering about 6 times the data rate and 2-5 times the throughput of 802.11a/g with substantial improvements in network coverage and connection quality, 802.11n is expected to replace wired Ethernet as the dominant local area network technology of the future. This paper examines the operation of current generation wireless LANs, explains key 802.11n technology components along with their benefits, and explores 802.11n's potential for delivering a totally wireless enterprise.
