A new age of handheld mobile devices and multimedia applications is driving the need for a new Wi-Fi infrastructure. This emerging demand for mobile multimedia represents a whole new scale for consumption of wireless resources and capacity. The enormity of this issue led a number of cross-industry networking professionals to form a working group dedicated to defining documenting, and making recommendations to address the requirements for building and operating a "Multimedia Grade" Wi-Fi infrastructure, whether in Greenfield environments or building on an existing network deployment. This paper represents the collective experience of the working group for the first 60 days as they explore what it means to become Multimedia Grade by scaling their own environments and sharing those experiences.
