To design and deploy a wireless network that will be used by the majority of Intel employees and that operates as effectively as a wired LAN at a reasonable cost, Intel IT investigated moving to the 802.11n wireless protocol. Intel launched a six-month investigation that included laboratory testing, a small proof of concept covering several stories of a building, and, finally, a large-scale pilot certification that involved 1,000 employees in a five-story building. Based on the success of this investigation, Intel has decided to deploy 802.11n-based wireless LANs (WLANs) across Intel.
