This paper describes a new standardization effort - IEEE 802.11n, and its comparison with legacy standard. In this paper, the authors present the results of a measurement campaign evaluating the performance of both standards IEEE802.11g/n. They concentrate their evaluation on wireless communication in the outdoor scenario. They found that distance, throughput and signal/noise ratio characterize the basic performance of standards. The IEEE802.11 technology with -a,-b,-g extensions are highly popular and widely available at low-cost for free commercial hotspots and home networking.
