How to Cable 802.11n Wireless Access Points
The 802.11n standard is an important advance in wireless Local Area Networks (LANs). In 2007, residential consumers began installing 802.11n products and in 2008 enterprises will begin adopting en masse. Since 802.11n provides bit rates many times faster than legacy 802.11 technology, the "wired side" of a wireless LAN will face new and stringent demands. This paper discusses the impact 802.11n will have on cabling as well as what installers and enterprises should do to address them.
