Wi-Fi technology has been steadily improving for some years, to the extent that many workers now rely on wireless as their primary data connection to the corporate network. Wi-Fi infrastructure for manufacturing and retail organizations, hotels, universities and schools is already a $1 billion market, with annual growth in double digits. Adoption to date in enterprise offices, also known as 'carpeted space' has been slower, as many CIOs and users still regard a Wi-Fi connection as inferior to a wired Ethernet connection. 802.11n is a game changer because when properly deployed it has the potential to displace wired networks to enable a completely all-wireless workplace.
