802.11N Becomes Official In September

Via -

Last Friday, Bob Heile, the chairman of the IEEE 802.15 working group on Personal Area Networks, noted that the 802.11N Wi-Fi standard has finally been sent on to the Standards Review Committee. That means, assuming no further hiccups, that the standard will become finalized by September. The ratification process stems back nearly five years, slowed by a factionalized debate over competing technologies. A draft version of 802.11n was approved in January 2006, and the first wave of 802.11N hardware hit the market -- with all subsequent evolutions (supposedly) applied by firmware update.
