IEEE TASK GROUP ADVANCES STANDARDS PROCESS FOR HIGHER-SPEED 802.11
LOCAL AREA NETWORKS
PISCATAWAY, N.J., __ January 2006 - The IEEE has approved a joint
to amend the IEEE 802.11T wireless local area network (WLAN) standard by
adding specifications for new technologies that will raise WLAN
speeds to as much as 600 Mbps (megabits per second).
The task group working on this amendment, IEEE 802.11nT,
LAN Medium Access Control (MAC) and Physical Layer (PHY) Specifications:
Enhancements for Higher Throughput", voted unanimously to confirm the
proposal. The project to develop IEEE 802.11n began in 2003 to ensure
interoperability of the next generation of WLAN devices. A draft of the
amendment is expected in late 2006, with publication slated for 2007.
"The IEEE 802.11 Wireless LAN working group continues to improve this
standard to meet the evolving needs of the public and industry," said
J. Kerry, Chair of the IEEE 802.11 Working Group on Wireless Local Area
Networks. "Hundreds of technical experts from the world's leading
technology companies, academic institutions and government agencies have
collaborated to develop the foundation for new high-throughput wireless
