PISCATAWAY, N.J., __ January 2006 - The task group responsible for
developing the IEEE 802.11n project has voted to accept, as a baseline, a
joint proposal to amend the IEEE 802.11T wireless local area network (WLAN)
standard by adding specifications for new technologies that will raise WLAN
connection speeds to as much as 600 Mbps (megabits per second). 
	The task group working on this amendment, IEEE 802.11nT, "Wireless
LAN Medium Access Control (MAC) and Physical Layer (PHY) Specifications:
Enhancements for Higher Throughput", voted unanimously (184/0/4) to confirm
the joint proposal as a baseline. The project to develop IEEE 802.11n began
in 2003 to ensure the 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 WLAN
standard to meet the evolving needs of the public and industry," said Stuart
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 LAN
	Bruce Kraemer, Chair of the IEEE 802.11n High Throughput Task Group,
adds that "reaching this step is a significant milestone.  It demonstrates
the success of the IEEE consensus process in bringing together the diverse
interests of enterprises and consumers.  The technology to be incorporated
into IEEE 802.11n will provide new capabilities to diverse industry sectors
ranging from computer and consumer electronics to public access and mobile
