Helping Define 802.11n and other Wireless LAN StandardsIEEE 802.11 wireless local area networksIntel is working with standards leaders on ratifying 802.11n, a new faster version of the 802.11 standard. Ratification is expected in December 2009 and publication in early 2010. Products are already on the market adhering to the Wi-Fi Alliance’s* 802.11n draft 2.0 certification, demonstrating the wellspring of support for this upcoming standard.Did You Know? The term "Wi-Fi" was the invention of what is now called the Wi-Fi Alliance (WFA—formerly known as the Wireless Ethernet Compatibility Alliance). The WFA decided the term "IEEE 802.11b-compliant" was too long and hard for consumers looking for certified products to remember. "Wi-Fi" meant nothing at the time, but sounded like "hi-fi," a familiar term to consumers. Later on, the meaning "wireless fidelity" was attached to "Wi-Fi.02.11 is a group of specifications developed by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Inc. (IEEE) for wireless local area networks (WLANs). These specifications define an over-the-air interface between a wireless client and a base station (or access point), or between two or more wireless clients. Known more popularly as Wi-Fi*, 802.11 has taken the world by storm. According to data released by the Wi-Fi Alliance and In-Stat, Wi-Fi chipset sales were estimated at 300 million units for 2007. This milestone represents a 41 percent growth rate from 2006, in which 213 million chipsets were shipped. In-Stat predicts that by 2011 approximately 700 million devices will ship with Wi-Fi on board. Nearly 50 percent of the chipsets sold in 2008 are predicted to adhere to the 802.11n draft standard. ABI research forecasts that by 2013 more than 90 percent of Wi-Fi products will support 802.11n.Read the full Helping Define 802.11n and Other Wireless LAN Standards.
