11n Links ‘Will Hog WiFi Airspace’

Airspace, by its very definition, seems boundless, but apparently it’s not. Next-generation 802.11n WiFi links, in order to achieve top data rates, would be forced to hog already congested bandwidth channels or to “bond” two channels into one, a practice that is already illegal in Japan. Systems using the new standard would be faster even without bonding, but the predicted top rates of up to 600Mbits/sec would depend on it. In addition to increased speed, the new spec will improve both WiFi security and the standard of VoIP calls.
