802.11n: Expect Delays Ahead

With 12,000 comments to review, the earliest date that the IEEE Task Group E in the 802.11 Working Group can come out with a 2.0 draft on Draft-N chips is sometime in January 2007, and not next month as many had looked forward to. The panel had already tackled half of the comments as part of the process that has been called “tedious and time-consuming.” One major question is how 802.11n should merge 20MHz channels into a sole 40MHz channel so as to double Wi-Fi signal throughput. Another issue is the inability of Draft-N products to work harmoniously together.
