802.11n Wi-Fi Draft Approved By IEEE

An IEEE working group endorsed draft 2.0 of the 802.11n wireless-networking standard, thus paving the way for a possible sale of products based on this spec by as early as this summer. With the approval, WLAN adapters and access points supporting the standard will need no radical upgrade to comply with the final spec, which is expected to be ratified in late 2008.

Last year, the Wi-Fi Alliance announced its plans to begin interoperability testing program for draft 2.0 equipment by June this year as well as certify and brand draft 2.0 compliant products, a reversal of a policy that only allowed testing of devices that comply with a final IEEE protocol.
