Draft 11n Does Not Equal 100 Mbps Ethernet

Draft 11n does not equal 100 Mbps EthernetIf you're starting to believe that draft 11n will make wired networks obsolete, you better read this before cashing in on all that scrap copper.

March IEEE 802 Wireless Meeting Highlights

IEEE 802 held a plenary meeting in Orlando, Florida the week of March 12th. Here are some highlights on the wireless front:

802.11n High Speed Wireless LAN - Overview and Latest Status

The emerging IEEE 802.11n WLAN (Wireless LAN) transmission technology based on MIMO (Multiple Inputs/Multiple Outputs) guarantees throughput of at least 100 Mbps but can deliver up to 600 Mbps depending on the complexity of the radio and on the environment. Although today's 802.11 networks can reach data rates of 54Mbps, the actual throughput is typically less than 30 Mbps due to protocol inefficiencies. 802.11n is expected to deliver true 100 Mbps throughput as measured at the MAC SAP (service access point) interface and will, therefore, more than triple the transmission speed of WLANs.
