Xirrus adds draft 11n upgrade guarantee, for a price

Wi-Fi Array maker Xirrus today announced the launch of the Xirrus 802.11n Upgrade Guarantee Program. The program provides customers with a pay-for 802.11n technology upgrade path on Arrays purchased in advance of the standard's ratification, which is expected sometime in 2008.

Xirrus said it can offer the upgrade due to the Array’s modular design. All RF components are located on modular printed circuit boards which can be replaced when 802.11n radio modules are available. An upgrade to an Array's firmware-based 802.11 MAC will also be required.
