802.11n Standard Passed


The IEEE on Thursday approved the first draft of a proposal for the 802.11n wireless standard at a meeting in Hawaii. Last week, the group set aside the last of their differences, adopting a proposal put forth by the Enhanced Wireless Consortium, a interest group headed by Atheros, Broadcom and Intel.

For those of you who don’t know, N is the next evolution of Wi-Fi technologies, Following up on B (11 mbps) and G (54 mbps). N should have better range and much better throughput.

That’s all great, since they really took forever on this. However, do you want to know the word I zeroed in on right away when I read that paragraph? That’s right, Hawaii.

I have a new goal in life. I want to be in a position where I can say “Hey, let’s all go to Hawaii to decide this thing!”
