802.11n Debate on Middle Ground

“According to one source, the TGN Sync proposal garnered just under 50 percent of the vote, far short of the 75 percent “supermajority”.

The standards battle was supposedly resolved in March, when TGN Sync was approved by a bare majority. The 802.11n standard, if agreed upon, stands to replace the current alphabet soup of 802.11 wireless standards, which transmit data at up to 54 Mbits/s. The basic 802.11n requirements call for a base throughput of 100 Mbits/s, although the TGn Sync consortium have talked about using the technology to achieve rates of higher than 315 Mbits/s. Both technologies use arrays of antennas, known as MIMO (Multiple In, Multiple Out) to achieve their goals.”
