802.11n Is Now An Official Wi-Fi Standard (It Only Took 7 Years!)


By Chris Scott Barr

We’ve heard about 802.11n wireless devices for a while now. In fact, 802.11 was first introduced over 7 years ago. There have been devices released in the years since (remember pre-N stuff?), and the Draft-N was finalized back in 2007. Well, it seems that IEEE has finally ratified the standard. Seriously, it took 7 years to get this done. There were almost no changes to the standard from the draft made back in ’07. Seriously, if they already knew that the Draft-N was going to work with the final standard, why did it take this long to finish things?
