There is no wireless LAN topic more interesting today — or more important — than 802.11n, the high-speed wireless networking standard that is still under development. Its release has been slow in coming, so much so that the Wi-Fi Alliance has issued a specification based on Draft 2.0 of the proposed standard. Since then, many WLAN vendors have announced a broad array of compliant products aimed at enterprise applications, and more are to follow later in the year.

In this webcast, Craig Mathias of the Farpoint Group will share with you the latest information about the technology, the applications which will benefit most from it, what?s driving the market, and what you must know in order to make the right choices as you plan the next stage of your wireless LAN. You?ll learn why 802.11n is perhaps the most important development in wireless networking since its inception over 20 years ago.

Craig will cover the following key points:

  • What is 802.11n?
  • What is MIMO/OFDM, and why is it so important?
  • Key features of 802.11n
  • 802.11n usage models and market dynamics
  • Impact of 802.11n on the wired network
  • Looking beyond — to gigabit wireless LANs
  • Advice for enterprise network managers

Following the formal presentation, there will be a question and answer session. Those of you who have attended our seminars in the past know how lively and far-ranging this session can be.
