Intel Reaffirms Support for TGn Sync Alliance
Company says it backs the alliance's approach to achieving 100+Mbit/sec throughput in future-generation wireless networks.In a talk about the current status of its 802.11n efforts, Intel reaffirmed its backing of the TGn Sync Alliances approach to achieving 100+Mbit/sec throughput in future-generation wireless networks. This presentation gave a high-level technical overview to several approaches under consideration as the best blend of performance and cost in the final 802.11n spec, due in 2007. Specifically, the IEEE Task Group N (TGn) is considering which carrier frequencies to use: The two currently under consideration are 20MHz and 40MHz.
The latter can deliver better performance at a lower cost since it requires fewer antennas and less-expensive radios.
