802.11n Challenge – Speed

First, vote on the greatest deployment challenge for 802.11n in the Enterprise (if you haven’t done so already).

Let’s take a closer look at one of these challenges – speed.

There are many technical improvements in 802.11n that make it significantly faster than 802.11 a/g.   In no particular order, here are some of the improvements:

  • MIMO (Multiple In, Multiple Out) Antennas
  • Spatial Multiplexing
  • Channel Bonding
  • Short Guard Interval
  • Frame Aggregation
  • Block Acknowledgments

It is my intent to have a blog post “tutorial” on each of these improvements, so check back shortly!
