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!
