This article reports on the proposal launched by the Enhanced Wireless Consortium (EWC) for a wireless high-speed IEEE 802.11 network standard, as of November 2005. The proposal will allow companies to start creating EWC-compliant Wi-Fi chipsets and products immediately. They will be interoperable with existing Wi-Fi products but will offer faster throughput and extended range when used with other EWC products. The new proposal is said to deliver audio, video and data at speeds up to 600 megabytes per second.
