The article reports on the newly approved 802.11n Wi-Fi standard by the IEEE 802.11 Task Force "N". The new standard offers an exciting boost in bandwidth and range for home users who wants to use media streaming and corporations wanting to accelerate their wireless LANs. Applications includes the ability to stream multiple high bandwidth channels for HDTV, VoIP and broadband internet access. It also discusses the competitive advantage of 802.11n to other technologies such as ultrawideband and its wide range of application.
