The article highlights the possible delay of the implementation of the IEEE 802.11N standard. Though the standard has been introduced in 2003, it might take another year before it is released. Despite of the benefits associated with the standard, it still has to deal with the concerns of several factions. Before the first-draft balloting was conducted, manufacturers of hardware wireless local area network, handset players, and the consumer electronics industry need to reach a compromise over their concerns. However, when the balloting results were revealed, it was found out that only 47 percent were in favor of wireless fidelity, and the rest disapproved.
