The article focuses on the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2008 in Las Vegas, Nevada. During the event, the 802.11n wireless LAN standard was expected to emerge. Most of the wireless chip makers are going beyond the standards of the Institute of Electrical & Electronics Engineer (IEEE) to create a much stable signal. Most of the fine-tuning technology is being driven by the conviction that 11n will be the medium of choice for wirelessly streaming audio and video. Moreover, chip makers of the 11n system are competing to make such a network with such devices possible.
