The article focuses on the 802.11n Wi-Fi standard which hits Wi-Fi's performance by as much as ten times and increases its range by three times more than the previous versions. It discusses the Yankee Group's expectation that the percentage of workers using wireless local area networks (WLANs) will increase in the next three years from 10% in late 2009 to more than 25% of enterprise employees by 2012. The enterprise Wi-Fi vendors' drive to keep Wi-Fi interference to a minimum is also discussed.
