"The Promise and Pitfalls of 802.11n"

Explore the promise and pitfalls of next generation wireless LANs.

802.11n sounds like a panacea - delivering wireless data networking rates that are four to six times faster than earlier 802.11a/g networks and also improving transmission range. But with any new technology, opportunity is accompanied by a few new challenges.

This white paper discusses the pitfalls that might arise such as increased power output, multipath signal propagation and "smart" antenna designs which affect range and performance. Existing wired LANs may not support aggregate 802.11n traffic volumes and 802.11n's extended coverage range and new frame format may introduce new security issues. Learn how to address these challenges with new strategies for AP placement, RF management, security, optimization and troubleshooting of 802.11n WLANs.
