802.11n finally official


At last, the long suffering 802.11n draft standard has been made official, and is released from its draft prison with the IEEE finally ratified the latest longer range, higher speed version of the wireless standard. This move took a good seven years since the process kicked off, and a couple of years after the final draft was approved with a slew of hardware companies following suit by releasing 802.11n gear to the market. Makes us wonder what took them so long to review and approve this standard to move it up from draft. Well, all said and done, we would like to give the old proverb a handshake as it tells us “better late than never!”
