Default Up to 600Mb/s Wireless Networks Come Closer

Twenty six wireless networking chips and equipment makers and developers Monday announced a coalition formed to accelerate the IEEE*802.11n standard development process and promote a technology specification for next-generation wireless local area networking (WLAN) products. The group hopes to speed-up ratification of the standard that may enable up to 600Mb/s transfer speed via wireless networks while maintaining compatibility with existing devices.

The Enhanced Wireless Consortium (EWC) has developed a specification that is designed to enable consumers to get wireless performance, coverage and interoperability prior to ratification of an 802.11n standard. The EWC specification defines technologies that address the PC and networking equipment market, as well as emerging handheld and consumer electronic applications. The consortium has designed its specification to support speeds of up to 600Mbps, and is considering the inclusion of other advanced technologies – including Space Time Block Coding (STBC) and beamforming – that will enable systems to deliver greater range for wireless products across multiple market segments and support advanced multimedia applications.

The EWC will make its draft product specification available for public download and will provide implementation rights to all silicon suppliers and system vendors who join the organization. Among the current members are Airoha, Apple, Atheros, Azimuth, Broadcom, Buffalo, Cisco Systems, Conexant, D-Link, Intel Corp., Lenovo, Linksys, LitePoint, Marvell, Metalink, NETGEAR, Ralink, Realtek, Sanyo, Sony, Symbol Technologies, Toshiba, USRobotics, WildPackets, Winbond and ZyDAS.

If the EWC specification is ratified by the IEEE, EWC members have agreed to make their relevant intellectual property (IP) available to all parties on reasonable and non-discriminatory (RAND) terms.

Members of the EWC will continue to work within the IEEE Task Group “N” to facilitate a ratified 802.11n standard. Its specification includes many elements of previous proposals, which will accelerate the completion of a merged proposal draft within the official IEEE timeline.
