The Network Impact of 802.11n
802.11n is delivering on promises to bring revolutionary advances in throughput and capacity to the wireless LAN. For the first time in the history of the development of IEEE 802.11 networks, wireless LAN speeds are comparable to commonly used wired technologies. Now that wireless LAN users have access to speeds well in excess of 100 Mbps, wireless LANs can no longer be treated as an afterthought.
But before successfully migrating to 802.11n, there are several questions that must be considered. Access this white paper now to find out the answers to crucial questions such as:
- How do 802.11n APs connect to the existing core network?
- How are 802.11n APs powered?
- What changes are required to the network backbone to support the higher speeds of 802.11n?
