IEEE gives 802.11n tentative approval

The IEEE working group gave its tentative approval to a draft 1.0 standard for the 802.11n specification, which uses MIMO technology. Members of the working group will now take 40 days to make comments and vote on the proposed standard. If it is approved by at least 75 percent of the members, the proposal will be submitted to the IEEE in July. Still, many chip companies aren't waiting for the final standard so they can get a head start in the market. Airgo, a big proponent of waiting for the standard, told FierceWireless that it's crucial to retain complete interoperability with existing 802.11b and 802.11g devices.
