Representatives from the TGn Synch, WWiSE, and MitMot 802.11n standards groups decided at an IEEE task group meeting in July to develop a joint proposal. The proposal's supporters plan to submit the first draft to the IEEE in September, while the final submission is scheduled for a confirmation vote in November. If the standard is ratified 802.11n WiFi gear could hit markets as soon as next year. Article
