Wi-Fi Alliance begins work on 802.11n

Despite the uncertainty surrounding the 802.11n standard, the Wi-Fi Alliance said it will start discussing profiles for the technology, such as those specified for handsets or connected home appliances. It also wants to come to a conclusion on how to position the technology to the public, which is already getting a taste of pre-802.11n products that might not be compatible with the final version. Boasting better throughput and speed, the 802.11n standard will be the most complex standard the Wi-Fi Alliance has ever certified so it needs to move a good 12 to 18 months before the final standard is approved.
