In one of the major news that came out of the IEEE Globecom 2006 Expo is that Intel has finally made a jump to the 802.11n bandwagon. The Director and the GM of Intel, Alan Crouch said that this new technology which is yet to be standardized will be incorporated in future Intel Centrino. Intel will start producing 802.11n Centrino chips form next year. With this incorporation the speed will scale to around theoretical 600mbps though the actual speed will be 400mbps, a range which is 50% greater than speeds which the Wi-Fi now provides. Still it will be a path breaking achievement. The final ratification and standardization is slated for 2008 and now that Intel has also put its weight behind this new emerging technology it will become difficult IEEE LAN/MAN Standards Committee to jeopardize the whole process The Wi-Fi has seen two major upgrades till now and that are 802.11b which had the speed of 11mbps and 802.11g which provided speeds of 54mbps. Intel is not the first company to do this Dell, Linksys, Belkin and D-link are already providing this new Wi-Fi.
