"Plan to stay with Wi-Fi certified products under the 802.11a/b/g banner. Expect these technology investments to be good for at least four more years," a group of three Gartner analysts recommended, adding that 802.11n should not be considered until 2007.
The forthcoming 802.11n Wi-Fi standard will be compatible with existing 802.11a/b/g standards. It aims to increase the speed of Wi-Fi networks, boosting transmission rates from the current 54Mbps to 600Mbps and increasing the technology's range.
The analyst firm believes that the technology is likely to be changed before a final standard is approved, and that additional testing will be required to ensure compatibility with existing Wi-Fi standards.
Altogether it will take another year before the 802.11n standard is ready, Gartner predicted.
