Draft N Finally Standardised

September 14, 2009

Many of us have already been using “Draft N” routers to network our “Draft N” wireless devices for years, but it seems that this week we get to drop the “draft” and just use “Wireless N” as the whole thing gets approved officially.

While it’s been a long time coming, it’s nice to see that 802.11n is finally a real wireless standard, rather than the strange hovering-in-limbo act it’s been pulling for the last few years. According to RealTechNews, the whole business only took seven years, which makes us feel older than we really are, given that it’s easy to remember a time when 802.11n seemed like a bit of a pipe dream.
