What the NBASE-T And MGBASE-T Alliances Don’t Want You To Know

Before you retire your 802.11n router, have you taken into consideration that the standard took 7 long years to finally reach completion?

The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers’ (IEEE) had to appease a group of 400 participants comprised of competing manufacturers, engineers, and academic institutions from around the world in order to finally approve the standard.

High Demand for Wi-Fi Disrupts Peaceful Ethernet Evolution

The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers’ (IEEE) lengthy Ethernet standardization process ensures that vendors make their products compatible with other brands and that their products remain backwards compatible with previous standards. But the demand for faster Wi-Fi equipment that boasts the newer 802.11 standards may disrupt the organized evolution of the 802.3 standard.
