I’ve seen some new higher-speed Wi-Fi routers and adapters that tout 108Mb/s, MIMO and Pre-N standard. How do the Ruckus products compare?

802.11N is the next-generation standard for Wi-Fi. It is currently in the early stages of standard development and a draft standard is not yet available. The consensus in the industry is that the standard will be finalized by late 2006/early 2007. The point to remember is that sending video over Wi-Fi requires much more than bandwidth and network capacity. It requires reliable and predictable network characteristics. This is especially challenging with Wi-Fi. The current .11N proposals have centered on the use of MIMO technologies to increase range and performance. However, there are many modes of operation in MIMO and within each mode, many options. Some of the MIMO techniques, such as spatial multiplexing, requires changes to both the network and the client and must be standardized to ensure multi-vendor interoperability. Other techniques such as antenna diversity can be implemented on only the network or the client side and be interoperable with all standards-compliant devices in th
