Mtg: Wireless Standards: A History and Perspective / CNSV Annual Meeting

by @ 8:54 am. Filed under ALL, Communications, Computers/Software, Electronics Design, Engineering Mgmt, Semiconductors
 

TUESDAY December 11
SCV Consultants’ Network of Silicon Valley
Speaker: Bruce Himebauch, Atheros Communications
Time: 7:00 PM
Cost: none
Place: Silicon Valley Technical Institute, 1762 Technology Dr., Suite 227, San Jose
RSVP: not required
Web: www.CaliforniaConsultants.org

Most commercial wireless networking products conform to the 802.11b, 802.11a, 802.11g and 802.11n standards, collectively known as Wireless Fidelity (Wi-Fi). Wi-Fi has been accepted in businesses, schools, government and homes as an alternative to wired LANs. The 802,11 standards have similarities to the 802.3 Ethernet standard, but they must also deal with range limitations, unreliable media and dynamic topologies.

Bruce Himebauch will present a history of the 802.11 standards family, the 802.11n Task Group N (TGn) and the issues surrounding implementation of 802.11 products. He will also describe the driving forces behind the creation of each new standard, including regulations, bandwidth issues, popularity and cost.

 

Note that this event takes place on the 2nd (not the 3rd) Tuesday of the month. Note also the change of venue for this meeting only. The talk will be preceded by the CNSV Annual Meeting and election of 2008 officers.
