802.11n rush underway

18 апреля 2006
There was the Gold Rush, and now there is the 802.11n rush. Marvell has partnered with Netgear to bring out a chip set complying with the draft 802.11n standard. Until now, WiFi chip set leaders Airgo Networks and Broadcom have brought out MIMO-enhanced WiFi chip sets, but without an 802.11n draft standard, both have been obliged to market the chips as being compliant with 802.11a, b and g. Now, with the draft standard having been published in March, Marvell has jumped into the market with a product designated as compliant with the draft 802.11n standard. The chip set is being used by wireless router manufacturers Netgear and D-Link in routers which claim to manage a 300 Mbps throughput. This surely is a theoretical figure, with actual throughput likely near 200 Mbps. The products range in price from $129 to $249 and will be offered both in stores and online.

Netgear is currently rolling out to stores its RangeMax Next Gigabit Edition Networking kit which includes a wireless router with 10/100/1000 switch and wireless notebook adapter, among other products. The kit, which is based on Marvell's 802.11n draft-compliant chip sets, has already passed FCC approval and retails for approximately $349.
