IEEE 802.11 - how It Works and Where It's Going

Adrian Stephens*

Intel Research Lab, Cambridge

IEEE 802.11 is the highly successful protocol used by most wireless local area network devices. This talk starts with a short tutorial on how the 802.11 protocol works. It then describes current 802.11 standards activities and considers the kinds of protocols and products that may result from these in the short and medium term.

* Adrian Stephens is a wireless MAC architect in Intel's corporate technology group. His focus is on developing next generation IEEE 802.11 standards. He is an active member of the 802.11 High Throughput task group (TGn) (currently chair of their functional requirements committee).
