The 802.11 protocol, or simply Wi-Fi as most users know it, is constantly under development. Users of 802.11 usually only notice the major changes, typically those that increase overall Wi-Fi performance, like 802.11a or 802.11n. But for every "public" change there are many background changes, some of which have pretty significant impacts, especially for device manufacturers, OEMs, and network engineers who must understand the nuances and the interactions of change to the protocol. With over twenty 802.11 specifications already ratified, and many more still in the development phase, it makes sense to occasionally "roll up" the changes into a single 802.11 specification. This is exactly what 802.11-2012 is all about.
802.11-2012 incorporates ten recently ratified 802.11 amendments into an overall 802.11 spec, making it much easier for engineers who are working with 802.11, especially those that may be new to Wi-Fi. Also, since many of the amendments include functional overlap, consolidation helps make potential design issues more obvious. Join us as we dissect the ten 802.11 specifications recently rolled into the 802.11-2012 specification update, focusing on their general applicability as well as their impact on other 802.11 specifications and features.
In this web seminar, we will cover:
- What’s in 802.11-2012
- Overall descriptions of each amendment
- Potential applications for each amendment
- Functional overlap, inconsistencies, or conflicts
What you will learn:
- How 802.11-2012 influences the overall WLAN market
- Which amendments are actively being implemented
- How WLAN analysis is impacted by these amendments
