About this talk

Ratification of the next generation IEEE wireless standard, 802.11n, is just around the corner. 802.11n brings data rates of several hundred megabits per second, which many analysts say is instrumental in WiFi replacing Ethernet switching to the desktop. But is wireless really a capable replacement? Our speaker, Mr. Douglas Haider, will explore the performance, security, scalability, and reliability of next generation wireless LANs. Mr. Haider will address both the technical and business requirements of the audience. The presentation is built around a case study and is packed with specific recommendations, suggested tools, and information on where to find additional resources.
