IEEE 802.11n wireless LAN draft specification approved

The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers yesterday ratified the draft specification for the next generation 802.11n high-speed wireless networking standard. The ratified IEEE 802.11n draft specification was proposed by the Enhanced Wireless Consortium, which counts both Intel and Apple amongst its members.

Hopefully this means we will see Macs with 100 Mbps wireless LAN support relatively soon. The final official 802.11n standard is expected to be ratified within the year, but products based on the 802.11n draft standard have already been announced.
