Wi-fi set to scream in NZ

A new and faster wi-fi standard, 802.11n, is set to hit local shelves in a few weeks’ time.

James Caldwell, Netgear’s New Zealand regional manager, says the new products represent a significant jump in technology, especially when it comes to transfer speeds. The commonly used g standard has a maximum raw data rate of 54MB/sec, while the new n standard is promising speeds of up to 300MB/s.

“Most businesses have been stuck with the g standard for a while and the new n standard represents a significant jump in speed. There has been a pent-up demand for this, especially with larger businesses.”

The 802.11n standard will use multiple input multiple output (MIMO) range extension technology, creating constant near-peak throughputs which makes it more attractive to bandwidth-intensive applications such as voice over IP and online gaming.
