Chipmakers Present Their Own Secret 802.11n Plan

By Glenn Fleishman

A schismatic group of companies secretly working outside the IEEE 802.11n group’s process may submit a new proposal Monday: reports that Intel, Broadcom, Marvell, and Atheros have a new plan. All but Broadcom are also part of TGn Sync; Broadcom was part of the WWiSE proposal. The future of 802.11n has huge market consequences, and there’s more than a whiff of collusion when four giant semiconductor makers engage outside a standards process.

Still, by presenting their proposal, they may take potential prosecution off the table. But it’s unclear whether if their proposal isn’t accepted that they go back to the table or walk off and start a trade group as happened with 802.15.3a and UWB (ultrawideband). Intel leads the WiMedia Alliance (formerly the WiMedia Alliance and the Multi-Band OFDM Alliance).
