Keywords:802.11n  Bluetooth  ISM 

At the heart of this wireless system is the 802.11n radio, which is responsible for transmitting and receiving all of the information shared between devices. To make 802.11n work, this radio must overcome specific technical challenges, linking devices such as laptops, Game Boys, TVs, PDAs, and Apple iPods together quickly and efficiently. In addition, it must avoid interference with other nearby wireless technologies, such as cellular phones, Bluetooth headsets, and other users of the unlicenced Industrial, Scientific and Medical (ISM) radio band (2.400"2.500 GHz).

This article by Darcy Poulin Ph.D. and Gord Rabjohn of SiGe Semiconductor Inc. is comprehensive discussion on 802.11n. It discusses the evolution, advantages, challenges and implementation of this standard.
