Submission Slide 1 Brian F ord, Be March 200 5 doc.: IEEE 802.11-05/0109r3 Abstract This presentation expands and provides details on presentation 11-051644-01-000n regarding Service Provider concerns over weaknesses/gaps within 802.11 that have negative market impact. The presentations primary focus is 802.11n as it enables a true wireless triple play of voice, data and video delivery. If 802.11n does not address the issues listed, there will be a negative impact on Service

Providers supplying the network link in high throughput applications. Resolving the weaknesses should be considered a major component of achieving Broad Market Potential and a truly market-enabling standard. Not resolving the issues will lead to proprietary solutions being promoted into the market, the opposite goal of a standards effort.
