802.11r and 802.11s - Fast Roaming and Mesh Standards

Already in July, the IEEE has approved to work on two projects for fast roaming and mesh applications in Wi-Fi networks. The fast roaming project, IEEE P802.11r, will make it easier to use wireless VoIP and other real-time interactive applications. The standard will seek to foster the use of mobile, wireless VoIP phones and other time-sensitive WLAN applications by eliminating perceptible disconnections. The mesh project, IEEE P802.11s, will extend WLAN range by allowing data to pass through wireless nodes bringing coverage beyond the typical WLAN connectivity limit of 300 ft. from an access.

In a mesh, a single access point can serve a large facility or broad sensor array. „The IEEE 802.11 Working Group is committed to creating standards for all aspects of wireless LAN operation worldwide,“ said Stuart J. Kerry, Chairman of the IEEE P802.11 standards committee. „Task Groups r and s reflect this commitment. The standards they will develop should help open a variety of new WLAN applications and continue to promote the rapid growth of IEEE 802.11-based wireless systems.“

Over the year the IEEE has made good progress to push standardization of the IEEE 802.11 family. Most importantly, the 802.11i standard was ratified, paving way for WPA that brings higher security to Wi-Fi networks. This is an important step for a higher Wi-Fi penetration in corporate networks, as security remains the biggest obstacle for companies to deploy wireless LAN networks. IEEE 802.11 standards form a family of specifications that define how WLAN equipment should be produced so equipment from different manufacturers can work together. As the market is maturing there is no doubt that additional IEEE 802.11 standards are needed in order to bring further growth into the industry and allow wireless LAN to conquer new markets, such as consumer electronics.
