Measured Performance of 5-GHz 802.11a Wireless LAN Systems

Wireless Local Area Networks (WLANs) have come a long way from their humble roots. What started out as a way for vertical industries to transmit data in warehouses and on the factory floor has grown into a cost-effective means for enterprises to network increasingly mobile workers for increased productivity. While growth results for this technology seem impressive, systems built to the IEEE 802.11a standard will take advantage of higher data rates for even greater performance. In this paper, Intermec's partner Atheros presents measured 5-GHz 802.11a performance data which can be used to calculate 802.11a system capacity. Here, 802.11a provides not only higher end-user speeds but also allows reductions in WLAN deployment costs.
