The adoption of Intersil's OFDM-based proposal for the IEEE 802.11g Draft Standard is a significant milestone in the continuing development of standards-based WLAN technology. Adoption of the proposal by IEEE 802.11 Task Group G accomplishes two major objectives:

  1. OFDM will be deployed at 2.4 GHz as a mandatory part of the 802.11g Standard, and it will support data rates up to 54 Mbps
  2. Backward compatibility with existing Wi-Fi (802.11b) systems is guaranteed.

The Intersil proposal requires use of Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) for higher data rates (>20 Mbps) and requires support for Complimentary Code Keying (CCK) to ensure backward compatibility with existing 802.11b radios as mandatory elements of the 802.11g Draft Standard.

For more information on 802.11g, visit Intersil's Web site.
