Standards

The following IEEE Standards and task groups exist within the IEEE 802.11 working group[2]: • IEEE 802.11 - The original 1 Mbit/s and 2 Mbit/s, 2.4 GHz RF and IR standard (1999) • IEEE 802.11a - 54 Mbit/s, 5 GHz standard (1999, shipping products in 2001) • IEEE 802.11b - Enhancements to 802.11 to support 5.5 and 11 Mbit/s (1999) • IEEE 802.11c - Bridge operation procedures; included in the IEEE 802.1D standard (2001) • IEEE 802.11d - International (country-to-country) roaming extensions (2001) • IEEE 802.11e - Enhancements: QoS, including packet bursting (2005) • IEEE 802.11F - Inter-Access Point Protocol (2003) Withdrawn February 2006 • IEEE 802.11g - 54 Mbit/s, 2.4 GHz standard (backwards compatible with b) (2003) • IEEE 802.11h - Spectrum Managed 802.11a (5 GHz) for European compatibility (2004) • IEEE 802.11i - Enhanced security (2004)
