WHAT:   Many enterprises are considering 802.11n because of its
        significant advantages over existing wireless technologies.
        802.11n improves the performance of wireless applications that
        operate using 802.11a/b/g and enables more applications that
        currently require wired Ethernet to use a wireless LAN.  Point of
        sale transactions, voice over wireless LAN (VoWLAN), and Internet
        browsing all benefit from the increased performance, coverage, and
        robustness of 802.11n.  In addition, 802.11n enables applications,
        such as wireless backup, videoconferencing, and medical imaging,
        to operate over a wireless LAN.

        These advantages, however, present the enterprise network manager
        with important deployment considerations that have a critical
        impact on the performance of the network.  This webcast will
        address these considerations and provide a roadmap for a
        successful 802.11n implementation.

WHEN:   Monday, Sept. 22, 2008
