Abstract

In this paper, we discuss some of the upcoming standards of IEEE 802.11 i.e. Wireless Local Area Networks. The WLANs nowadays provide unlimited broadband usage to users that have been previously offered simply to wireline users within a limited range. The newest and the emerging standards fix technology issues or add functionality to the existing IEEE 802.11 standards and will be expected to overcome many of the current standing problems with IEEE 802.11.
