Earlier this month it was announced that the 802.11n "draft" standard could become finalized by as early as September. Now the Wi-Fi Alliance has announced that it will not be changing any of the baseline requirements for the 802.11n certification, allowing for backwards compatibility with the nearly 600 Wi-Fi Certified 802.11n Draft 2.0 products that have been released since June 2007. The final certification process will include testing for some optional features now included in the standard. Product testing to the new certification is expected to begin in late September.
