Quanta ships 2.2
million notebooks in April. Blu-Ray/HD-DVD demand will rely
on game/consumer applications. D-Link
releases 2.0 upgrades for draft 802.11n products.
The 2.0 draft of the 802.11n wireless specification brings the industry
closer to final ratification, providing the next set of technical requirements
for enhancing existing draft 11n products. The technical changes occurring between
the Draft 1.0 and 2.0 deal primarily with the protection of the legacy devices,
including the requirement for Clear Channel Assessment (CCA), which D-Link was
already offering in 1.0 products when the protection mechanisms were still optional,
stated D-Link. D-Link said its commitment to providing the best performance
and protection in the industry for both new draft 11n and legacy 802.11b/g products
has enabled the company to be first to market with the 2.0 upgrades.
