IEEE, the world's largest standard-setting organization, has announced the creation of an IEEE 802.11 study group to define the scope of a future IEEE 802.111 amendment with the aim of enhancing the efficiency and performance of wireless local area network (WLAN) deployments.

The new IEEE 802.11 high efficiency WLAN (HEW) study group will consider use cases, including dense network environments with large numbers of access points and stations. More than 300 individuals from equipment and silicon suppliers, service providers, carriers, systems integrators, consultant organizations and academic institutions from more than 20 countries have expressed interest in participating in the work to define the scope for a future HEW project. The IEEE 802.11 HEW Study Group meets during IEEE 802.11 Wireless LAN working group meetings.

IEEE 802.11 WiFi standards underpin wireless networking applications around the world, such as wireless access to the Internet from offices, homes, airports, hotels, restaurants, trains and aircraft. IEEE 802.11’s relevance continues to expand with the emergence of new applications, such as the smart grid, wireless docking and the “Internet of Things”.
