Leading Wi-Fi chip manufacturers will be announcing a new industry forum on Monday to help accelerate efforts to create a new, faster Wi-Fi standard, says a source close to the companies. Intel, Broadcom, Marvel and Atheros have sidestepped the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers’ process to work on a draft of the new 802.11n standard, which the vendors plan to submit to the IEEE’s working group for consideration, sources say.
