Broadcom: 802.11n unlikely to replace 802.11g

Broadcom has revised its outlook for 802.11n chips, envisioning that 802.11n is unlikely to replace 802.11g as the mainstream technology standard for the WLAN market, according to Michael Hurlston, vice president and general manager of Broadcom's WLAN business unit. The price difference between 802.11n and 802.11g solutions was a fundamental factor in Broadcom's shift in outlook for 802.11n chips, Hurlston added. Since the manufacture of 802.11g chips is mature and the prices for 802.11g devices are very competitive, 802.11g will continue to be the mainstream for the industry, Hurlston stated.
