Air Time: Cisco vs. Meru: You Make the Call: Page 3 of 3

Since the time of publication, we have shared our protocol traces with Devin Akin, Chief Technology Officer at The CWNP Program, a company that has developed the Wi-Fi industry's leading independent wireless technical training and certification program. Akin is largely responsible for the CWNP technical curriculum, making him a credible and independent source of analysis. His preliminary analysis points to unconventional behavior by Meru equipment and to at least one specific violation of the standards (802.11ma-d9.0, section, which defines CTS??rules for non-QoS stations).

We'll continue to work with Akin and other protocol experts in an effort to better inform our readers on this important issue. We invite you to submit comments and, if appropriate, your own analysis.
