Hi everyone,

I'm doing a class project on home wireless networking, focusing on a few of the 802.11 protocols (b/g/n).  As part of it I would like to do some research into upcoming/future technologies.  

I've hit a bit of a road block here.  It doesn't seem like much competes with the 802.11 standards in the wireless LAN area? Is there an upcoming 802.11 standard (after n)?

Or, are there interesting specific technologies that will be combined to make up the next standard? Any pointers would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Seems like higher speeds are always a goal in future networking trends.
