IEEE San Francisco Communications Society and the Distinguished Lecture
"A Technical Overview of 802.11n Wi-Fi"
Speaker: Edwin Menor, Meru Networks
Date: Tuesday, December 8th, 2009, 6:30PM
Location: The California Public Utilities Commission, 505 Van Ness Ave, San Francisco
WiFi networks have been rapidly deployed during the past decade as
technical advances in modulation techniques have combined with
the proliferation of mobile computing devices.
will provide an overview of the IEEE 802.11n specification and
its implementation in WiFi networks. Described will be a timeline
of 802.11n development and a summary of common practices in WLAN
planning and design. This presentation will also differentiate
between 802.11b/g and 802.11n technology and will describe how
802.11n can be deployed in the 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz unlicensed spectrum.

The Public Utilities Commission is on the corner of Van Ness and McAllister diagonally across from City Hall. There is a parking lot on Franklin between McAllister and Golden Gate and underground lots at Opera Plaza on Golden Gate between Franklin and Van Ness and at Civic Center Plaza on McAllister between Polk and Larkin. Parking under the PUC is not open to the public. Parking meters west of Van Ness are inactive after 6:00 PM. Any bus running on VanNess will stop on the corner.
Coming from the East by BART or Metro, it is best to transfer to a No. 5 Bus going west at the Powel Street Station. Alternatively, it is a 5 to 10-minute walk from Civic Center Station and about the same from Van Ness Station.
Coming from the West by Metro or bus, transfer to a bus going North on Van Ness.
There are two entrances to the building. One is under the state seal at the top of the steps on the corner of Van Ness and McAllister. The other is on Golden Gate between Franklin and Van Ness. The gates for both entrances close at 5:30 pm. It is better to use the Golden Gate entrance because the meeting room is just inside.
