802.11v - alphabet

Wireless LAN standard to cut power useUpcoming 802.11v standard scheudled for ratification in 2010 will improve power savings in wireless LANs | By Mikael Ricknäs, IDG News Service | September 19, 2008

(...) As the 802.11 group continues to develop more wireless LAN standards and uses the entire the alphabet, it's time to add another letter. "When the alphabet runs out, you start over, but with an 'a' in front: aa, ab, ac, and on up to az, followed by ba, bb, bc, bd, and on up to bz. In fact, there already is a task group aa at 802.11, which is developing a specification for video streaming," said Gast.
