Motorola announced that its MeshConnex networking technology will support the 802.11s meshing standard being developed by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers.

IEEE earlier this year announced the establishment of an 802.11s draft standard, which could undergo changes before being finalized as early as next year. Motorola will update its MeshConnex technology — at the core of the company's mesh products — to mirror work at the standards body, said Peter Stanforth, director of technology for Motorola's mesh-networks product group.
