China grants WLAN technology rights to more companies

By Henry Lee, IDG News Service |  Mobile & Wireless

USITO has expressed concerns that the requirement for foreign vendors to enter into coproduction agreements could put them at a disadvantage to their Chinese competitors. In addition, Wi-Fi Alliance has noted that a Chinese WLAN standard that is not compatible with 802.11 could lead to higher prices for Chinese end users and create interoperability problems.

"This will add cost to end users but considering the higher safety the new standard provides, it is acceptable," Li said.
