Background

Goals

July 2017

Background

The IEEE 802.11 PDED ad hoc was formed in September 2016 at the Warsaw interim meeting

·         PDED stands for Preamble Detect Energy Detect

·         PDED was an attempt to encapsulate the goal of the group …

·         which was to discuss issues related to the 3GPP RAN1 request to IEEE 802.11 WG to adopt an ED of -72dBm

·         Andrew Myles was appointed as Chair

The IEEE 802.11 PDED ad hoc met in San Antonio (Nov 2016), Atlanta (Jan 2017), Vancouver (Mar 2017) and Daejeon (May 2017).  In Daejeon in May 2017 it was decided to convert the IEEE 802.11 PDED ad hoc into the IEEE 802.11 Coexistence SC

Goals

The scope of the IEEE 802.11 Coexistence SC was agreed by the IEEE 802.11 WG in Daejeon in May 2017. They are:

·         Discuss the use of PD, ED or other 802.11 coexistence mechanisms with the goal of promoting “fair” use of unlicensed spectrum

·         Promote an environment that allow IEEE 802.11ax “fair access” to global unlicensed spectrum

The close down criteria for the IEEE 802.11 Coexistence SC are:

·         It is determined that the SC is unlikely to make further progress towards its goals; OR

·         IEEE 802.11ax completes Sponsor Ballot


July 2017 (To be completed)
