IEEE 802.11 PDED ad hoc

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

·       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

The IEEE 802.11 PDED ad hoc met at four subsequent IEEE 802.11 WG meetings. The meeting n Daejeon in May 2017, the IEEE 802.11 WG decided to convert the IEEE 802.11 PDED ad hoc into the IEEE 802.11 Coexistence SC.

IEEE 802.11 Coexistence SC scope

The IEEE 802.11 WG agreed on the scope of the IEEE 802.11 Coexistence in May 2017 as:

·       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 was agreed to be when:

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

·       IEEE 802.11ax completes Sponsor Ballot

IEEE 802.11 Coexistence SC status

The IEEE 802.11 Coexistence SC has met at every IEEE 802.11 WG plenary and interim session since July 2017. The Coexistence SC’s agendas, closing reports and minutes are available on the Mentor server.
