Vice ChairRon Porat (Broadcom)
SecretaryYasuhiko Inoue (NTT)
Technical EditorRobert Stacy (Intel)

Background

In May 2013, the High Efficiency WLAN Study Group (HEW SG), a study group within IEEE 802.11 working group had started its activity to consider the improvement of spectrum efficiency to enhance the system throughput/area in high density scenarios of APs and/or STAs.

The study group was created based on the following straw poll and motion:

< Straw Poll >
Do you support starting a new study group called ghigh efficiency WLANh to enhance 802.11 PHY and MAC in 2.4 and 5GHz with a focus on:
  • Improving spectrum efficiency and area throughput
  • Improving real world performance in indoor and outdoor deployments
    • in the presence of interfering sources, dense heterogeneous networks
    • in moderate to heavy user loaded APs
< Motion >
Request an approval by IEEE 802 LMSC to form an 802.11 Study Group to consider High-efficiency WLAN [as described in doc 11-13-0339r2] with the intent of creating a PAR and five criteria.

The HEW SG has successfully developed PAR and CSD documents and the project 802.11ax has started in May 2014.
