Re: [STDS-802-11-AANI] Follow up of 802.11 AANI SC Teleconference 20-11-17

Dear Chair and all, 

I concur with what the chair has said in the email below.

In accordance with the chair’s guidance, I have responded to Roger's email.
Paraphrasing those thoughts here:
*	Let us focus on the work that needs to be done for the January
meeting, with the full understanding that these are internal deliverables.
*	Let’s allocate time in the January meeting to debate the exact form
and depth of the submission to  the ITU-R (better to have the documents and
debate how much of it to use, than be stuck with not having the required
*	Not an iota of the work that will go in to the completion of the
template will go waste because we will need it for the ITU submission in any
case, whenever that takes place. The chair has articulated this point very
well in his email below: “Even if we decide to modify what we will be
contributing to the January ITU-R WP5D meeting, we will still need to
address all of the template sections to submit a proposal”
*	We have not participated in the ITU-R discussions so far, did not
contribute to the development of the guideline documents as a result of
which there is little to no awareness of our proposal. The quicker we make
our submission plans known and provide groups (especially reviewers and
independent evaluation groups) with information about our proposals, the
better it is for us to generate acceptance for our proposal. Based on my
earlier experience, the importance of this early sharing and socialization
cannot be overemphasized. 
*	Most importantly, in completing the templates, we will develop
confidence on which requirements we can meet and where we need more work
(gap analysis), pavng the way for concrete action items to be defined for
subsequent meetings.  

As to your request for volunteers, I volunteer for the following sections
(if others want to contribute to these sections, I will be happy to work
with them): Link Budget Template   Link Budget Template for Indoor Hotspot-eMBB   Link Budget Template for Dense Urban-eMBB2   Link Budget Template for Rural-eMBB

For the 11/27 meeting, I will be preparing a contribution. 

Thanks and Kind Regards

Subject: Follow up of 802.11 AANI SC Teleconference 20-11-17

Dear All,

As the presentation of the contribution
ation-for-imt-2020-5g-candidate-submission.pptx> – “Preparation for IMT-2020
(5G) Candidate Submission” and related discussions took up most of the time
of the teleconference, we did close several items that are necessary to
progress the work.

  1.  We did not reach agreement on what we should contribute to the 31
January ITU-R WP5D meeting
  2.  We did not get an opportunity to address the assignment of various
template sections
  3.  We did not get an opportunity to agree a schedule for this work
Hence, to progress the work towards meeting our very aggressive deadline I
believe we should attempt to reach agreement on these open items on the
reflector prior to the next 802.11 AANI SC Teleconference on 27 November @
11:00 am EST  or at least have some discussion so that we are more aware of
the issues to be addressed at the upcoming teleconference(s).  I realize
that this is a short week (in the US) and it will be difficult for some
members to contribute to email discussions prior to the next teleconference,
but I think we should try.

Roger Marks has already kicked off a reflector discussion addressing item 1
and I encourage participants to engage in the discussion.

Regarding item 2, I’m including the list of template sections for
assignment from the 20 November agenda below – please volunteer to help move
this work along by claiming a section or several sections in the table
below.  Even if we decide to modify what we will be contributing to the
January ITU-R WP5D meeting, we will still need to address all of the
template sections to submit a proposal.

Lastly, item 3 the Schedule: any thoughts on mile stones and when they are
due would be very helpful in organizing the work.   I’ve copied the schedule
template from the 20 November Teleconference agenda below, please feel free
to contribute mile stones and due dates so we can progress this work.  We
have already missed completing the assignment of tasks during by 11/20.
