Overview

The end work product of the IEEE 802.15.10 Task Group on Layer 2 Routing (L2R) is the generation of a recommended practice for routing packets in dynamically changing 802.15.4 wireless networks.

Current Status

Final data and performance metric information, for 3 of the 4 proposals (heard at the July 2014 Plenary Session) was presented at the Sept. 2014 Interim Session in Athens. In Athens TG10 began work on the next steps - leading to the creation of a baseline proposal, which will be followed by the creation of a baseline draft.

As part of the next step efforts a proposal evaluation document, created prior to the session in Athens, was reviewed during the session. This document compares specific aspects of the 4 proposals w.r.t. the other proposals and will be used to guide TG10 to a baseline proposal.

Future Efforts

Final data and performance metric information for 1 of the 4 proposals heard at the July 2014 Plenary Session will be heard on the next TG10 call - Thurs., Oct. 2 (@ 7am Pacific).

Initial merging efforts are under way and a status update on these efforts will be given on the Oct. 9th TG10 call (@ 7am Pacific). Merging and other efforts leading to the generation of a baseline proposal will continue up to the Nov. 2014 Plenary Session in San Antonio, where it is anticipated that TG10 will finalize a baseline proposal and begin the process of generating a baseline draft.

A high level summary of the 4 proposals (heard in July) is being generated in preparation for the update with 802.1, scheduled to occur at the Nov. 2014 Plenary Session in San Antonio.

TG10 Timeline

The first meeting of L2R as an Interest Group occurred at the July 2012 Plenary session in San Diego.

The first meeting of L2R as a Study Group occurred at the January 2013 Interim Session in Vancouver. At the May 2013 Interim Session in Waikoloa the draft PAR and 5C were approved by the 802.15 WG. At the July 2013 Plenary Session in Geneva the PAR and 5C generated by the L2R Study Group were approved by the 802 EC.

Interest and active participation during the Interest Group and Study Group phases of the L2R activity was consistent, with an average of 20 attendees, representing more than 15 different entities on average at each of the 7 sessions.

The first meeting of 802.15.10 as a Task Group occurred at the September 2013 Interim Session in Nanjing. In this meeting, a draft use cases/requirements document was generated as well as a preliminary timeline and a request for inputs/presentation from 802.1 during the Joint Session in the November 2013 meeting.

TG10 developed a Technical Guidance Document (TGD) in order to give guidance to the proposers on what the final proposals are expected to cover/contain. Preliminary proposals were encouraged to cover as much of the content of the TGD as possible. In particular, proposers were directed to Section 7.1, covering the simplified scenario developed specifically for the call for preliminary proposals, and to provide the performance information requested in Section 7 based on this scenario. The scenario(s) aide in allowing everyone to have a common reference in which to compare and contrast the different proposals.

A call for preliminary proposals was issued prior to the May 2014 Interim Session. Four preliminary proposals were heard at the May 2014 Session in Waikoloa. After hearing the preliminary proposals TG10 continued developing the scenarios for the Call for Final Proposals. This effort continued for a few weeks after the May mtg.

The call for final proposals was issued prior to the July 2014 Plenary Session. Four proposals, covering the full proposal and partial/preliminary analysis/data were heard at the July 2014 Session in San Diego. TG10 also participated in a status update mtg. with 802.1. The next update with 802.1 is scheduled to occur at the Nov. 2014 Plenary Session in San Antonio.

The call for the 4 final proposals (heard at the July 2014 Plenary Session) to present final data and performance metric information was issued prior to the Sept. 2014 Interim Session. A finalized list of performance metrics, for the proposers to include in their data/analysis presentations at the September 2014 Interim Session in Athens, was completed and posted by the task group by the end of July 2014. As part of the next step efforts an example TOC and processes moving forwards documents were also generated and discussed during the calls prior to the Athens Session.

How to participate

You can participate by attending and making contributions to the 802.15.10 TG during the weekly calls and at the upcoming September 2014 Interim Session in Athens.
