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