Overview

The TG4s defines MAC related functions to enable spectrum resource management. It specifies
  • spectrum resource measurements and network performance metrics, such as packet error ratio, delay, etc,
  • information elements and data structures to capture these measurements,
  • procedures for collecting and exchanging spectrum resource measurement information with higher layers or other devices.
  • Current Status

    The TG4s recieved NesCom approval on August 22nd, 2014.
  • Project Authorization Request (PAR)
  • Criteria for Standards Development (CSD)

  • The TG4s start fist meeting on September 2014 Interim meeting.
    The Group drafting TG4s Technical Guidance Document and distributing "Call for Contributions" (15-14-06570-00).
    Presentations related to call for contributions are welcome.

    Timeline

    In 2010, IEEE802.15 created the Spectrum Resource Usage in WPAN (SRU) interest group. The IG SRU collected typical use cases requiring SRU functions. Furthermore, IG SRU found that the lack of a standardized Spectrum Resource Measurement (SRM) protocol pertaining explicit definitions of SRM parameters is a common underlying challenge and have to be addressed.
    Of particular interests are applications typical of those found in Hospital/Medical/Healthcare, Industrial Automation, and Infrastructure Monitoring.
    The SG SRU finalized PAR and CSD and submitted to the WG at the meeting on May 2014 and PAR review has done on July 2014.
