Overview

This standard defines PHY and MAC mechanism for Wireless Personal Area Networks (WPAN) Peer Aware Communications (PAC) optimized for peer to peer and infrastructureless communications with fully distributed coordination.

PAC features include:

• discovery for peer information without association,

• discovery signaling rate, typically 100 kbps,

• the number of devices in the discovery,

• scalable data transmission rates, typically 10 Mbps,

• group communication with simultaneous membership in multiple groups, typically up to 10,

• relative positioning,

• multihop relay,

• security,

• and operational in selected globally available unlicensed/licensed bands below 11 GHz capable of supporting these requirements.

Current Status

TG8 received NesCom approval March 30th 2012. The "Call for Applications" was issued. TG8 held its first meeting at the 802 Interim meeting in Atlanta May 2012. During the meeting, the group selected TG officers, had presentations on response of call for applications, and agreed to TG procedure and timeline.

TG8 had discussed Technical Guidance Document from July 2012 meeting. TG8 approved the TGD and issued call for proposals in March 2013 meeting. TG8 submitted response of call for proposals in ppt and doc format. TG8 also had presentations on the submissions in May and July 2013 meeting.

TG8 is working on PAC Framework Document.
