Mon 6:30-8:30 High Speed Mobile Wireless Data

Air Interface Requirements and Technologies for Wireless Broadband IP Data
Services Supporting Vehicular Mobility

ABSTRACT:    (a brief paragraph describing content of the presentation)

User experience with broadband access to the Internet and corporate
intranets via high-speed wireline technologies and via 802.11 LANs have
raised the user’s expectations of what should be achievable in a fully
mobile environment. Applications that flourish in the high speed
environment, e.g. peer-to-peer networking, gaming, m-commerce, etc., can
then become ubiquitous.   The tutorial session consists of presentations
focusing on the requirements needed to support transparent access to
Internet and intranet services and the technological feasibility of
realizing these requirements with OFDM technology.

The primary objective of the tutorial is to drive toward the formation of an
Executive Committee Study Group to develop a project proposal addressing the
development of a standard for  a Wireless Broadband IP Data Air Interface in
the 450 Mhz to 3 Ghz Licensed Spectrum and Supporting Vehicular Mobility.

Mon 8:30-9:30 Dedicated Short Range Communications

Title: An overview of ITS vehicle communication standards (DSRC at 5.9 GHz)

In 1999, the FCC allocated 75MHz of spectrum at 5.850-5.925 GHz, above the
UNII band, for a "wireless link to transfer information between vehicles and
roadside systems". The FCC turned the standards development over to the ITS
(Intelligent Transportation Systems) industry and ASTM (American Society for
Testing and Materials). The ASTM DSRC (Dedicated Short Range Communications)
committee completed a selection process and decided on a system based on
802.11a in August 2001.

ISO is also developing related ITS communication standards in TC204 WG16.
The ASTM MAC and PHY standard for 5.9GHz wireless communication is referred
to as CALM5 (Communication Architecture for Long and Medium range at 5GHz)
in WG16.

This tutorial will provide information on ITS DSRC applications, the status
of the ASTM and ISO standards, and the relationship to the IEEE 802.11a
standard. The purpose is to inform 802 members of an emerging market for
wireless communication, and provide an update on related standards activity
in other bodies.

Tues 6:30-8:00 Millimeter Wave Gigabit Ethernet
I can't find Roger's tutorial form, but he has provided the following
As I mentioned last fall, some guys I know would like to develop a
point-to-point Gigabit-Ethernet-by-millimeter-wave-radio PHY. That
may be a bit simplistic, but that's the jist of it. There may be an
attempt to interface with the 802.16 MAC in some way as well. The
PHY would probably be influenced by the millimeter-wave 802.16 PHY.

I have recruited two major players in the field to organize a March
tutorial on the topic. They have agreed to submit the tutorial
request form by next week. This should give us a clearer view of
what they want to do.

I was hoping that we could make this a joint 802.16/802.3 tutorial.
The effort could grow into a Study Group and then a PAR. It's not
clear whether a Study Group would belong in 802.16, 802.3, or at
the ExCom level, but we could probably make a judgement after the

Tues 8:00-9:30 Ultra Wide Band Communications

TITLE OF TUTORIAL: 	 UWB Gets a Report & Order from the FCC - What is this
Technology and what is the Relevance to IEEE802

Matt Welborn - XtremeSpectrum, Inc.  <>
Kai Siwiak - Time Domain Corporation  <>

ABSTRACT:    (a brief paragraph describing content of the presentation)
This tutorial is timed to occur after the FCC report & order concerning part
15 intentional class B radiators.  This tutorial starts by explaining, “what
is UWB” and then presents the FCC report and order, giving the specifics of
the UWB rules and where they fit in the context of existing part 15.  Next a
history of the UWB proceedings will be given explaining the origins of the
technology leading up to the present FCC proceedings.  Emphasis will be
given on interference issues and studies.  In addition, the properties of
UWB will be explained such as range, throughput and location awareness.
Specific applications will be mentioned.  The tutorial closes by discussing
the relevance of UWB to IEEE802 - where UWB might first appear in IEEE802
and how UWB might coexist with other IEEE802 wireless systems.
