[802SEC] Fwd: REMINDER for Comments : JTC1/SC6 N12413


This action detailed below is a surprise to me, not that I think it is a bad idea but rather that it is so long overdue and that something seems to be happening.

Do you know what/who is going on here?

Is this being proposed with the support of the SC25 Secretariat?

The residential gateway project (draft freely available through URL info below) and the systems that are worked on in WG1 in general have a significant lower layer content although projects have not in the past been divided along ISO layer model lines and the residential gateway document is of that ilk. It is more system or sub-system oriented than layer oriented.

In the past, I have always felt that the project work in WG1 was hampered by its structure as National Body based standards development as opposed to the industry/individual based development done in 802.

I am wondering if this proposed shift is also a plan to shift the basis of development from NB based, or is it just a plan to move the more or less existing structure from SC25 to SC6. It certainly is true that Korea (Secretariat of SC6) is quite a bit more proactive in the deployment of broadband Home Electronic Systems than Germany (Secretariat of SC25).

Is this work that we should try to bring into 802 or elsewhere in IEEE? If it were proposed for 802 then we would have to cope with either (1) disposing of their upper layer work or (2) expanding the scope of 802 significantly upward into the 7 layer model. The latter is something that would very likely have significant impact on some long standing relationships.

Noting that the SC25/WG1 program of work includes considerable network elements, the US considers that SC6 might be interested in supporting a transfer of SC25/WG1 and the SC25/WG1 program of work from SC25 to SC6.  The current SC25/WG1 work program would fit much better within the scope of SC6, where it would benefit from the complementary network protocol (plus security and directory) expertise that exists in SC6.  This would lead to greater efficiency in developing home networking standards, and avoid unnecessary duplication of work.  The US requests national body comments no later than June 1, 2003.

Enclosed is an example of one of the SC25/WG1 projects, the residential gateway.  It embodies both wide area and local area networks.

The FCD for the residential gateway is available on the web under "Document Library" as "SC25 WG1 N1032.doc" at:
