Subject: [802SEC] +++EC Motion+++ Motion to approve a Press Release for the 802.11g Award for Technical Excellence
Dear SEC members,
This is a 10 day SEC email ballot to make a determination by EC motion to approve the below 802.11g Press Release. Please note I have placed a modifier on the closing time of the ballot such that it may close no later than 10 days after the start of the email ballot or as soon 24 hours after every member of the EC casts a definitive ballot (APP, DIS or ABS). The reason for the modifier is to allow the press release, if it is approved, to be issued as quickly as possible.
The LMSC executive committee approval of the below 802.11g Award press release.
Moved by Stuart Kerry
Seconded by Bob Heile
The email ballot opens on Monday Nov 24 6PM EST and closes the sooner of Thursday Dec 4 6PM EST or 24 hours after every member of the EC has cast a ballot, whichever comes first.
Please direct your responses to the EC reflector with a CC directly to me
- Paul Nikolich
Chairman, IEEE 802

I will Move, and Bob Heile will second.
Dear 802 EC Members,
I have great pleasure to inform you all that 802.11 WG has won a second prestigious award from PC Magazine.
The 20th Annual Awards for Technical Excellence
By the Editors of PC Magazine
November 18, 2003
I am very pleased to announce that the
IEEE 802.11 Working Group and the Wi-Fi Alliance have jointly been awarded the
PC Magazine 2003 award for Technical Excellence in the Protocol section for the
802.11gTM amendment, on Monday night at the Venetian Hotel,
Las Vegas, NV ceremony. Stuart J. Kerry (IEEE 802.11 Chair) and Frank Hanzlik
(Managing Director of Wi-Fi Alliance) were present to accept the award on behalf
of our members. The other two finalist in our category were Serial ATA and WS-I
"The IEEE's 802.11g standard
defines the way wireless LAN gear communicates at up to 54 megabits per second
while remaining backward-compatible with 11-Mbps 802.11b. This important
breakthrough enables streaming media, video downloads, and a greater
concentration of users without interference. In addition to technical hurdles,
the standards group had to overcome commercial rivalries and FCC rule changes to
enact the standard."
