Paul and EC members

 

It appears to me that Brian Matthews has delivered on Stuart’s promise. I am attaching the file he sent me and copied Bob, maybe another EC member can second the motion.

Dear EC members,

 

I am withdrawing the below motion, since we are waiting for Stuart and Bob Heile to submit their closing WG reports to Bob O'Hara.  As soon as that is done, I'll re-instate the motion.  I apologize for the error.

 

Regards,

The IEEE 802.11 Working Group for Wireless LANs develops wireless
communication standards comparable to wired-LAN Ethernet standards. It
focuses on the interface among wireless clients and a base station or
access point, as well as among wireless clients.<
http://www.ieee802.org/11/>


Task Group e - Quality of Service approved for Sponsor Ballot
Task Group e resolved all comments from the last Sponsor Ballot and is
in the final stages of preparing for a Sponsor Recirculation Ballot,
which should occur as soon as it can be scheduled. The IEEE P802.11e
amendment will provide for standardized Quality of Service (QoS) to
enhance voice, video and other time-bounded or prioritized network
traffic.

IEEE 802.11i Security Specification complete
The IEEE 802.11i Task Group did not meet in July because on June 24th
the IEEE Standards Board gave its approval for 802.11i to become an
official amendment of IEEE 802.11.  The IEEE will now prepare the
document for publication.

Task Group j resolves comments from Sponsor Ballot
The TGj Working Group worked on resolving comments from their recent
Sponsor Ballot. A Sponsor Recirculation Ballot will be issued as soon
as possible. The IEEE P802.11j amendment specifies how products must
operate for use in the newly allocated 4.9 - 5 GHz frequency bands in
Japan.

Task Group k Radio Resource Measurement
The group continues to refine their document in preparation for a
Working Group Letter Ballot. After extensive review within the Task
Group, the concensus is that the document is ready for a Working Group
letter ballot which will be issued as soon as possible.


Task Group m - Maintenance
At the July meeting the Maintenance group continued to address items
on the work list.  TGm also received and adopted three submissions
regarding revisions to the standard.

Task Group n - High Throughput
Having completed the preparatory documents (Channel Models, Functional
Requirements, Comparison Criteria, and Usage Models), the High
Throughput Task Group planned out the next few meetings.  The group
has been deciding how to deal with the large number of notifications
of intent to submit proposals which have been received. Proposals will
begin to be heard at the September meeting in Berlin  TGn received 62
letters of intent to submit technical proposals (21 complete and 41
partial).  The deadline for posting of proposals and related documents
is August 13.  Proposal presentations will begin at the September
meeting in Berlin.  Voting is expected to begin at the subsequent
November meeting in San Antonio.

Task Group r - Fast Roaming
HAt the July meeting TGr selected their Recording Secretary and
Technical Editor.  Documents for Use Cases Scope and Functional
Requirements were updated.  A call for proposals has been issued with
a deadline for submitting a letter of intent by 17-August-2004 and
proposal papers must be available on IEEE 802.11 document server by
15-October-2004.  Presentation of proposals will begin at the November
meeting.

Task Group s - ESS Mesh
TGs received 18 presentations related to ESS Mesh including 4 during
the joint TGr/TGs meeting.  TGs elected a Task Group Technical Editor.
  TGs is working toward a call for proposals possibly in November with
a four month window for submission.  Priorities for the September,
2004, 802.11s meeting will be : Election of Task Group Secretary;
Presentations/Discussions related to Functional Requirements and
Evaluation Criteria; Presentations/Discussions in other relevant areas
(Usage Cases, QoS, Security, Definitions, and Routing).

Publicity Standing Committee
The IEEE 802.11/802.15 Publicity Joint Standing Committee received
reports from industry groups (Wi-Fi Alliance, WiMedia Alliance, and
Bluetooth SIG). Draft text for a press release was reviewed. Also,
external communication and references to IEEE 802.11/15 in articles
and public white papers was discussed.

WLAN Next Generation Standing Committee (WNG)
The Wireless LANs Next Generation Standing Committee continued
exploratory discussions on new technologies and how other standards
groups might cooperate with IEEE 802.11 to bring about the ubiquitous
wireless networking envisioned for the future. Discussions and
presentations primarily focused on updates from groups like ETSI-BRAN,
MMAC, and also presentations regarding Access Point architecture.

Wireless Access for Vehicular Environments(WAVE) Study Group
Having achieved Working Group approval for the PAR in a recent Working
Group letter ballot, WAVE will be approved to become a Task Group as
soon as 802 Executive Approval is granted.  The study group also
reviewed draft amendment text to be adopted as soon as Task Group
status is finalized.

Wireless Interworking with External Networks(WIEN) Study Group
The WIEN Task Group refined their statement of technical issues,
helping to define PAR scope, purpose and roadmap of a future Task
Group (TG). The group also updated their open issues list as described
on their Update page on the IEEE 802.11 website.  These issues will
now be distilled into forming the PAR and 5 Criteria of a proposed
future Task Group.  In addition, the meeting also discussed the
creation of liaisons to other bodies, composing a liaison letter to
the IETF regarding "Network Detection and Selection" for IEEE 802.11
technology.

Wireless Network Management(WNM) Study Group
The WNM Task Group received presentations and continued with their
work on a PAR and 5 Criteria document set to be submitted to the
Working Group for approval .

Wireless Performance Prediction(WPP) Study Group
WPP successfully completed the Project Approval Request process and
will become Task Group t. This session primarily consisted of hearing
pesentations, the most notable on Test Templates.  For more
information see the tutorial here

802.11 Chair, at stuart.kerry@philips.com

Upcoming IEEE 802.11 Meetings:
* 12-17 September 2004 -- IEEE 802.11 interim meeting in Berlin,
Germany in conjunction with meetings of the other 802 wireless groups

The IEEE 802® LAN/MAN Standards Committee encompasses many evolving wired and wireless local and metropolitan area network technologies. Decisions made by the eight active IEEE 802 Standards Working Groups will shape communications for years to come. The Committee functions within the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Standards Association (IEEE-SA), a leading international membership organization serving today's industries with a complete portfolio of standards programs.

Given the great interest in these groups and their actions, IEEE-SA has created this e-mail News Bulletin for the news media and other interested parties. This issue covers Working Group activities during the IEEE 802 Plenary Meeting, 9-14 March 2003 in Dallas, Texas, USA. Nearly 850 people from approximately 400 organizations attended. To go directly to the activities for a specific Working Group, click on a button below.

Note: This Bulletin details the status of active IEEE 802 standards efforts. Each one follows a well-defined process from concept to completion. For an overview of how consensus standards are developed at the IEEE, see http://standards.ieee.org/resources/development/. The glossary at the end of this bulletin can be of help in understanding many of the terms used below.
