Re: [802SEC] +++EC Email Ballot+++ Motion for Network Equipment Upgradesl+++ends 19 August 2005
I approve the Network AP upgrades ONLY. But do not agree to the Tri-Mode
interface cards on the grounds of liability to 802 on Company or
Individual members machines being subject to failures or corruption of
those machines. Indeed my company will not allow this and it is a serious
offence to do so. To this end, I explained my reasoning at the closing EC
meeting on Friday. Not a good idea in my view. We should encourage them to
get them, BUT NOT to provide them. To which end, if there is an EC motion
to do this then I will DISAPPROVE the idea.

Subject: [802SEC] +++EC Email Ballot+++ Motion for Network Equipment
Upgradesl+++ends 19 August 2005
Dear EC Members,
This is a email ballot to make a determination on the below motion.
"Whereas our Network Manager, Tim Godfrey, has recommended that we proceed
with acquisition of the 802.11a modules for our Cisco 1200 APs that are
not currently so equipped, and that we make an effort to encourage our
attendees to migrate to 802.11a for reduced congestion:
I move that we proceed to acquire those additional 802.11a modules (20),
and further that we investigate a promotional deal to encourage more of
our attendees to upgrade to Tri-Mode (802.11b, 11g, 11a) interface cards,
which would also allow us to regulate client transmit power levels in
dense configurations. Terms of deal will be reviewed with the Network
Services Advisory Committee, and presented for final approval by the 802
EC prior to implementation."
The ballot opens 7PM ET Sunday 24 July 2005 and closes Friday 19 August
