Dear EC, At Monday's EC opening plenary 802.18 presented the IMT-Advanced Review Process that had been developed at the September wireless interim. During PM2 on 11/11/08 802.18 met and updated that process. Other interested WGs were in attendance. This review and update was foreseen during the September session since certain ITU-R WP5D dates that impact milestones in the submission process for IMT-Advanced proposals were still under discussion within ITU-R. Yesterday in Geneva ITU-R SG5 confirmed those dates. Also anticipated during the September session was that at this meeting 802.18 would consider changing the deadlines for submissions to 802.18 by participating IEEE 802 WGs. That has been done. Please note that on Slide 9 there is a reference to interested WGs furnishing a statement of intent to submit an IMT-Advanced proposal for 802.18 review. I would encourage groups interested in providing IMT-Advanced proposals to discuss that in their groups this week. Furnishing a statement of intent does not mandate that a WG would actually make a submission. It serves as a planning tool to 802.18 regarding expected work load. This document will be submitted to 802.18 for final approval during PM1 on Thursday. It is the 802.18's intention to submit this document and the IMT-Advanced Review process it establishes to the EC for approval during Friday's closing EC meeting. Also agreed in 802.18 was a method for ensuring timely approvals of the final and possible other informational inputs on IMT-Advanced to ITU-R WP5D. It was felt that the most effective method would be for the EC to delegate the approval authority for all such inputs during the January - October 2009 time frame to 802.18. Informational submissions would be approved during the January and May 802.18 interims while the final submission would be approved during the September interim. The agreed document is attached. It is also available on Mentor. Glad to discuss.
