Dear EC,

Paul has authorized me to conduct a ten day EC mail ballot to approve document 18-11-0043-04, titled "Wireless telecommunication standards under development by IEEE 802 containing cognitive radio capabilities for operation in the TV White Space".


At the Sunday wireless leadership meeting here in Palm Springs it was agreed that 802.18 would host a meeting on Monday May 9th to review the various projects/proposed projects involved the TVWS and TV Band Devices (TVBD). That meeting was very well attended and during it Apurva suggested doing an information paper for the ITU-R that would describe what is happening within 802 that related to TVWS. The result was that .11, .15, .19 and .22 agreed to create this contribution to ITU-R.

On May 12th 802.18 hosted a meeting to review/edit the proposed ITU-R contribution. The group approved it by a vote of 5/0/2. (It had been determined that 802.18 had a quorum even without the wireless chairs participation.) It is available on the 802.18 Mentor website as 18-11-0043-04.

Please note that portions of the text in this contribution come directly from various PARs and it was felt that text had to presented as is.

Also please note that in order for this contribution to be considered by ITU-R WP1A (Spectrum Engineering Techniques) at their meeting which begins May 25th it needs to be received by the ITU-R Secretariat NLT 16:00 Geneva time on May 18th. Hopefully this ballot can be completed early so that the IEEE SA ITU-R liaison can send it by the morning of the 18th US CDT.

This contribution has proven to be quite timely. Just prior to the start of 802.18's May 12th meeting I received an email from the person representing the US Navy in ITU-R for matters dealing with CRS. In it he asked if I "had insight to IEEE engagement in standards development OR any knowledge of the equipment manufacturers currently exploring this market." This certainly answers as regards IEEE 802.




To approve document 18-11-0043-04 as an 802 document, authorizing the Chair of 802.18 to do necessary editorial and formatting changes and, using the document as a "template", create the appropriate input to the ITU-R Secretariat for consideration by WP1A and other ITU-R WPs. 802.18 approved this document by a vote of 5/0/2.

Moved: Mike Lynch
Second: Apurva Mody

Start of ballot: Friday, May 13th
Close of ballot: Sunday, May 22nd, 11:59 p.m. AOE
