I have concerns with this:
(1) I disagree with the proposal to add the references to 802.11ad (which is for the 60 GHz band), because this is out of scope of Rev. M.1801. This can be seen directly from the title of M.1801, which refers to systems "in the mobile service operating below 6 GHz." In my view, the reference to 802.11ad should not be included in either Annex 1 or in Table 7 (in Annex 8). Note that the key sentence of M.1801 is that it "recommends… that the radio interface standards in Annexes 1 to 7 should be used for BWA systems in the mobile service operating below 6 GHz."
(2) Unapproved drafts should be identified as "P802…" rather than "IEEE 802….".
(3) I'd prefer to see an explicit motion that states under which procedure of the P&P the approval would be granted.
Given these concerns, my vote is Disapprove.
At the recent IEEE 802 EC closing plenary two IEEE 802.18 documents, both submitted to 802.18 by 802.11, failed to make it to the agenda. Prior to the close of that meeting Paul granted me permission to conduct a Ten Day EC Ballot for their approval. The final vote in IEEE 802.18 on both documents on July 19th was 2/0/0. I am including both documents in a single ballot since Doc. 18-12-0072.01 is simply the cover letter to transmit the changes proposed by IEEE 802.11 to Recommendation ITU-R M.1801. When sent to the ITU-R WP5A what is now Doc. 18-12-0063-04 will have been embedded into the cover letter. Recommendation ITU-R M.1801 deals with radio interface standards for broadband wireless access systems, including mobile and nomadic applications, operating in the mobile service. What IEEE 802.11 is proposing is that Annex 1 and Table 7 of Annex 8 of Recommendation ITU-R M.1801 be updated to include the approved amendments to the IEEE 802.11 - 2012 Base Standard. As is the ITU-R norm the necessary changes are shown in the “Track Changes” mode in Annex 1 and Table 7 of Annex 8 of the Recommendation. Paul has authorized me to conduct a ten day EC mail ballot to approve Documents 18-12-0063-04, titled "Draft Contribution to M.1801 Recommendation" and 18-12-0072-01 titled “Draft Cover Letter M.1801 Contribution”. Motion of a 10 day ballot: Start of ballot: 08 August Close of ballot: 17 August As per the current P&P the ballot will close earlier if it becomes apparent that the question has been determined.
