Paul has authorized me to run an email ballot on the following motion:
Grant permission to submit three published 802.11 amendments (802.11aa, 802.11ae and 802.11ad) to ISO under the PSDO process, for approval as 8802 standards.
Although this is one ballot within the EC, each will be submitted individually to ISO.
This motion falls under the OM clause titled â??8.1 Procedure for coordination with other standards bodiesâ?? and we agreed that communications with the ISO would be approved by the EC prior to submission.
This ballot will be conducted per OM Clause â??4.1.2 Voting rulesâ??
This will be a 10-day ballot, closing on 31st January 2013 AOE; I will terminate the ballot early if it is clear that the outcome has been decided.
In May 2012 IEEE SA published 802.11-2012 and subsequently submitted it to ISO for recognition as an 8802 standard. The ISO ballot successfully completed in October 2012 and the standard 8802-11:2012 is available in the ISO store for 238 CHF
More recently, there has been considerable discussion both within 802 and within the SA regarding submission of additional revisions and amendments to ISO In particular, there has been discussion over whether the European Commission Multi-stakeholder Platform activities would warrant submissions of amendments to the EC rather than ISO. . The discussion caused 802.11 to withhold amendment submissions to ISO until some questions were resolved regarding the best method to guarantee continued acceptance of 802 standards in Europe. Those questions have been resolved in favor of the decision to submit amendments to ISO.
