Re: [802SEC] +++ EC motion to approve 802.11 Tiger Team DSRC letter to FCC OET +++


I vote Disapprove, for the following reasons:

*I have a negative view of any draft communication that is circulated without being labeled as a draft.

*It appears that the intent of the motion is approval under 8.2.1 (though it does not meet the specified conditions; i.e.,
stating in the first paragraph that it's the view of IEEE 802). I think it should be an 8.2.2 statement, from the 802.11 WG. It's clear from the text that this communication is from an 802 subgroup, not from 802. It basically says that work is happening, where that work is in a Tiger Team under a Standing Committee under a Working Group under 802. And it asks the recipient to direct inquiries to 802.11, not to the EC, which is inappropriate for an 802 statement. And, furthermore it says that the Tiger Team (not 802) will continue to provide future updates. Are all of these going to be issued as EC positions? I hope not.

Dear EC,


On Thursday,  January 24th, IEEE 802.18 reviewed and approved a letter from the IEEE 802.11 DSRC Coexistence Tiger Team to the FCC. The document, 18-14-0007-01-0000-dsrc-coexistence-tt-status-letter-to-oet, can be found on the RR-TAG Mentor web site. The document was approved by a vote of 6 yes, 0 no and 0 abstentions and will, with necessary edits and formatting changes made by the IEEE 802.18 chair, be forwarded by Paul to the Chief of the FCC’s OET.


The purpose of this letter is to update the FCC on the status of the work on Dedicated Short-Range Communications (DSRC) within the Tiger Team and to hopefully deter the FCC from publishing a rule making until the Tiger Team determines if a solution can be developed.


Paul has given me permission to conduct an EC ten day email ballot to approve his submitting this letter to the Chief of the FCC’s Office of Engineering and Technology.




“To approve, under OM Subclause 8.2, document 18-14-0007-01 subject to the early close provision of OM Subclause 4.1.2.."


Moved: Paul Nikolich


Seconded: Bruce Kraemer


Link to the document:  


Comments are to be submitted to the FCC’s Office of Engineering and Technology ASAP.


The ballot will start January 24th and end on February 2nd.


Best regards,
