Dear IEEE P802.11 Balloting Group Member:

This e-mail is to advise you of the opening of the IEEE Standards Sponsor Ballot for:


Title: Standard for Information technology--Telecommunications and information exchange between systems Local and metropolitan area networks--Specific requirements Part 11: Wireless LAN Medium Access Control (MAC) and Physical Layer (PHY) Specifications

Scope: The scope of this standard is to define one medium access control (MAC) and several physical layer (PHY) specifications for wireless connectivity for fixed, portable, and moving stations (STAs) within a local area.

Purpose: The purpose of this standard is to provide wireless connectivity for fixed, portable, and moving stations within a local area. This standard also offers regulatory bodies a means of standardizing access to one or more frequency bands for the purpose of local area communication.

***** IMPORTANT *****
This is a Revision Ballot.

Balloters have many important responsibilities, but we would like to draw your attention to two of these responsibilities:

One of the responsibilities as a balloter is to ensure that the scope of the draft (including the scope statement in the draft, if any) is within the scope of the work authorized by the PAR. An affirmative vote indicates your agreement that the scope of the draft does not exceed the work authorized by the PAR.

(Note: It is acceptable for the scope of the draft to be less than the scope of the work authorized by the PAR.)

Another important responsibility is the obligation to comply with the IEEE-SA Patent Policy []. This is pertinent to informing the IEEE (or causing the IEEE to be informed) of the identity of the holders of any potential Essential Patent Claims that may be relevant to this draft. This does not apply if the patent claim is already the subject of an Accepted Letter of Assurance [] that applies to the draft under consideration.

For sponsor ballots of amendments and corrigenda, please contact your staff liaison if there is a need for the base standard or any approved amendments or corrigenda. Five business days are required to fulfill your request, so requests should be made as early in the ballot process as possible.

The ballot process may include communication among the Sponsor comment resolution group and Sponsor balloting group members regarding the substantive merits and possible resolution of comments. However, no comment resolution member, Sponsor balloting group member, or standards participant shall intimidate or coerce a specific vote from any Sponsor balloting group member. Please contact your staff liaison if you have any concerns.
