        Nendica Status update: 1-19/0053r0

        The 802.11 WG supported AANI SC’s request to develop a “press release”, or equivalent, on 802.11ax performance self-evaluation for IMT-2020 Indoor Hotspot and Dense Urban.  Work on the development of a “press release” by IEEE staff will begin soon. 

        The 802.11 WG agreed to send an LS to 3GPP TSA SA on WLAN Integration in 5G System Rel-17. Approved draft LS: 11-19/1300r1

        Discussion was initiated to consider generating a report on: Interworking between IEEE 802.11 WLAN and 3GPP 5G Core Network – see  11-19/1160r1 – these discussion will continue on the e-mail reflector and possibly a teleconference if there is sufficient interest.

Contributions:

1.     11-19/1160r1 Proposal on Interworking between IEEE 802.11 WLAN and 3GPP 5G Core Network– Hyun Seo Oh (ETRI)
The proposal was discussed and 5 members express interest in evaluating the scope and usefulness of generating a Report on 802.11/3GPP Interworking – this will be discussed on the reflector

2.     11-19/1283r0 Updated 11ax evaluation for IMT-2020 Dense Urban, adding mobility
11-19/1284r0 Summary of 802.11ax performance self evaluation IMT-2020 Indoor Hotspot and Dense Urban

        Contributions were discussed on the IMT-2020 process and how it related to 802.11 (see contributions below)

        Contributions were discussed regarding the submission of a joint Nufront and 802.11 joint IMT-2020 proposal based on Nufront EUHT and 802.11ax. Note: that there were Teleconferences held on April 8th, 16th, 22nd, and 29th, where additional discussions related to this topic were had.  802.11 concluded that it does not support the submission of a joint IMT-2020 proposal. (see contributions below)

        Additional contributions on 802.11ax IMT-2020 performance were discussed (see contributions below).  It was concluded that additional contributions on this topic will be provided and that the work on this activity should continue.
