Background

Integrated MilliMeter Wave is a new Study Group within the IEEE 802.11 working group that will define a Project Authorization Request (PAR) to address the problem of WLAN non-standalone operation in unlicensed bands between 42 and 71 GHz using single-user (SU) OFDM based transmissions. An 802.11 device should also support 2.4 to 7.25 GHz (sub-7 GHz) unlicensed band operation.

Goals

The new project on PHY and MAC operation between 42 and 71 GHz leverages or reuses existing PHY and MAC specifications defined for the operation in sub-7 GHz bands, e.g. SU transmission PPDU format and MAC frames, and defines bandwidth modes operating in non-overlapping channels.

This amendment shall ensure coexistence with legacy IEEE 802.11 devices operating in the identified unlicensed bands.

The main achievements of this meeting were

       4 contributions focused on the scope of the project

       PAR and CSD documents are stable since 4 months.

       As planned by SG timeline, we ran motion on PAR and CSD documents

       Motion failed: PAR 130Y, 49N, 27A

       The group was unable to identify tangible reasons for these unexpected last-minute objections
