1 doc.: IEEE /380r0 Submission May 2002 Duncan Kitchin, IntelSlide WG Assigned Numbers Authority Duncan Kitchin Intel Corporation

2 doc.: IEEE /380r0 Submission May 2002 Duncan Kitchin, IntelSlide 2 Problem Statement Several sets of ID numbers or numbered resources are used in –element IDs –capbility information field bits –management action frame action codes No WG-wide mechanism for assigning numbers Several instances of collisions –TGi/TGe element ID collisions – /802.11d element ID collisions

3 doc.: IEEE /380r0 Submission May 2002 Duncan Kitchin, IntelSlide 3 Proposed Solution Create an assigned numbers authority, WG ANA Mechanism for requesting numbers from a central resource Central repository of assigned numbers Appeals mechanism Mechanism for adding a new resource

4 doc.: IEEE /380r0 Submission May 2002 Duncan Kitchin, IntelSlide WG ANA Chair will nominate a member of the WG to be the ANA Document will be maintained and made available on the website

5 doc.: IEEE /380r0 Submission May 2002 Duncan Kitchin, IntelSlide 5 Request Procedure Request must be made by a TG or the WG, by way of a motion to request Outside body such as would make a request by asking the WG chair to sponsor the motion to request Request may ask for a specific number, but this will not necessarily be honored by the ANA

6 doc.: IEEE /380r0 Submission May 2002 Duncan Kitchin, IntelSlide 6 Request Procedure (Cont) Request submitted to the ANA by , cc WG chair Response, indicating assigned number, to be sent to the WG reflector by the ANA Last item of any resource will never be assigned – always automatically designated “escape bit/number” ANA is responsible for bringing exhaustion of any resource to the attention of the immediately following WG plenary session

7 doc.: IEEE /380r0 Submission May 2002 Duncan Kitchin, IntelSlide 7 Appeals Procedure An appeal may be made asking an assigned number to be revoked or modified An appeal must be made promptly An appeal to ANA assignment must be made by the end of the WG plenary or interim meeting that started immediately following the grant of the request

8 doc.: IEEE /380r0 Submission May 2002 Duncan Kitchin, IntelSlide 8 Adding Resources Initial assigned resources –element IDs –capability field bits –management action frame action codes Additional resources may be added by a motion in the WG

9 doc.: IEEE /380r0 Submission May 2002 Duncan Kitchin, IntelSlide 9 Motion Instruct the chair to nominate an assigned numbers authority and adopt the procedures outlined in document 11-02/380r0
