2 doc.: 18-12/0058 Submission July 2012 Michael Lynch, MJ Lynch & Associates LLCSlide 2 Overview This document reports on the regulatory matters considered and outputs from the Waikoloa and the May wireless interim in Atlanta.. Specific documents/actions were approved by the RR-TAG in response to the regulatory proceedings reviewed and inputs from various WGs. The RR-TAG is input driven. The attendance varies depending on the topics & documents being considered. E.g. one session in Atlanta had 25 people from different WGs helping draft an output. It has been suggested that outputs be made available to the EC 48 hours in advance. Also suggested is that outputs do not go to the closing EC plenary but be reviewed and submitted ( documents) or approved by a 10 day EC ballot (802 documents). The 48 rule would make it difficult for those WGs with mid week plenaries. Either may cause missed filing dates. Shortening the number of sessions would further complicate matters.

3 doc.: 18-12/0058 Submission July 2012 Michael Lynch, MJ Lynch & Associates LLCSlide 3 FCC Proceedings Considered in March at Waikoloa THE FCC WTB AND THE OFFICE OFENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY SEEK COMMENT ON PROGENY’S M-LMS FIELD TESTING REPORT (Docket No ) (18-12/21r1) Comment Date: March 15, 2012, Comment Date: March 30, –The RR-TAG approved to say that Progeny has failed to meet the FCC’s waiver requirements. The EC approved and the RR-TAG chair made the necessary edits and filed it with the FCC. FCC SEEKS COMMENT ON CERTAIN WIRELESS SERVICE INTERRUPTIONS. (DA No ). (Dkt No ) FCC seeks comment on concerns and issues related to intentional interruptions of wireless service by government authorities for the purpose of ensuring public safety. Comments Due: 04/30/2012. Reply Comments Due: 05/30/2012(18-11/101r0). –The RR-TAG recognized that in this proceeding the fact that many phones have a Wi-Fi capability that would allow them to continue to operate. It was decided to keep silent on that fact as it could impact IEEE technology.

4 doc.: 18-12/0058 Submission ITU-R Items Considered in March at Waikoloa The RR-TAG chair presented to the opening EC plenary data on Question ITU-R 236/1 which is likely to have an impact on several IEEE 802 technologies. The question is contained in doc and is being considered in ITU-R WP1A, Spectrum Engineering Techniques, whose parent group is ITU-R SG1, Spectrum Management. While the question was originally developed to deal with PLC/PLT issues it has been expanded to include wireless as well as wired technologies and asks: “What are the technical and operating features and the characteristics of wireless technologies and devices in support of power grid management systems?” “What are the data rates, bandwidths, frequency bands and spectrum requirements needed in support of power grid management systems?” July 2012 Michael Lynch, MJ Lynch & Associates LLCSlide 4

5 doc.: 18-12/0058 Submission July 2012 Michael Lynch, MJ Lynch & Associates LLCSlide 5 ITU-R Items Considered in March at Waikoloa (2) “What are the interference considerations to radiocommunications associated with the implementation of wireless and wired technologies and devices used in support of power grid management systems?” “How will spectrum availability be affected by interference associated with widespread deployment of such technologies and devices?” The outcome of this question will be the identification of spectrum, technologies, bandwidths and data rates for wireless Smart Grid management. The RR-TAG chair recommended to the EC that IEEE 802 make an initial input to the June, 2012 meeting of ITU-R WP1A. While the EC has taken initial steps to form an EC SG unless the wireless WGs step forward at their May Interim and develop an initial input IEEE 802 will miss the 2012 opportunity. The 2013 opportunity will be to find a way to counter what others, such as the IMT-Advanced/LTE interests, will have input to WP1A. The choice is clear – lead, follow

6 doc.: 18-12/0058 Submission ITU-R Items Considered in March in Waikoloa (3) or get out of the way. The latter would mean to ignore the ITU-R wireless related Smart Grid work and trust others to look after IEEE 802’s interests. The current pace seems to suggest that IEEE 802 will at best “follow” what develops in ITU-R WP1A rather than lead. On Thursday the RR-TAG reviewed, edited and approved three documents from IEEE There were two going to ITU-R WP5D (IMT-Systems) and one to ITU-R WP5A (Land mobile service above 30 MHz (excluding IMT); wireless access in the fixed service; amateur and amateur-satellite services). Their parent group is ITU-R SG5 (Terrestrial Services). IEEE is the only WG with any interest/connection with ITU-R WP5D. All three were approved by the EC and will be edited if needed and submitted by the RR-TAG chair in his additional role of IEEE SA Technical Liaison to ITU-R. The documents were: July 2012 Michael Lynch, MJ Lynch & Associates LLCSlide 6

8 doc.: 18-12/0058 Submission July 2012 Michael Lynch, MJ Lynch & Associates LLCSlide 8 Other Items From the March Waikoloa Meeting On Thursday PM1 IEEE presented a document ( ) titled “THE IEEE 802 LAN/MAN STANDARDS COMMITTEE POSITION ENDORSING WORLD-WIDE LICENSE-EXEMPT USAGE OF THE TELEVISION BAND WHITESPACES”. It was narrowly approved in the RR-TAG (3/2/1). During discussion at the EC Closing Plenary the IEEE chair withdrew the document. It may, in some other form be presented at the July IEEE 802 Plenary. Important note; Many of the wireless WGs have difficulty developing a final document to bring to prior to Thursday afternoon. In the past those documents approved by were sent to the EC on Thursday after completed the work. For various reasons that did not happen this time. A review of my log shows that proposals for the EC to consider were still being submitted on Friday morning. While will adhere to the “24 hour” rule it may be useful to return to the policy where the EC allowed final approval on all IMT related correspondence with WP5D.

10 doc.: 18-12/0058 Submission July 2012 Michael Lynch, MJ Lynch & Associates LLCSlide 10 RR-TAG activity between meetings in April IEEE held two conference calls to complete the action on the contribution that was started at the March IEEE 802 plenary. The first call was held on Monday, April 23 rd, at 10:30 a.m. CDT. There was quite a lot of discussion on the purpose of the contribution to the FCC. The purpose was to encourage the FCC to allow a mix of both licenses exempt (also known as unlicensed) and licensed spectrum in the TV white spaces. After 1.5 hours of discussion the chair recessed the call until 10:30 on April 28 th. It was hoped that the various parties would talk offline. The meeting reconvened on April 25 th. After considerable discussion and further editing the chair called for a vote. A motion was made to approve the text and have the chair forward the document to the 802 EC for approval. The vote within to approve was 5/0/0, however there were a total of 20 interested persons (not all were voters) participating. The EC approved the document and the chair filed it electronically with the FCC.

11 doc.: 18-12/0058 Submission July 2012 Michael Lynch, MJ Lynch & Associates LLCSlide 11 ITU-R Items Considered in May in Atlanta The RR-TAG only approved one document during the May wireless interim. The baseline document for that ITU-R contribution was Doc titled “IEEE 802 Comments Supporting License Exempt Usage of TV Band White Spaces – ITU-R” This was a mildly edited version of the document that IEEE 802 submitted to the FCC.. Again there was much discussion about the relevance of this document, especially since it didn’t directly address the referenced document, which contains Question ITU-R 236/1 titled “Impact on radiocommunication systems from wireless and wired data transmission technologies used for the support of power grid management systems”. After further discussion of the actual ITU-R WP1A document it was decided to limit this initial IEEE 802 response to only a portion of the questions asked by the ITU-R. This input was approved as After approval by an EC ballot it was submitted to the ITU-R.

12 doc.: 18-12/0058 Submission July 2012 Michael Lynch, MJ Lynch & Associates LLCSlide 12 RR-TAG Items for June and July include:.Submission of by the RR-TAG (as the IEEE SA Technical Liaison to ITU-R) of three previously approved IEEE 802 contributioins. –June – 1 contribution to ITU-R WP5A –July – 2 contributions to ITU-R WP5D For the July IEEE 802 plenary there are: –Responses (or not) to at least 4 if not 5 liaisons received from ITU-R –Comments/contributions to the FCC or other national regulatory bodies as brought forward by the WGs. Further contributions to ITU-R, FCC and other bodies as needed. Don’t forget that for the most part you can maintain your voting rights in your home group when you participate in the RR-TAG (and, of course, log your attendance correctly!).
