doc.: 18-12/0076 Submission July 2012 Michael Lynch, MJ Lynch & Associates LLCSlide 2 Overview This document reports on the regulatory matters considered and outputs from the July San Diego IEEE 802 Plenary. 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. However only 3 voters were present when the document was approved. It has been suggested that 802.18 should meet “virtually” between interims and plenary sessions which it already does as needed. It also seems that the proposal includes no F2F meetings at interim or plenary sessions. The 802.18/RR-TAG sees this as a poor idea and, in reality, could lead to the disestablishment of the RR-TAG, leaving each WG to deal with their own regulatory issues which sometimes are conflicting.
doc.: 18-12/0076 Submission July 2012 Michael Lynch, MJ Lynch & Associates LLCSlide 3 Outputs from the San Diego Meeting 18-12-0068-00 a contribution to ITU-R WP5D for the “Update of WirelessMAN-Advanced RIT of Rec. ITU-R M.2012 (Meeting Y+1)”. It also provided typographical corrections to Recommendation ITU-R. M.2012. After approval this was sent to the closing EC session to be included on the Consent Agenda. WG 802.16 is the only IEEE 802 group with an interest in this activity. 18-12-0070-01 a contribution to ITU-R WP5D for the “Update of Subclause 5.6 of Rec. ITU-R M.1457-11 (Meeting X)”. After approval this was sent to the EC Closing session and included on the Consent Agenda. WG 802.16 is the only IEEE 802 group with an interest in this activity. 18-12-0071-01 a contribution to the US FCC in response to their request for extension of mandatory build out dates for M-MLS license holders in the 902 – 929 MHz frequency band. This was approved and sent to be included on the EC consent agenda.
doc.: 18-12/0076 Submission Other Items Considered in San Diego but not approved there The following two items for some reason never appeared on the EC closing plenary agenda hence were not approved at that time. The EC chair has approved sending them for a 10 day EC ballot which the RR- TAG chair will begin shortly. –18-12-0063-04 a contribution to ITU-R WP5A providing WG 802.11’s inputs on changes to Recommendation ITU-R M.1801 which describes radio interface standards for broadband wireless access systems. This document is needed for WP5A’s September, 2012 meeting. –18-12-0072-01 which is the cover letter for the WG 802.11 changes to Recommendation ITU-R M.1801. All five of these documents are available on the IEEE 802.18 Mentor web site. July 2012 Michael Lynch, MJ Lynch & Associates LLCSlide 4
doc.: 18-12/0076 Submission July 2012 Michael Lynch, MJ Lynch & Associates LLCSlide 5 RR-TAG Items for the September meeting include: A possible further submission to ITU-R regarding Recommendation M.1801 from the IEEE 802.16 WG. Work on the next input to ITU-R WP1A in regard to Question ITU-R 236/1 in particulat: –What are appropriate frequency bands for wireless management of a Smart Grid –What are appropriate technologies for wireless management of a Smart Grid, e.g. through put. Other regulatory matters that become apparent by the start of the meeting that may impact IEEE 802 technologies. 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!).
