Broadband over Power Line (BPL) PAR
BPL PAR The Communication Society has sponsored a PAR for broadband over power line. The PAR has been distributed to the EC reflector Several issues have been raised concerning this PAR –In order for the technology to be bridgeable they would need to participate in –There is potential interference from BPL that could affect the wireless 802 standards
Meeting to Discuss BPL PAR We held a meeting to discuss the BPL PAR at the chairs request Attendees: Paul NikolichTom Siep Gunter KleindlBarry OMahony Chantal GazailleChantal Davis Carl StevensonSteve Whitesell Brian FordSteve Shellhammer Mat Sherman
Meeting Summary Paul expressed some of his concerns about the BPL PAR Barry OMahony gave a presentation on US BPL Regulatory Status, r0 Carl Stevenson showed a video demonstrating the effect of interference from BPL on amateur radio Discussed recommendations to Paul on his comments on the BPL PAR
Recommendation to Paul on BPL PAR 13 Scope of Proposed Project The scope of the project is too broad. The PAR should be broken into at least two individual PARs for first/last mile and in-premises distribution. Please add to the Scope a statement that they intend to work with the Registration Authority Committee (RAC). The PAR does not address coexistence with IEEE 802 standards. Please add the following text to the Scope of the project The standard will coexist with IEEE 802 standards. The project will produce a coexistence assurance (CA) document demonstrating that the standard will coexist with IEEE 802 standards.
Recommendation to Paul on BPL PAR (cont.) 21 Additional Explanatory Notes The statement regarding the liaison with IEEE 802 needs to be reworded. Please change it to say It is the intension of the group to establish two liaisons with project IEEE 802. The two liaisons will be with the IEEE architecture working group and the coexistence technical advisory group.
Final Recommendation The 802 Architecture Committee recommends that the LMSC join the BPL sponsor ballot, since it will be using Entity Voting
