46 Tgu – Wireless Interworking
Background As IEEE hotspot deployment has become more widespread throughout the world, several problem areas have emerged with the way in which the hotspot behaves regarding its connection to external networks (e.g. the internet, cellular networks) which could be solved by standardization. As the diversity of hotspots have proliferated, users have started to become frustrated with the non uniformity of interworking systems (e.g. poor service definition, disparate registration procedures, non-ubiquitous roaming). Within the IEEE community it was felt that an amendment to the IEEE standard would be in order to address these problem areas. Generically these issues have been referred to as interworking, which refers to the functionality and interface between an IEEE access network and any external network.

47 Tgu – Wireless Interworking
Objectives The primary objective of IEEE u, is to create an amendment to address interworking issues between an IEEE access network and any external network to which it is connected. Interworking, is actually a collection of different functionalities: Online Enrolment Network Selection Security Authorization from Subscriber Network Media Independent Handover Support Status: Last Draft balloted was D 13.0 – Published 2011

48 802.11V Network Management Explosive growth of wireless LANs emphasized the need to Maintain network quality and security Manage the RF environment largely driven by interference from neighbouring wireless networks Secure the network to maintain privacy and prevent unauthorized use. Optimize the Network improve the ability to shape the network Status: Last Draft balloted was D 16.0 – Published Feb 2011

49 TGv Content – Increased Station Power Saving
Traffic Filtering Service Enables the AP to filter traffic for the station, and deliver only frames of a specified type. WNM-Sleep Mode Provides an additional, extended power save mode. When used with the Traffic Filtering Service, can provide significant station power savings, and provide a “Wake on WLAN” service. Flexible Broadcast/Multicast service Enables multicast frames to be sent at longer delivery intervals and higher data rates, improving performance of multicast applications, and reducing station “awake time” Proxy ARP Enables stations to remain in power save mode longer TIM Broadcast – Enables stations to check for queued traffic without receiving a full Beacon frame.

50 Example TGv Based Applications
“Wake on WLAN” Service– Stations sleep and are “awakened” when specific frames are received Example application: User leaves corporate desktop in “sleep mode”, goes home, uses VPN from home to corporate LAN, wakes up and uses desktop remotely Reduces power consumption of end devices, even stationary ones Improved client power saving Proxy ARP, TIM Broadcast, FBMS, Sleep Mode, Traffic Filtering “Wireless Speakers” – Use Location services timing measurements to support audio synchronization Improved Multicast Performance Network Diagnostic Analysis/Troubleshooting Co-located Interference Reporting, Diagnostic Reporting, Event Reporting, Multicast Diagnostics Reporting

51 802.11w – Protected Management Frames
One of the frame types defined in is “Action” sub-type “Management” Management frames were previously less well protected than data frames. The objective of this was to improve the security by providing data confidentiality of action management frames, deauthentication and disassociation frames This standard protects networks from attack by malicious systems that forge disassociation requests that appear to be sent by valid equipment Status: Last Draft balloted was D 10.0 – Published 2009

52 802.11z Tunneled Direct Link The purposes of this amendment are to create a new DLS mechanism which: a) Does not require access point upgrades (i.e. supports DLS operation with the non-DLS capable access points), b) Which supports power save mode (when associated with either DLS or non-DLS capable access points), and c) Continues to allow operation of DLS in the presence of existing DLS capable access points Status: Last Draft balloted was D 13.0 – Published 2010

53 P802.11z example Access Point maintains control over network connection air times However, device pairs can optimize their conversation and use modes not supported by the access point

54 802.11 AA Video Transport Stream
Provides a set of enhancements to MAC to significantly improve video streaming performance while maintaining data and voice performance by improving Multicast/Broadcast video streams for link reliability with low delay and jitter. Enhancements to the MAC for robust video streaming offer: Interworking with relevant mechanisms including, but not limited to, 802.1Qat, 802.1Qav and 802.1AS Graceful degradation of video streams when there is insufficient channel capacity. Increasing robustness in overlapping BSS environments, without the requirement for a centralised management entity. Modifying EDCA timing and parameter selection for video transport Status: Just completed WG balloting of draft 3.0 – preparing to go to Sponsor Ballot

55 802.11AC Very High Throughput <6GHz
Goal: A multi-user BSS peak aggregated throughput of at least 1Gbps as measured at the MAC data service access point (SAP) Robust and flexible bandwidth management: native support for simultaneous multiple bandwidth operation (within a given frequency band) Add optional outdoor compatible delay spread resistance Below 6GHz carrier frequency operation excluding 2.4GHz operation and ensuring backward compatibility with legacy IEEE802.11a/n devices in the 5GHz unlicensed band. Status: 0.1 draft out for review – planning to begin balloting on D1.0 in March 2011

56 802.11AD Very High Throughput
60 GHz PHY 2GHz channel bandwidth, 4Gbps data rates Market drivers for Very High Throughput wireless LAN, include: Never ending quest for higher performance computing drives higher processing power. Media appliances are moving to HD content, driving 10X storage capacity and bandwidth requirements. Mainstream Wired LAN products have shifted to Gigabit per second speeds. The trend for a purely wireless campus drives the need for wired equivalent multi-Gigabit per second wireless solutions. Aggregate capacity increase using reduced cell sizes. Status: Completed preparation of draft 1.0 – balloted in WG October Preparing comment resolutions for next draft revision and ballot.

57 802.11ae QoS for Management Frames
This project will consider the classification and prioritization of management frames All IEEE MAC management frames are transmitted at the highest priority. Previous amendments ‘k’, ‘y’, ‘w’, ‘v’, and ‘u’ have introduced features that rely on management frames, which are essential for network operation. In some cases, the management traffic will contend with network data traffic and reduce the performance of certain WLAN applications. Providing a mechanism to prioritize management frames will enable improved performance of IEEE networks This project will consider management frames that are used in both pre- and post- association. Management frames of subtype Action will be considered. Other management frame types may be considered. Status: Just completed ballot on 2nd draft.

58 802.11af - Operation in the TV White Spaces
This project will make the necessary MAC and PHY changes to enable products to take advantage of this additional spectrum available due to the global transition to Digital TV (DTV) and lightly used sub-Gigahertz RF spectrum now becoming available, much of it for unlicensed, license exempt and/or lightly licensed use. Example, On November 4, 2008, the United States FCC approved Report & Order , allowing unlicensed use of TV band spectrum, in accordance with Part 15. Subpart H of FCC rules. Ofcom (UK) is in the process of making this Digital Dividend band available, and the EU has conducted a consultation on the band. Other regulatory domains are expected to follow. Status: Produced draft 1.0 – just completed first ballot in February 2011

59 TGah – Sub 1 GHz Project proposes to use spectrum below 1 GHz.
Lower frequency will increase range Channel bandwidths have typically been 20 MHz or more, lower channel bandwidth will be required. Status: New Task group November 2011– working on Use Cases and will begin to develop first draft

60 TG ai (FILS) Fast Initial Link Setup goal is to reduce initial association time to allow fast connection and data transfer in situations where users are very dense and highly mobile. Goal definition: Build a secure, fast initial authentication that a) is suitable for users experiencing a small dwell time in a cell (due to high mobility or small cell sizes users) b) scales for large number of simultaneously occurring initial authentications Status: New Task Group January 2011– describing Use Cases – will begin to develop first draft
