doc.: IEEE 802.11-05/0208r1 Submission March 2005 Charles Cook, QwestSlide 2 Abstract This tutorial introduces Service Provider concerns over the impact an 802.11 standard would have due to weaknesses in definition. An 802.11 standard that does not address these concerns results in negative Service Provider impact Not resolving issues leads to proprietary solutions promoted into the market, the opposite goal of a standards effort Resolving weaknesses should be considered a major part of achieving Broad Market Potential for 802.11n and 802.11 in general See 11-05-0109-03-000n SP Requirements Detailed for specifics and details. Will be presented Wed 16 March in WNG SC meeting

doc.: IEEE 802.11-05/0208r1 Submission March 2005 Charles Cook, QwestSlide 4 The 802.11n consumer food chain Have need for high rate broadband link for high rate/quality content and access, otherwise why have 802.11n? Provide the service Help drive demand Get most of the complaints Sell… no service provisioning, typically In-home applications that will require the high data rates of 802.11n, can be mixed wired and wireless LAN 802.11 TGn sees currently We create innovations, its users that create the impact and applications
doc.: IEEE 802.11-05/0208r1 Submission March 2005 Charles Cook, QwestSlide 5 DSL/Cable Modem Evolution First modems deployed: Link in Ethernet out Second generation modems now defined as Gateways: Link in Ethernet ports out Third generation modems deployed: Gateway with WLAN AP DSL Router DSL Router w/ WLAN
doc.: IEEE 802.11-05/0208r1 Submission March 2005 Charles Cook, QwestSlide 6 Some Facts… Majority of SPs provide modem or gateway as part of service Modem/Gateway varies by SP, service type, monthly cost, and by geographic market Original Modem was simple DSL/Cable to Ethernet port, bridge function Gateways replacing modems –Gateway is modem with Router/switch –Gateway with AP is option for some SPs, mandatory for others In 2003, the number of: –APs sold in NA (all types): 6,111,016 –Wireless BB Gateways (DSL/Cable w/ Router/switch, AP) sold NA: 4,284,148 –Percentage ratio based on above: 70% Market data from Infonetics Research
doc.: IEEE 802.11-05/0208r1 Submission March 2005 Charles Cook, QwestSlide 7 Worldwide is similar to NA Infonetics Research Chart (actual to date (Q3 04) and forecasts) Wireless broadband gateways are Access Points with integrated router/switch capabilities and Cable/DSL uplinks that enable a group of users to share a broadband connection; can also have integrated security features such as VPN pass-through, firewalls, etc.

doc.: IEEE 802.11-05/0208r1 Submission March 2005 Charles Cook, QwestSlide 9 Additional SP drivers High Throughput WLAN must support video, voice, and data –Video requires substantial QoS, low error rate/jitter, encryption, and WLAN management Video session may be mobile, various rates –Voice requires QoS, low jitter, mobile sessions, service area –Data must be prioritized versus other types Dual mode handsets allow for shifting between public cell network and WLAN. Better to have a long term technology definition and standard that does not reduce WLAN air throughput and quality. 15-20% (industry estimate) of handsets sold in US starting 2006 will be dual mode WLAN and Mobile/Cellular
doc.: IEEE 802.11-05/0208r1 Submission March 2005 Charles Cook, QwestSlide 10 What do Service Providers need (in priority order) Highest possible consumer satisfaction… if WLAN doesnt work faultlessly consumers blame Service Provider or set provider 1.QoS - primary requirement – video and high throughput data sessions (possibly pedestrian-speed mobile) 1.Streaming, high data rate video delivery, error free, with WLAN bandwidth priority 2.Management capability of WLAN resources/bandwidth 3.Reach versus rate, surrender some rate to get best reach 1.Longer Range with high data rate to enable extended range applications Target reach/rates ~150m@45 Mbps and ~300m@25 Mbps 4.Mobility support 1.Reduce Doppler Effect – ex. support for WLAN sets in pedestrian speed sessions 2.Handoff 3.Mesh 4.Tight integration with mobile services to support IMS/MMS 5.Validate Encryption meets Content Provider requirements 6.Testability of any functionality to ensure qualification and certification 802.11 action eliminates the need for proprietary solutions, boosts the market
doc.: IEEE 802.11-05/0208r1 Submission March 2005 Charles Cook, QwestSlide 11 TG/Standards that Impact Service Providers
doc.: IEEE 802.11-05/0208r1 Submission March 2005 Charles Cook, QwestSlide 12 Example of Requested Evaluation Points Signal Distance & Drop - Interior Up to 6 walls?
doc.: IEEE 802.11-05/0208r1 Submission March 2005 Charles Cook, QwestSlide 13 What this all nets out to… To meet Broadest Market Potential –Need to meet Service Provider needs, as they… Face the consumer in a high % of deployments Will drive up mass Station deployments through AP deployments –Provide highest consumer satisfaction experience –Plug the holes regarding mobile sessions, including hand-offs between APs and Mesh
doc.: IEEE 802.11-05/0208r1 Submission March 2005 Charles Cook, QwestSlide 14 Will this require a new TGn PAR? No, see excerpts from PAR –12. Scope of Proposed Project: The scope of this project is to define an amendment that shall define standardized modifications to both the 802.11 physical layers (PHY) and the 802.11 Medium Access Control Layer (MAC) so that modes of operation can be enabled that are capable of much higher throughputs, with a maximum throughput of at least 100Mbps, as measured at the MAC data service access point (SAP). –13. Purpose of Proposed Project: The purpose of the project is to improve the 802.11 wireless local area network (LAN) user experience by providing significantly higher throughput for current applications and to enable new applications and market segments.
doc.: IEEE 802.11-05/0208r1 Submission March 2005 Charles Cook, QwestSlide 15 Conclusion Service Providers of all types represent a substantial driver for achieving 802.11n broad market acceptance and success. Meet SPs needs and we achieve Criteria 1 as well as eliminate the need for some future 802.11 effort to plug the holes… Need WNG to assess needs and react SPs position is that TGn must resolve several high priority issues before work completed
