doc.: IEEE 802.15-00/122r1 Submission May 2000 Ian Gifford, M/A-COM, Inc.Slide 1 Project: IEEE 802.15 Working Group for Wireless Personal Area Networks (WPANs) Submission Title: [Bluetooth Pocket Guide Report] Date Submitted: [8May00] Source: [Ian Gifford] Company [M/A-COM, Inc.] Address [1011 Pawtucket Boulevard Lowell, MA USA 01853-3295] Voice:[+1 978 442 4650], FAX: [+1 978 442 5442], E-Mail:[firstname.lastname@example.org] Re: [-99/031r4, -00/057r0, etc.; this doc was –00/031r0 for awhile now it is –00/102r0] Abstract:[The IEEE Pocket Guide will complement the Bluetooth Specifications and provide the Bluetooth Community with another communication device to promote their technology. The IEEE earns their revenue from publishing. This will be a Bluetooth “Protocol Stack” Pocket Guide not a MAC/PHY Pocket Guide.] Purpose:[The purpose of the Bluetooth Pocket Guide Report is to advise the MC as to the progress of the IEEE Standards Publishing Programs with the Bluetooth SIGs Pocket Guide.] Notice:This document has been prepared to assist the IEEE 802.15. It is offered as a basis for discussion and is not binding on the contributing individual(s) or organization(s). The material in this document is subject to change in form and content after further study. The contributor(s) reserve(s) the right to add, amend or withdraw material contained herein. Release:The contributor acknowledges and accepts that this contribution becomes the property of IEEE and may be made publicly available by 802.15.

doc.: IEEE 802.15-00/122r1 Submission May 2000 Ian Gifford, M/A-COM, Inc.Slide 3 Summary The IEEE has been granted a limited, non-exclusive, non- transferable license from Bluetooth™ SIG to adopt or adapt and copy a portion of the Bluetooth™ Specification Version 1.0 Foundation to be used as base material in the IEEE Standards Project P802.15.1 The IEEE will publish the 802.15.1 Std in early 2001 The IEEE wants to publish additional collateral in support of the 802.15.1 Std –IEEE 802.15.1 Designer’s Companion –IEEE Bluetooth™ Pocket Guides The Bluetooth™ SIG is working with the IEEE Standards Publishing Programs to publish a Pocket Guide based on the Bluetooth™ Version 1.0 Foundation Core & Profiles Specification for the Fall 2000. It will be ~150pg. There will be more Pocket Guides.
doc.: IEEE 802.15-00/122r1 Submission May 2000 Ian Gifford, M/A-COM, Inc.Slide 4 Bluetooth Specifications 1522 Pages IEEE Standard 617 (D0.7) Pages Core Specification Pgs. 1082 Profiles Specification Pgs. 440 802.15.1 Standard Pgs. 617 (D0.7) These documents are very detailed and offer an unparalleled source of information on the Bluetooth Technology. However, additional collateral help with technology adoption.

More Complexity More Pages Less Complexity Less Pages Designer’s Companion? Pocket Guides Designer’s Companion: MAC & PHY Layer 802.15.1 The collateral that will help with technology adoption could take the form of Pocket Guides Which are 80-120 page books that complement the Specification.
