  2. Generic Process of Getting toLetter Ballot • Adoption of PAR and 5 Criteria • Technical Presentations and Discussions • Specify Any Additional Requirements, Comparison Criteria, or Other Documents • Call For Proposals • Select/Combine from Submitted Complete/Partial Proposals to Produce a Draft • Refine Draft • Letter Ballot Donald Eastlake, 3rd, Motorola

  3. Historical 802.11 Project Timelines • Time from PAR approval to first Letter Ballot – average of 6.6 meetings / 13 months • TGe-7, TGf-7, TGg-9, TGh-4, TGi-6 • Time from first Letter Ballot to first Sponsor Ballot – average of 9 meetings / 18 months • TGe-12, TGf-9, TGg-6, TGh-8, TGi-10 • (above data compiled by Bruce Kraemer) Donald Eastlake, 3rd, Motorola

  4. Call for and Submission of Proposals • As voted in Berlin, we have publicly announced that we plan to • issue a Call for Proposals shortly after the January 2005 meeting • with documents to be posted before and presentations made at the July 2005 meeting. Donald Eastlake, 3rd, Motorola

  5. 802.11s Project Timelines • Our PAR approval was 24 June 2004 • At the average pace for these Task Groups, our first Letter Ballot would open in July 2005 and our first Sponsor Ballot in January 2007. • We are now behind the average pace for our first Letter Ballot. • We have announced January 2005 for a call for proposals to be submitted in July 2005. It will be some number of meeting beyond that before we can try for our first 802.11 WG Letter Ballot. • Things will generally happen slower than what we aim for. Donald Eastlake, 3rd, Motorola

  6. Ad Hoc Subgroups andTGs Working Documents • Ad Hoc Subgroups • Have no special status unless TGs votes on them or their output. • Any group of 802.11 members can get together and make submissions. • Within the Policies and Procedures (11-04/510r0), we can do what we want internally: • “Adopted” internal TGs motions/documents can be amended, replaced, or un-adopted. • We can have a “Functional Requirements” document that is as general or specific as we like. Donald Eastlake, 3rd, Motorola

  7. Informal Ad Hoc Subgroups • Functional Requirements and Scope – coordinator Steve Conner w.steven.conner@intel.com • “Functional Requirements & Scope”, 11-04/1174r6 • Comparison Criteria – coordinator Steve Conner <w.steven.conner@intel.com> • “Comparison Criteria”, 11-04/1175r4 • Definitions – coordinator Tricci So <tso@nortelnetworks.com> • “Terms and Definitions for 802.11s”, 11-04/1477r0 • Usage Models – coordinator Steve Conner <w.steven.conner@intel.com> • “Usage Models”, 11-04/662r10 Donald Eastlake, 3rd, Motorola

  8. Informal Ad Hoc Subgroups (cont.) • MAC / Quality of Service / 802.11e – coordinator Lily Yang <lily.l.yang@intel.com> • “Issues for Mesh Media Access Coordination Component in 11s (v03)”, 11-04/968r4 • Security / 802.11i, 802.1ae, 802.1af – coordinators Jasmeet Chhabra <jasmeet.chhabra@intel.com>, Bob Moskowitz <rgm@trusecure.com> • “802.11s Security Concepts”, 11-04/1115r1 • Other • 802.11k, 802.11h /Radio Resources/Metrics – coordinator • WNM, CAPWAP /Management – coordinator Donald Eastlake, 3rd, Motorola

  9. July 2004 Straw Poll:Informal Group Submissions Status • What should be the status of relevant submissions from informal groups if a majority of TGs agrees with the submission? • Strongly included as part of call for proposals – 12 • Adopted as internal working documents – 29 • Included on a TGs recommended reading list – 3 • No special status – 2 Donald Eastlake, 3rd, Motorola

  10. Current Adopted Documents • We have adopted three documents as internal working group documents: • 11-04/969r2: Draft Terms and Definitions for 802.11s • 11-04/662r10: Usage Models • 11-04/970r3: Proposed 802.11 TGs Scope Donald Eastlake, 3rd, Motorola

Donald Eastlake, 3rd, Motorola

  12. Early Draft Call for Proposals • I have put together a suggested draft Call for Proposals: 11-04/1430r1 • It includes • Different Levels of Referenced Documents • Deadlines based on our publicly announced planned schedule Donald Eastlake, 3rd, Motorola

  13. Possibilities Between the November 2004 and January 2005 Meetings • Possibilities for TGs Activity Between November 2004 and January 2005 Meetings to accelerate action : • Multiple Teleconferences (require 10 days notice, cannot be held more often than weekly (P&P clause 3.6.3)) • One Teleconference • Additional official face to face meeting is probably not practical due to holidays and requirement for 30 days notice (P&P clause 3.6.2) Donald Eastlake, 3rd, Motorola
