  1. 802.11 WG Assigned Numbers Authority Duncan Kitchin Intel Corporation Duncan Kitchin, Intel

  2. Problem Statement • Several sets of ID numbers or numbered resources are used in 802.11 • element IDs • capbility information field bits • management action frame action codes • No WG-wide mechanism for assigning numbers • Several instances of collisions • TGi/TGe element ID collisions • 802.15.2/802.11d element ID collisions Duncan Kitchin, Intel

  3. Proposed Solution • Create an assigned numbers authority, 802.11WG ANA • Mechanism for requesting numbers from a central resource • Central repository of assigned numbers • Appeals mechanism • Mechanism for adding a new resource Duncan Kitchin, Intel

  4. 802.11WG ANA • Chair will nominate a member of the WG to be the ANA • Document will be maintained and made available on the website Duncan Kitchin, Intel

  5. Request Procedure • Request must be made by a TG or the WG, by way of a motion to request • Outside body such as 802.15.2 would make a request by asking the WG chair to sponsor the motion to request • Request may ask for a specific number, but this will not necessarily be honored by the ANA Duncan Kitchin, Intel

  6. Request Procedure (Cont) • Request submitted to the ANA by email, cc WG chair • Response, indicating assigned number, to be sent to the WG reflector by the ANA • Last item of any resource will never be assigned – always automatically designated “escape bit/number” • ANA is responsible for bringing exhaustion of any resource to the attention of the immediately following WG plenary session Duncan Kitchin, Intel

  7. Appeals Procedure • An appeal may be made asking an assigned number to be revoked or modified • An appeal must be made promptly • An appeal to ANA assignment must be made by the end of the WG plenary or interim meeting that started immediately following the grant of the request Duncan Kitchin, Intel

  8. Adding Resources • Initial assigned resources • element IDs • capability field bits • management action frame action codes • Additional resources may be added by a motion in the WG Duncan Kitchin, Intel

  9. Motion • Instruct the chair to nominate an assigned numbers authority and adopt the procedures outlined in document 11-02/380r0 Duncan Kitchin, Intel
