IEEE 802 LAN/MAN Standards Committee

The IEEE 802 LAN/MAN Standards Committee develops and maintains networking standards and recommended practices for local, metropolitan, and other area networks, using an open and accredited process, and advocates them on a global basis. The most widely used standards are for Ethernet, Bridging and Virtual Bridged LANs Wireless LAN, Wireless PAN, Wireless MAN, Wireless Coexistence, Media Independent Handover Services, and Wireless RAN. An individual Working Group provides the focus for each area.


Given the cross-WG interests of the draft 802c PAR  "Local MAC Addressing", considerable discussion on the topic (please see this message)  and given that the 802 EC has to decide on approval of the 802c PAR on Friday of the November 802 session,  a meeting will be held on Monday 3rd November, 2014 (in the vacant “tutorial #3” slot) at 9:30-10:30pm to discuss this topic.  For additional detail and draft agenda, please see the Tutorial Page.
