Many of the IEEE 802.11 teleconferences use "Join Me".   We share a single IEEE-SA supplied account amongst these meetings.   The meeting credentials and local dial-in numbers are shown here.

You can import the calendar as an iCal file, or use the "Add to Google Calendar" at the bottom right of the calendar below. 

Recently Published 802.11 Amendments

TGaq Recognition
 IEEE Std 802.11aj-2018 (China 45GHz and 60GHz), IEEE Std 802.11ak-2018 (General Link) and IEEE Std 802.11aq-2018 (Pre-association Discovery) have been published recently. 

The 802.11 Working Group recognized the contributors to these amendments with an awards ceremony. The photo to the right is of the 802.11aq awardees who were present.

Next Session

The next 802.11 session is March 10-15, 2019 at the Hyatt Regency Vancouver/Fairmont hotels, Vancouver BC, Canada. The (draft) agenda will be available shortly. 

See the Working Group closing report  for the completed January 2019 session and the November 2018 Working Group closing report .

Of particular note, the recently completed simulation and analysis shows that P802.11ax D3.0 satisfies the primary MAC/PHY requirements for the benchmark enhanced Mobile Broadband (eMBB) Indoor Hotspot test environment.

Access Published IEEE 802 and  IEEE 802.11 Standards (free download)

"Click Here" for IEEE 802 Free Standards

The IEEE has made available IEEE 802 standards for free download.  Under this program, a standard may be downloaded for free six months after the initial publication of the standard. All relevant IEEE 802.11 Standard, Amendments, and Recommended Practices are listed.

Recent liaison statements and communications  are available here.

IEEE 802.11 Presentation

The former publicity standing committee (PUB SC) have produced a presentation called "What 802.11 is doing" intended to be used to explain 802.11's current activities to those outside 802.11.  


ACCESS TO 802 DRAFT STANDARDS

Draft standards are available from a number of sources:

  • If you are a voting 802.11 member, go to the members' area and log in using the 802.11 members ID and password supplied to you by the 802.11 officers.  Contact Dorothy Stanley if you have lost this. During an 802.11 session, attendees may access 802.11 draft standards from a local fileserver, regardless of their membership status.
  • If you are an active member of one of the other 802 groups,  you may be able to access the 802.11 members' area using the same credentials used to access your own group.  If this doesn't work,  ask your group's Chair to request access from the 802.11 Chair (Dorothy Stanley).
  • Draft IEEE standards are, from time to time,  made available for purchase using the IEEE store or Techstreet.

IEEE STANDARDS DEVELOPMENT GUIDE

The IEEE-SA has created an easy to use Online Standards Development web site that has a wealth of information that details the whole standards process flow, from creation of the initial PAR, to balloting to final draft, and beyond. It even includes, tutorials, and online forms of the various processes evolved. This site is recommended for all Members and Chairs involved.
