REPORT OF THE NOVEMBER 2001 MEETING OF IEEE 802.11:
Our November 2001 meeting was held at the Hyatt
Regency Town Lake, Austin, Texas USA. About 274 people were present
at the opening session.
The reports for the individual task groups are linked below.
802.11b-cor1 has been approved by RevCom and is now in print.
Upcoming Interim meeting locations were announced:
January 2002 - Dallas, Texas, at the Wyndham Anatole Hotel
May 2002 - Sydney, Australia, at the Wentworth Rydges Hotel
September 2002 - Monterey, California, at the Hyatt Regency Monterey
Presentations were given on topics with the intent of proposing new
study groups. The chair indicated that there are currently more active
Task Groups than we are able to accommodate with the meeting time and space
available. Some of this work will be taken up on an ad-hoc basis.
A motion was made to rescind the PAR of Task Group G during the
Wednesday session. It was withdrawn on Friday.
The 5Ghz Study Group's PAR expired with this meeting, and it will
not continue. The functions of the 5GSG will transition into a new "Wireless
LAN Next Generation Standing Committee."
A motion was passed to send 802.11e Draft 2.0 to letter ballot.
Motions were passed to schedule joint sessions of TGe+TGi and TGe+TGh at
future meetings of 802.11
Motions were passed to empower the Task Groups to conduct business, resolve
comments, and issue drafts to letter ballots at the January interim.
Motions were passed to ask for extensions of the PARs for 802.11e and 802.11f.
(At the SEC meeting, it was determined that the PARs still had two years
remaining, so extension was unnecessary).
The radio regulatory group brought forward several motions for approval
by 802.11 which requested actions by the SEC. They were passed.
The next meeting of 802.11 will take place at the Wyndham Anatole, Dallas,
TX, USA, the week of January 21st-25th, 2002. See
802.11 Meeting Plan for details.
