REPORT OF THE JANUARY 2002 MEETING OF IEEE 802.11:
Our January 2002 meeting was held at the Wyndham
Anatole, Dallas, Texas USA. About 261 people were present at the
opening session, with 65 first time participants.
The reports for the individual task groups are linked below.
The officers and working group chairs for 802.11 will be up for re-election
at the March Plenary.
Upcoming Interim meeting locations were announced:
May 2002 - Sydney, Australia, at the Wentworth Rydges Hotel
September 2002 - Monterey, California, at the Hyatt Regency Monterey
Updates to the Working Group Rules document 01/331r2 have been posted.
A corrigendum on the 802.11 standard was proposed. Known problems need
to be addressed, as well as combining 802.11 a, b, c, d, and b-cor1 into
a single document. This proposal was made by Jon Rosdahl. More details
are in document 01/340r1.
Task Group I brought a letter to IETF to the working group. (document 02/040).
The letter informs the IETF of the needs of 802.11 TGi regarding specifications
of EAP keying and authentication methods and RADIUS keying attributes.
Task Group F began a 40 day working group letter ballot to forward 802.11f-D3
to Sponsor Ballot (LB32). The WG motion passed 75:0:2.
Task Group G brought forward a motion to conduct a working group letter
ballot on 802.11g Draft 2.1. The Task Group passed the motion to send the
draft to letter ballot by a vote of 44:0:1. The working group was not able
to vote on the motion because the meeting was prematurely adjourned by
a call for quorum. The interim meeting had been specifically empowered
to send a TGg draft to letter ballot at the November Plenary. After the
meeting, the WG chair and vice chairs met and decided to re-confirm the
working group's support for a TGg letter ballot with a 5 day email ballot
(LB31) running from January 25 - 30, 2002. This confirmation ballot passed
145:31:19. Based on that result, a 40 day letter ballot (LB33) to forward
draft 2.1 of 802.11g to Sponsor Ballot began on January 31, 2002.
The next meeting of 802.11 will take place at the Hyatt Regency St.
Louis, MO, USA, the week of March 10st-15th, 2002. See
802.11 Meeting Plan for details.
