Our July 2005 meeting was held at the Hyatt Regency San Francisco, San Francisco, California, USA. As of this meeting, the 802.11 membership consists of 546 voting members.
These Ballots closed in the weeks preceding this meeting:
- Letter Ballot 75 of P802.11REV-ma-D1.0 passed with 387 approve, 26 disapprove, and 19 abstain, a 93.7% approval. There were 407 ballots cast for a 79.7% return rate.
- The working group approved conducting a recirculation letter ballot on P802.11REV-ma-D3.0, subsequently conducting a comment resolution meeting, and subsequently issuing a new draft 802.11REV-ma D4.0 for a recirculation ballot upon resolution of all comments.
Other WG activities:
The reports for the individual task groups are linked below:
- 802.11e draft 13.0 was approved to be forwarded to RevCom for final approval.
- The working group took a position against the 802.1am PAR, and directed the WG chair to represent that position in the ExCom meeting.
- The Contention Based Protocol Study Group (CBP) voted to withdraw their PAR submission to ExCom at this meeting, due to uncertainty of the FCCs actions. The WG voted to extend the study group, and authorized submission of the PAR for approval at the November plenary (subject to reaffirmation by the working group at that time).
- The WG conditionally approved forwarding 802.11REV-ma to sponsor ballot, contingent on the successful completion of the recirculation ballots D3.0 and D4.0.
