Re: [802.21] IEEE 802.21 - DVB Integration Presentation

Dear Daniel,

many thanks for your comments. Your input is very valuable to us and we 
also welcome any contribution from your side in order to be able to 
accomplish the integration successfully.

Hereby, I also invite other colleagues from 802.21 to actively share 
their ideas with us so that we have a productive presentation in January.

Best Regards
