IEEE 802.11 Interpretations


The IEEE-SA removed the interpretation process during 2012.  Interpretations related to now superseded 802.11 standards/amendments are referenced here. No new interpretation requests will be accepted by IEEE-SA.

Old description: "Occasionally questions may arise regarding the meaning of portions of standards as they relate to specific applications. When the need for interpretations is brought to the attention of IEEE, the Institute will initiate action to prepare appropriate responses. Since IEEE Standards represent a consensus of all concerned interests, it is important to ensure that any interpretation has also received the concurrence of a balance of interests. For this reason, IEEE and the members of its societies and Standards Coordinating Committees are not able to provide an instant response to interpretation requests except in those cases where the matter has previously received formal consideration. "

Interpretations for current IEEE 802.11 standards are available as follows:
