IEEE P802.11 - Radio Resource Measurement Study Group  - UPDATE:

This Study Group was formed to evaluate the inclusion of "hooks" in a MAC MIB to provide PHY and MAC measurements for the use of external (above the MAC) network management. The tentative scope of the study group is:


December 4th Teleconference Information

The following IEEE 802.11k Radio Resource Measurement (RRM) teleconferences are next in the series of teleconferences in preparation for the Ft Lauderdale meeting.
