Re: WPAN/ Regulatory update


	Do you have a date and time for the 802 Ad-Hoc Regulatory
meeting at which Julius Knapp would present, assuming he does attend?

I would like to update you on the following issues:

FCC visit to the next meeting.
Julius Knapp has given me a tentative yes for his attendance at the next
IEEE 802 meeting. He will give a tutorial on the way the FCC and the OET
operate. He will also discuss Commission plans to initiate a rule making to
amend the spread spectrum rules.

The ExCom is discussing and voting on a motion to provide the funding. You
can all follow the discussion at the e-mail archive 

My attendance at the March meeting
Because the ITU-R JRG 8A-9B meeting is held simultaneously with the IEEE 802
meeting, my sponsor decided that I have to be at the ITU-R meeting. Peter
Murray is willing to take the chairmanship of the Regulatory ad-hoc.

Position papers to US ITU-R meeting
First of all the IEEE 802.11 motion to send the corrections for the
Recommendation on RLAN characteristics and the questions of the Satellite
sharing for TGh effectively failed. Note that I thought that it passed,
because 2/3 supported. However, the rules explicitly require 3/4 support.

Then, the motion also failed in a IEEE 802.15 e-mail vote.

IEEE 802.16 unfortunately did not discuss the matter at their Ottawa

Regarding the RLAN characteristics document, because of the importance to
get the information through the US delegation into the ITU, Boeing, Intersil
and Agere Systems decided to take the paper as a company contribution. They
did so after having added PBCC as a modulation scheme, a definition for PBCC
and having deleted the OFDM comparison to single carrier modulations.
However, further details about PBCC needs to be brought in. We tried to get
input, but did not get any. fortunately, this is a Rec. that needs
constantly updating,  

US contributions tot he ITU-R JRG 8A-9B meetings
There will be 4 contributions to the JRG 8A-9B meeting:
*	Analysis of potential interference between Spaceborne SAR and 5 GHz
service fixed access in the band 5250-5350 MHz text (JRG Doc 1 rev 5)

*	Wireless high rate RLANs around 5.3 GHz. text (JRG Doc 2 rev 2)

*	suggested parameters for the Fixed Wireless Access in the 5250-5350
MHz band text (JRG Doc 3 rev 2)

*	ITU-R M.1450, "Draft New Recommendation ITU-R M [8A-9B-T4/DD]
Characteristics of Broadband Radio Local Area Networks (RLANs)" text (JRG
Doc 4 rev 1)

You can find them on our website: 

you need the accesscode to the private areas of either 802.11, 802.15 or
802.16 though.
