Re: [802SEC] +++SEC Ballot: Rules change for Wireless PARs+++


Like Tony, I agree in spirit with this but I do not think it will be useful 
as implemented.  It is a fact of life that two radio systems operating in 
the same band will have an effect on each other.  It is even true for a 
large number of equivalent systems operating independently.  15.2 defines a 
means to model the environment and establishes possible coexistence 
mechanisms, but it does not establish what acceptable coexistence is.  What 
we need is a statement of policy, which does not exist yet, that 802 
wireless standards should meet.  15.2 is the means to measure 
it.  Coexistence spans the gambit from fully inter operable to utter chaos 
where one system causes the other to stop working.  Neither extreme is 
practical or reasonable for different classes of application.   An example 
of policy might be that  802 wireless standards be designed so that other 
802 wireless standards are still able it operate even though the 
performance of both systems may be impacted.
