Dear EC,

During the November plenary 802.11 provided drafts of two press releases approved by the 802.11 WG and associated with projects moving into publication.


The IEEE 802.11ac (Very High Throughput in the 5GHz band) standard was published on December 18, 2013 and the approved press release went out January 7, 2014 coinciding the opening of the  Consumer Electronics Show (CES)  in Las Vegas.


The second of the two projects is 802.11af (WLAN operation in TV White Spaces) which is due for publication within 30 days.


The attached press release has gone through further refinement by IEEE PR and Interproser and is now ready for approval.

decisions may be made using electronic balloting. Provision shall be made for the IEEE 802

those who are not members of the Sponsor shall be considered. Commenters who are not

members of the Sponsor are urged to seek a Voting Member of the Sponsor (normally their WG

or TAG Chair) to include the viewpoint of the commenter in their vote.

Chair), shall determine the duration of the ballot, issue the ballot by e-mail and tally the votes

after the ballot is closed. Sponsor Voting Members shall return their vote and comments by


The minimum duration of an electronic ballot shall be 10 days1. For urgent matters once

sufficient response is received to clearly decide a matter, the ballot may be closed early. This

allows a decision to be reach in less than 10 days. Ballots where the possibility of an early close

exists must be clearly marked accordingly. Otherwise, the tally of votes shall not be made until at

least 24 hours after the close of the ballot to allow time for delivery of the e-mail votes.
