Re: stds-802-16: QoS: Service table

[Notice: It is the policy of 802.16 to treat messages posted here as non-confidential.]

Jim (and others interested in QoS parameters),

I would like to propose that the packet based services use packet error
rates for their error rate criteria.  Bit error rates are typical for
the circuit based services, but packet based services are best specified
either as packet error rates or a combination of packet and bit error
rates.  Depending upon the modulation and coding, packet error rates are
not necessarily correlated with bit error rates and the packet based
services upper layers will respond to packet error rates, not bit error
