802.16 Media Accces Control Task Group
Submission Deadline: 29 October 1999

The Media Accces Control (MAC) Task Group of the IEEE 802.16 Working Group on Broadband Wireless Access is preparing to define the MAC protocols for a broadband wireless access network specification. The specification will be developed in accordance with the "Development Plan for the 802.16.1 Air Interface Standard" (Document IEEE 802.16-99/05 <http://grouper.ieee.org/groups/802/16/docs/99/80216-99_05.pdf>). As that document details, the specification will be based on submitted contributions, with increasing detail required as the process progresses. Mergers and improvements will be encouraged, with final selection scheduled for June 2000.

The MAC Task Group invites the submission of initial contributions representing proposed MAC solutions. Contributors will be granted agenda time during 802.16 Working Group Session #4 (8-11 November 1999 in Kauai, Hawaii, USA) to present and discuss the merits of their proposals. Only contributors to Session #4 will be eligible for invitation to submit a contribution to Session #5.
