stds-802-16: Proposed PAR: High-Rate Version of 802.11b
As described below, 802.11 has submitted a new PAR to extend the
802.11b PHY so as to increase the data rate to greater than 20 Mbit/s
(from the current limit of 11 Mbit/s). It looks to me like a nice
project and a well-done document. The 802 ExCom will be asked for its
approval on July 13.
The PAR is not easily available from the 802.11 web site, but I have
posted it at our web site
If you have comments, please let me know. We are obliged to
communicate them to 802.11 as soon as possible, with a deadline of
5:00 p.m. on Tuesday, July 11.
This is the only new PAR on the 802 agenda for this meeting.
>Dear 802 SEC members,
>On behalf of Stuart Kerry, the 802.11 chairperson, I would like to
>notify you under the 30 day rule of the intent of the 802.11 WG to
>submit a new PAR and 5 Criteria to the SEC at the July 2000 802
>The PAR and 5 Criteria were generated by the Study Group for Higher
>Rate 802.11b (HRb SG) at the May 2000 meeting of the 802.11 WG. The
>HRb SG investigated technical extensions to the current 2.4GHz
>802.11 standard that are interoperable with 802.11b and that can
>lead to operation at data rates greater than 20Mbps.
>The presentation of the PAR and 5 Criteria has already been added to
>the July 2000 agenda of the 802 Executive Committee.
>Please find attached the PAR and 5 Criteria as they were unanimously
>approved by the IEEE 802.11 Working Group.
>If you have any questions regarding this project request, please do
>not hesitate to contact Stuart Kerry or myself.
>Matthew B. Shoemake
>HRb SG Chairperson
