RE: stds-802-16: RE: WLAN/ New Structure of the Coexistence Group

I personally prefers the idea of a separate task group for each working group
(Option 1).  A task group needs to be focused and keeping them separate helps
maintain the focus.  I am active in the TG2 of the 802.16 and the scope is
limited to the broadband access systems as opposed to WLAN and other mostly
indoor applications.

The 802.16 TG2 has not addressed the unlicensed bands yet.  The coexistence task
groups might want to consider an occasional joint meeting to maintain some
uniformity in the way we address coexistence issues and ensure a reasonable
coexistence between services.

This is a very important topic, and I'm glad that you've brought it to the
fore.  I personally believe that #3 and  #2 preserve the spirit of the

To be considered:
1. How will members of different committees be able to participate in this
one, since meetings might be running in parallel.
2. Will this topic be represented in the wireless Interim meetings also?

	Within IEEE 802.15 we have a task group (TG2) to address the issue
of Coexistence
of WPANs and WLANs in the unlicenced band.  Recently there has been a
growing interest in
the issue of Coexistence within IEEE 802.11, with the formation of the 5G
study group.  Also
recently the IEEE 802.16 working group has established the Wireless HUMAN
group to look
at establishing standards for Broadband wireless access in the unlicenced

	As a result of all this activity we are looking for the best
structure to address Coexistence
within the IEEE 802 Wireless working groups.  The purpose of this email is
to start an email discussion
on these reflectors about the various options that we have.  The plan after
that would be to capture
the essence of this discussion and to make a proposal at the Monterey
meeting as to how to structure
the Coexistence work within the Wireless 802 groups.

	Attached is a presentation that Al Petrick and I made at the Joint
802.11 and 802.15 meeting
in Tampa.  This proposal represents one approach.

	The following are the three approaches I have heard mentioned.
Please comment on them by
replying to this email. Please include all three email reflectors so members
of all three wireless working
groups can participate.

1.	Set up three separate coexistence task groups, one in each working

2.	Form a joint Task Group under the three working groups.  This is a
new structure that
	has never be done before.

3.	Form a new working group.  This Wireless 802 Coexistence working
group would address
	all coexistence issues within the unlicenced bands.

	Please send in your comments.
