Subject: Sponsor Ballot Opening, P802.16s
Dear IEEE P802.16s Balloting Group Member:
This e-mail is to advise you of the opening of the IEEE Standards Sponsor Ballot for:
Title: Standard for Air Interface for Broadband Wireless Access Systems Amendment: Fixed and Mobile Wireless Access in Channel Bandwidth up to 1.25 MHz
Scope: This standard specifies the air interface, including the medium access control layer (MAC) and physical layer (PHY), of combined fixed and mobile point-to-multipoint broadband wireless access (BWA) systems providing multiple services. The MAC is structured to support the WirelessMAN-SC, WirelessMAN-OFDM, and WirelessMAN-OFDMA PHY specifications, each suited to a particular operational environment.
***** IMPORTANT *****
This is a New Ballot.
Balloters have many important responsibilities, but we would like to draw your attention to two of these responsibilities:
One of the responsibilities as a balloter is to ensure that the scope of the draft (including the scope statement in the draft, if any) is within the scope of the work authorized by the PAR. An affirmative vote indicates your agreement that the scope of the draft does not exceed the work authorized by the PAR.
(Note: It is acceptable for the scope of the draft to be less than the scope of the work authorized by the PAR.)
Another important responsibility is the obligation to comply with the IEEE-SA Patent Policy [http://standards.ieee.org/about/sasb/patcom/materials.html]. This is pertinent to informing the IEEE (or causing the IEEE to be informed) of the identity of the holders of any potential Essential Patent Claims that may be relevant to this draft. This does not apply if the patent claim is already the subject of an Accepted Letter of Assurance [http://standards.ieee.org/about/sasb/patcom/patents.html] that applies to the draft under consideration.
For sponsor ballots of amendments and corrigenda, please contact your staff liaison if there is a need for the base standard or any approved amendments or corrigenda. Five business days are required to fulfill your request, so requests should be made as early in the ballot process as possible.
The ballot process may include communication among the Sponsor comment resolution group and Sponsor balloting group members regarding the substantive merits and possible resolution of comments. However, no comment resolution member, Sponsor balloting group member, or standards participant shall intimidate or coerce a specific vote from any Sponsor balloting group member. Please contact your staff liaison if you have any concerns.
BALLOT OPENS: 12-Apr-2017
BALLOT CLOSES: 12-May-2017.
No votes and/or comments will be accepted after 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time on the close date. Make sure you review the document, cast your vote, and submit your comments before the closing date/time.
