[802SEC] IEEE 'next gen network' (aka 5G) -- request for input

Dear EC Members,
I'm participating in the IEEE 5G initiative as the SA and Computer Society representative. One of the tasks I've volunteered for is to help lead the development of a Standards Roadmap.  Of course, 802 will play a prominent role in the roadmap.  The roadmap is under development and will take some time to coalesce into a draft document that is finished enough to share with you.  When it is ready, I'll be asking you to review it and provide feedback.
In the meantime, an IEEE 5G portal has been cobbled together,, one of the major sections under development is 'Standards' (see Right now the content in the standards section is a placeholder, it just points to a few elements of 802 and ComSoc standards that someone on SA staff identified.  I'd like the each of the 802 working group and tag chairs to draft a paragraph--no more than a few sentences that briefly describes the completed and in process work of the working group that is generally 5G related.
What does '5G related' mean?  I've defined it as follows: 
Industry standards activities (within a ~5 year range initially) that map into three major 'next gen network (aka 5g)' usage scenarios:
a) Enhanced Mobile Broadband,
b) Ultra-reliable and low latency communications,
c) Massive machine type communications.
Please take some time to draft the paragraph (as described above). I will have your group summaries placed in the Standards portion of the IEEE 5G portal.  If you have links to your groups website that you think should be included--please feel free to add them.  Ideally, I'd like to have the draft text by 06JAN2017.
Thank you and Happy New Year all.
