Re: [802SEC] reminder: IEEE 'next gen network' (aka 5G) -- request for input
To get the ball rolling, here is a paragraph for 802.24.
The 802.24 Vertical Applications TAG
focuses on application categories that use IEEE 802 technology and are of
interest to multiple IEEE 802 WGs. It develops white papers,
presentations and other documents that describe the use of 802 standards
in vertical applications. Currently, the TAG addresses the vertical
application areas of Smart Grid and IoT. Both of these areas have
strong alignment with Next Generation or 5G networks. Advanced Metering
Infrastructure (AMI) is a prime example of massive machine type
communications, with networks connecting millions of smart meters.
Utilities currently operate control networks that provide ultra-reliable
and low latency communications for SCADA and protection. These industries
will have a strong interest in Next Generation networks that will provide
additional options and performance improvements. Standards that enable
flexible deployment and operation on both private infrastructure and
commercial networks are particularly important. IEEE 802 standards
support Smart Grid and IoT with different degrees of optimization for
ultra-reliable and low latency communications and massive machine type
communications. The 802.24 TAG will continue to address these
applications as "next gen network" standards are

Dear EC Members,
Please remember to respond to my request below. At least let me know if
you'll provide input at some point in the near future. Even though
my request was to keep the description to one paragraph, it will be ok if
you feel a few paragraphs are necessary, just strive to be as concise as

Subject: [802SEC] IEEE 'next gen network' (aka 5G) -- request for
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,
http://5g.ieee.org/, 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
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.
