[STDS-802-16] Fwd: [802SEC] FW: Join IEEE 802(R) Network Enhancements Industry Connections Activity

As you may know, we are having a kick off for the IEEE 802 Network Enhancements for the Next Decade Industry Connections (IC) Program in Berlin.


We are looking to identify new opportunities for 802 technologies.  An initial view is that these would focus on new verticals like industrial manufacturing, automotive, or the cable industry….


It’s looking more like the 802.1 chair (i.e., yours truly) will lead this inaugural meeting as a result of the unsuccessful effort in identifying a chair…


In any case, please let me know if you or any of your WG members may have any ideas that you would like to present.

About IEEE 802 Network Enhancements for the Next Decade Industry Connections (IC) Program

The mobile industry is currently pursuing the development of the next generation mobile communication networks fulfilling the requirements for extreme mobile broadband, massive machine-type communication, and ultra-reliable and low latency communications as specified in ITU-R M.2083 for IMT-2020.

IEEE 802 technologies are mainly deployed in communication infrastructures outside of the IMT domain. Therefore, to address emerging network requirements, the IEEE 802 LAN/MAN Standards Committee is launching a new initiative under the IEEE Standards Association (IEEE-SA) Industry Connections Program. This activity will assess emerging requirements for IEEE 802 based communication infrastructures, identify commonalities, gaps, and trends not currently addressed by IEEE 802 standards and projects, and facilitate building industry consensus towards proposals to initiate new standards development efforts. Learn more.

Project activities and deliverables

Participants in this activity may work on the following outputs:

  • A report documenting the findings of the IC activity, with recommendations regarding new standardization topics, documentation of use cases and user needs for those topics, and proposed organizational approaches to ensure effective participation from user communities. It is expected that the first draft of the report documenting the findings of this IC activity will be available in March 2018.

Stakeholders - Who should join

Stakeholders may include but are not limited to:

  • Users and producers of systems and components for networking systems, high performance computing, cloud computing, telecommunications carriers, automotive, intelligent transport systems, eHealth, smart cities, IoT, and industrial applications


Participation – How to join

There will be a kickoff meeting for this Program to be held 11 July 2017 from 19:00 - 21:00 CET (Central European Time) at the IEEE 802® Plenary Meeting in Berlin, Germany. The Industry Connections meeting location is located at Sonnenallee 225 | Room: Estrelsaal B (Lobby). There is no registration fee required to attend this IC meeting.    

For additional information, please contact the Working Group Chair, Glenn Parsons.

Meeting discussions may include:

  • Introductions  
  • Background (the origins of this IC Activity)
  • Project Objectives/Scope 
  • Project Plan – Automotive, Industry Automation, etc. 
  • Participant Expectations 
  • Communications Plan (information sharing, meetings, schedule, etc.) 
  • Actions/Next Steps
