IEEE 802.24 Vertical Applications TAG


IEEE 802.24 Vertical Applications TAG Scope

The IEEE 802.24 Vertical Applications Technical Advisory Group (TAG) focuses on application categories that use IEEE 802 technology and are of interest to multiple IEEE 802 WGs and have been assigned to IEEE 802.24 by the IEEE Executive Committee.

For those application categories, IEEE 802.24:

NOTE: The IEEE 802 technologies are applied to support the vertical applications. IEEE 802.24 determines what makes the horizontal technologies supportive of the applications. IEEE 802.24 also determines what enhancements to the horizontal technologies would improve their ability to support the applications.

Examples of potential vertical application categories are: Smart Grid, Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS), Smart Homes, Smart Cities, eHealth
