[802SEC] 802.15.4t PAR and CSD for consideration in November

Greetings all--

In compliance with the 30 day rule, you will find attached a PAR and CSD for a high(er) data rate amendment to IEEE Std. 802.15.4 for consideration and approval at the November Plenary.

When the original 15.4 standard was published in 2003, the performance of embedded microcomputers and other sources and sinks of data was such that the 250 kb/s raw data rate of its 2450 MHz O-QPSK PHY was considered to be the highest rate practically attainable as well as more than sufficient to support typical monitoring and control traffic and meta data in what we now call the Internet of Things (IoT).

In today's world, however, there is growing need for higher data rates while, at the same time, supporting backward compatibility and continuing to reduce the energy consumption of 15.4 devices even further. This amendment is designed to do that with a target data rate of 2Mbps. Achieving that objective will help 15.4 maintain its leadership position.

The changes to 5.2.a (scope of Standard) and 5.4 (Purpose), that appear in this PAR, reflect the scope and purpose contained in the nearly complete15.4 Revision.

Please let me know if you have any comments or questions.
