Dear EC Members,
Paul has delegated the conduct of the EC electronic ballot on the following motion to me.
At the January IEEE 802 meeting there was a discussion on the 5G standardization landscape and in particular a review by Roger Marks on the IMT process (EC-16-10). The
discussion resulted in the creation of a draft scope for an EC standing committee to create a report for the EC to guide IEEE 802. This motion is the formalization of the SC as a type 2 EC subgroup. The creation of a new subgroup requires majority approval
rate, as per section 5.6 of the IEEE 802 LAN/MAN Standards Committee (LMSC) Policies & Procedures.
I am declaring an early close (see below).
Approve the creation of the IEEE 802 5G/IMT-2020 standing committee (per 5.6 2 of the LMSC P&P) with the following scope and organization:
To provide a report on the following items to the EC:
Costs and benefits of creating an IEEE 5G specification
Costs and benefits of providing a proposal for IMT-2020, considering possible models of a proposal:
as a single technology,
as a set of technologies,
or as one or more technologies within a proposal from external bodies (e.g., 3GPP)
During its lifetime, to act as the communication point with other IEEE organizations on this topic.
The committee is chartered for 6 months (i.e., due July 2016 at the 802 plenary) as an EC SC (type 2). Any 802 WG voting member may participate as a voting member of the
Move: Glenn Parsons
