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: 

o    as a single technology, 

o    as a set of technologies,

o    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 committee.


Move: Glenn Parsons

Second:  James Gilb


Start of ballot: Monday January 25, 2016

Close of ballot: February 4, 2016 11:59PM AOE


Early close: As required in subclause 4.1.2 'Voting rules' of the IEEE 802 LAN/MAN Standards Committee (LMSC) Operations Manual, this is notice that, to ensure the release is provided in a timely manner, this ballot may close early once sufficient responses are received to clearly decide a matter.
