Subject: [802SEC] +++ ECM +++ Approval of 5G/IMT-2020 SC +++ Early
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
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
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
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.
