I vote approve.
However, the note explaining the reason for early close seems to have been copied from a press release, “, to ensure the release is provided in a timely manner,” without modifying it to fit the motion. I assume the reason for early close is to permit the forming of the SC so it can commence work.
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.
