[802SEC] Announcement of 5G/IMT-2020 Standing Committee Chair appointment

Dear EC members,
Now that the below EC motion passed, I appoint Glenn Parsons to be its Chair per 5.6 Other Subgroups in the 802 P&P. The scope and duties of the group are as defined below as a Type 2 802 Executive Committee subgroup.
I spoke to Glenn a short while ago, he agreed to take on the role and give the SC the priority it needs to achieve its objective in a relatively short period of time.   I've asked Glenn to keep the broader 'cross 802' view in mind by inviting input from all 802 participants and interested parties, while acknowledging most of the drive for this activity is from the 802.11 WG at this time.
To that end, he will endeavor to set up meeting times at the upcoming plenary session that minimize overlap with other meetings.  At the moment a Monday evening tutorial slot is a good candidate, as we don't have any tutorials scheduled at this time.  Tuesday evening will probably be utilized as well.

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

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.
