IEEE802 plenary had started at 8am morning.I had two of TGai slot today, and it absolutely got good process.We made all of comment resolutions for the comments which were received in the latest letter of ballot.Definitely I can expect to move forward with the next step during this week.
Then I cancelled PM2 session of TGai today, but WG chair reported me that 21 attendances had recorded on the TGai PM2 by web attendance tool.I know that at least one of those attendance is recorded by miss operation.Because it's me.(I attended TGah on PM2 and clicked the TGah but....)
After regular session, we had two interesting tutorials in the evening.
First topic "802.11 as a component" is proposed by the WG chair. This is a proposal to re-consider the architecture of 802.11 and make it more modularize.This is a good concept to improve the availability of IEEE802.11 for the future requirement.
I think there are two of approach, one way is to create some new mechanism to control and manage the 802.11 by upper layer system, and the another one is to simplify the existing 802.11 architecture and separate LLC and PHY.
One of the problem of 802.11 standard is highly binding between LLC and PHY.This is the problem that is never solved like the issue of Locator&ID separation to hold the TCP/IP.
2nd topic of the tutorial was lecturing of IPR policy by PatCom.This is one of the hot topics especially in the 802.11 today.PatCom just only introduced IPR and we did not have any discussion about this topic tonight.
The one-sided introduction may seem to be not enough in fairness, however it is good to keep the neutrality of PatCom.Because PatCom does not focus on only specific WG as well as 802.11, all of related discussion should be open to every WG.
Today I attended all of slots that include two tutorial from 8:00am to 9:00pm.Finally I shared dinner after night tutorial session and got a good night cap with freiends.
