  1. Closing report 802.18 RR-TAG to Radio Working GroupsMay 2002 meeting Carl R. Stevenson Interim Chair, 802.18 RR-TAG http://ieee802.org/Regulatory/ \\Neptune\RadioReg\2002_May Carl R. Stevenson, Agere Systems

  2. Progress to date at this meeting (1) • Drafted Opposition to the Petition for Reconsideration by the ARRL in ET Docket No. 98-156 (18-02-002d1_IEEE_802_Opp_98-156.doc) • Posted draft to 802.11 and 802.15 servers, PM Tuesday, May 14, for review • Prepared Mid-week report and WG motions seeking approval to file the Opposition with the FCC, subject to SEC approval Carl R. Stevenson, Agere Systems

  3. Progress to date at this meeting (2) • Discussed strategy for drafting comments on anticipated Report and Order from FCC on RF Lighting at 2.4 GHz (major interference potential to 802.11b, 802.15.1, 802.15.3, 802.15.4) • R&O has not been released, so we have no definitive knowledge of its provisions • Indications from FCC OET are that there will be some in-band emissions limits on RF Lighting, but that Part 15 interests may not be completely happy with the permitted levels • Also, there seems to be strong push-back from RF Lighting interests against confining their emissions to the upper part of the band • Only recourse if we don’t like the results is to file a Petition for Reconsideration … however this must be done within 30 days of the publication of the R&O in the Federal Register • Since the R&O is expected “soon” interested parties may well have to file as individual companies or groups of companies (IEEE 802 probably won’t be able to meet the filing deadline if it falls between now and the close of the July meeting) Carl R. Stevenson, Agere Systems

  4. Progress to date at this meeting (3) • Secured approval from both 802.11 and 802.15 of Opposition to the Petition for Reconsideration by the ARRL in ET Docket No. 98-156 (18-02-002d1_IEEE_802_Opp_98-156.doc) • Held joint meetings with TGh,TGg, and WNG SC • Prepared Closing report and WG motions seeking approval to file the Comments with the FCC, subject to SEC approval Carl R. Stevenson, Agere Systems

  5. Progress to date at this meeting (4) • Drafted comments on ET Docket No. 02-98 (NPRM text became available Thursday PM) • Proposes to elevate the Amateur Radio Service to PRIMARY at 2400-2402, and, perhaps more significantly, to add a PRIMARY allocation to the Amateur Satellite Service in the same band. • This could give the ARRL more “traction” in making assertions of (“real” or “potential) interference from 802.11b systems • 802.18 believes comments are warranted, your support would be greatly appreciated • Posted draft to 802.11 and 802.15 servers, PM Thursday, May 16, for review Carl R. Stevenson, Agere Systems


  6. Output documents produced • Opposition to ARRL Petition for Reconsideration in ET Docket 98-156 • Comments in response to NPRM in ET Docket 02-98 Carl R. Stevenson, Agere Systems

Stevenson, Agere Systems
