Clause 0
E CIDs: 1027, 1028, 1035, 1061, 1062, 1100, 1118, 1119, 1160, 1199, 1202, 1203

Comment 1199 says that a regulatory domain may span several countries, but fails to provide an example
from the standard. Proposed Comment Resolution: “In 802.11-2007, Country Code is unique to a single
country – ISO/IEC 3166-1, and regulatory domains use one country at a time.” Propose Reject Comment
1199.

Proposed Resolution:
Accept Comments 1027, 1028, 1035, 1061, 1062, 1100, 1118, 1119, 1160, 1202 and 1203
without discussion.
Reject based on discussion in 07/0674r1: 1199



Clause 3

E CIDs: 1120, 1121, 1122, 1123, 1124, 1125, 1161, 1162, 1163

Discussion:
In 11y/D2.0: Note that submission yyyr0 3-11.14 CID 1034 would change „enabling AP‟ to „control STA‟,
consequently enabling AP‟s definition is removed, and CID 1123 is moot if that suggestion is approved. CID 1163‟s
suggestion is considered in that submission yyyr0.

Proposed Resolution:
Accept Comments 1120, 1121, 1122, 1124, 1125, 1161, and 1162 without discussion.
Accept in Principle based on discussion in 07/0674r1: 1123 and 1163


Clauses 7, 9, 10, 11.9.7

E CIDs: 1017, 1018, 1019, 1029, 1031, 1036, 1037, 1038, 1039, 1040, 1041, 1042, 1063, 1064,

1168, 1169, 1170, 1171, 1172, 1173, 1174, 1200, 1204, 1205, 1208, 1209, 1210, 1211, 1212,

Discussion:
In 11y/D2.0:
Comment 1019 rewords a sentence, however CID 1218 corrects the grammar error. Propose Accept in Principle
CID 1019.
Comment 1128 rewords 7.3.2.49 Altitude definition, where Altitude is a 30-bit number with 22-bit integer part and
8-bit fraction. Propose Accept in Principle CID 1128.
Comment 1165 provides an incomplete reference for „transmission‟, which is specified in both 11.9.7.1 and
11.9.7.2. Propose Accept in Principle CID 1165.
Comment 1200 would rename Dependent Enablement Identifier, but provides no rational for the change. Comment
errorenously says DEI is 4 octets, when it is 2 octets. Propose Reject CID 1200 for lack of reason to change name.
Comment 1204 says that Figure 112z is not drawn consistent with the base standard and asks it be redrawn as two
figures, one for octets, and the second for bit fields. The base standard has many bit field figures, e.g. Figure 20


Submission                                            page 2                    Peter Ecclesine, Cisco Systems

Sequence Control field, and Figure 112z is drawn consistent with the base standard and TGn‟s figures. Propose
Reject CID 1204
Comment 1208 says the font in figures should be consistent, and to change to Times Roman for that font. The base
standard uses Arial for figures, as does D2.0. Propose Accept in Principle CID 1208, as the suggested Remedy does
not agree with the base standard.
Comment 1256 7.3.2.50 notes the “New Regulatory Class” may be unchanged after the channel switch, and asks for
the statement to be rewritten. Propose change 'to which the STA is moving' to 'after the channel switch' in
definitions of both New Regulatory Class and New Channel Number. Propose Accept in Principle CID 1256.
Comment 1257 9.8.4 on the first sentence misstates the text 'on a AirPropagationTime'?, where the text is „based on
aAirPropagationTime‟, a value transferred across the PMD interface to the MAC, and used to calculate SlotTime.
The comment says: Should be 'on an AirPropagationTime'. Propose Reject CID 1257.


Proposed Resolution:
Accept Comments 1017, 1018, 1029, 1031, 1036, 1037, 1038, 1039, 1040, 1041, 1042, 1063, 1064, 1065, 1066,

1174, 1204, 1205, 1209, 1210, 1211, 1212, 1215, 1216, 1217, 1218, 1239, 1240, 1241, 1242, 1243, 1255, 1258 and
1259 without discussion.
Accept in Principle based on discussion in 07/0674: 1019, 1128, 1165, 1208 and 1256.
Reject based on discussion in 07/0674: 1200, 1257



Clause 17

1196, 1197

Discussion:
Comment 1188 Annex D says „dot11LCIDSEImplemented is defined here (and not used in the document),‟ rename
it to dot11DSEImplemented, without a reason for the renaming. Propose Reject CID 1188, as no rational for the
renaming is given, and the variable is used in response to technical comments on Annex J.2. Propose Reject
Comment 1188

Accept Comments 1022, 1023, 1025, 1026, 1048, 1049, 1051, 1052, 1054, 1055, 1056, 1058, 1059, 1073, 1074,
