                               History
 • SG approved March 2001
       – Presentations at Plenary and Interims
       – Proposed organization developed at Portland
         plenary
             • Rules change for SC was recommended
             • September meeting was cancelled
       – Study group extension motion missed in Austin
             • Extenuating circumstances
 • Meeting as BoF at Dallas interim and St.
   Louis plenary
       – LMSC rule change not desired – TAG preferred
 • Attendance has consistently shown strong
   interest (40+ attendees at each BoF)

               Goals of COEX TAG
• A committee that reviews and makes
  coexistence recommendations to ExCom on
  current or proposed PARs and WG draft
  standards within the established wireless
  WGs of the IEEE802 standards body
     – The functional charter of this new group is to
       address the wireless coexistence issues across all
       wireless WGs
     – Chartered to write guidelines for addressing
       coexistence of draft standards prior to sponsor
       ballot

             Functional Charter Discussion
 • First order of business: Define Coexistence and the
   Recommended Procedures for establishing whether a draft has
   adequately addressed coexistence
       – For example, a WG should develop a set of usage models and
         demonstrate through analysis or simulation the impact of the
         proposed standard on other approved IEEE wireless standards
 • This group is responsible for reviewing all unlicensed wireless
   proposed PARs
       – The group generates a report to ExCom relative to coexistence with
         published wireless standards and those in the development
         process
       – This report shall be used by ExCom as a technical expert opinion
         for evaluating the proposed PAR
 • This group is responsible for generating a final conformance
   report of the Draft Standard prior to Sponsor Ballot
       – This report will be presented to the sponsoring WG and ExCom and
         a copy will be sent to the Chairs of all other wireless WGs within
         IEEE802
       – Evaluates the Draft Standard against the Recommended
         Procedures for Coexistence

       802 COEX Proposed Procedures
 • Membership & Voting
       – Attendance at the 802 COEX Tag meetings is open to registered
         attendees
       – WG chairs are members ex officio
       – WG chairs designate official liaisons (3)
       – Attendees: attendance at first meeting grants membership
       – TAG follows WG rules after that
       – Attendance at 802 COEX TAG meetings will count towards
         attendance at the individual’s primary WG
             • WG chairs would have to agree to this
 • Ratification of guidelines
       – A guideline requires a 75% approval vote by the members of the
         802 COEX TAG as outlined above
       – The guideline is then presented to ExCom and the appropriate
         wireless WG(s)
             • Minority opinion summary would be included
