Session 2 (Joint session with 802.19)
Chairman Rick Roberts called the session to order at 8:05 a.m. and gave instructions for SG3a attendees to sign the separate attendance book. 802.19 chairman Jim Lansford gave some announcements for the coexistence group.
Roberto Aiello and Naiel Askar of General Atomics gave a presentation on analysis of the interference effects of 802.11a on UWB systems (document 02/441r1) that proposes signal-to-interference ratio margin as an interference metric and calculates values for various scenarios.
Matt Welborn of XtremeSpectrum gave a presentation on potential UWB interference to/from licensed and unlicensed radio systems (document 02/467), including communications in the 5 GHz UNII (Unlicensed National Information Infrastructure) bands such as 802.11a WLANs.
Jim Lansford reviewed some of the aspects of the new 802.19 group’s work in relation to other coexistence efforts. He raised the possibility that “maintenance PARs” may at some point be permitted in order to address coexistence issues having to do with existing standards. Also, he said that 802.19’s efforts should prevent misunderstandings among different Working Groups (WGs) by promoting dialog during the standards development process.
Rick Roberts reviewed the schedule for the remainder of the day.
The session was concluded at 10:00 a.m.
