Nendica: IEEE 802 “Network Enhancements for the Next Decade” Industry Connections Activity


ICAID IC17-001-04: IEEE 802 Network Enhancements for the Next Decade

This activity documents emerging requirements and directions for IEEE 802 networks, identifying commonalities, gaps, and trends not currently addressed by IEEE 802 standards and projects, and facilitate industry consensus towards proposals to initiate new standards development efforts. Following the original authorization from March 2017 – March 2019 in ICAID IC17-001-01 and the renewal to March 2021 (extended to September 2021) in ICAID IC17-001-02, the activity was renewed to September 2023 on 2021-09-20 in ICAID IC17-001-03 and to September 2025 on 2023-09-21 in ICAID IC17-001-04. The ICAID will auto-renew binannualy thereafter without further action from within IEEE 802 to modify or terminate it.
