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


ICAID IC17-001-02: IEEE 802 Network Enhancements for the Next Decade

This activity is assessing emerging requirements for IEEE 802-based communication infrastructures, identifying commonalities, gaps, and trends not currently addressed by IEEE 802 standards and projects. It is facilitating industry consensus on topics that that result in proposals to initiate new standards development efforts. The activity was renewed for two years on 2019-03-21, following the original authorization from March 2017 – March 2019 in ICAID IC17-001-01.
