Initiating Motion (2021-07-22):

For Nendica to initiate a Study Item on Evolved Link Layer Architecture (ELLA), with the goal of producing, by the November 802 Plenary, an informal report documenting:

  • Summary of aspects missing from current IEEE 802 Architecture documentation
  • Potential benefits enabled by additional architectural details
  • Impact of new and evolving technologies on architecture
  • Architectural optimization in specific network environments
  • Possible standardization recommendations

IEEE Std 802 Revision PAR Development

802.1 authorizes Nendica to generate a PAR and, if appropriate, CSD for pre-circulation to the March IEEE 802 Plenary Session for a revision to IEEE Std 802, taking into account information from the 802.1 Technical Plenary

  • Motion approved by IEEE 802.1 WG, 2021-11-16
