March 2004 doc. : IEEE 802. 15 -05 -0097 -00 -001 b Study Group 1 b Closing Report Tom Siep TMS Associates, LLC Chair SG 1 b Submission 2 Tom Siep, TMS Assoicates, LLC

March 2004 doc. : IEEE 802. 15 -05 -0097 -00 -001 b The Issue

March 2004 doc. : IEEE 802. 15 -05 -0097 -00 -001 b The Issue • The IEEE 802. 15 membership has informally indicated that the current relationship between it and the Bluetooth SIG must be changed to be more in line with other WG/SIGs • The Bluetooth SIG has indicated that it will not entertain the same kind of relationship the Wi. Fi has with its counterpart Submission 3 Tom Siep, TMS Assoicates, LLC

March 2004 doc. : IEEE 802. 15 -05 -0097 -00 -001 b Bluetooth SIG

March 2004 doc. : IEEE 802. 15 -05 -0097 -00 -001 b Bluetooth SIG Concerns • The SIG loses control of its own technology, perhaps to competing technologies – The SIG has a unique relationship with the IEEE that currently allows it to maintain this control – ANSWER: Hybrid organization, defined later in this presentation • IPR Pool “Pollution” – IPR Pool guarantees no member will sue another member over IPR maters concerning essential IPR – ANSWER: IEEE involvement does not significantly enhance risk because • Area to be worked is pre-defined by SIG • Other companies are working in Short Distance Wireless that pose a risk to this, independent of where the work goes on • Change in confidentiality agreements – Bylaws of SIG must change to accommodate the new relationship – ANSWER: the additional value the IEEE brings to the quality of the spec make the change worthwhile.

March 2004 doc. : IEEE 802. 15 -05 -0097 -00 -001 b The Cost

March 2004 doc. : IEEE 802. 15 -05 -0097 -00 -001 b The Cost of Failure • For the IEEE – Lose participation of the most successful short distance wireless technology – (More) Bad press for IEEE 802 if/when spilt becomes public – Lose the possibility of other 802. 15 groups using Bluetooth higher layers (profiles) • For the Bluetooth SIG – Lose status of having an international standard (Current standard may be withdrawn) – Lose inclusion in Coexistence Assurance studies if withdrawn (Bluetooth is no longer a mandatory coexistence analysis component) – Lose ready access to other PHYs (such as UWB) – Lose the peer review that IEEE has provided in the past (More than 2000 edits made to Bluetooth Spec as a result of IEEE review) – Bad press for “Bluetooth SIG abandons standardization” Submission 5 Tom Siep, TMS Assoicates, LLC

March 2004 doc. : IEEE 802. 15 -05 -0097 -00 -001 b Proposal to

March 2004 doc. : IEEE 802. 15 -05 -0097 -00 -001 b Proposal to Go Forward: Hybrid Organization • • Formulate 802. 15. 1 b to include an “expert group”, the Bluetooth Core Improvement WG (Formally Radio Improvements Group) 15. 1 b will have meetings – At all Plenary 802 meetings – Ad Hoc meetings primarily in European venues in lieu of Interims • Work items will initiate with internal SIG study groups – Same way SIG currently does work – External visibility not required • When work items are defined PAR process in IEEE 802. 15 begins – All 802. 15. 1 b meetings are open to everyone – No changes is scope is allowed without both PAR and SIG agreement – Both organizations review work of hybrid committee and go through their approval cycles as they currently do • When work is completed on the Draft: – Sponsor Ballot and Bluetooth SIG adoption occur in parallel – Changes required by Sponsor Ballot will be entered as Errata in Bluetooth system • When Standard is complete – Bluetooth SIG retains certification and logo rights – Bluetooth SIG may “pick and choose” portions of Standard to adopt (just like Wi. Fi) – Bluetooth SIG may add or subtract requirements (just like Wi. Fi) Submission 6 Tom Siep, TMS Assoicates, LLC

March 2004 doc. : IEEE 802. 15 -05 -0097 -00 -001 b The Benefits

March 2004 doc. : IEEE 802. 15 -05 -0097 -00 -001 b The Benefits of Success • For the IEEE – Identification with most successful short distance wireless technology – Possibility of other 802. 15 groups using Bluetooth higher layers (profiles) – Coexistence metrics measure more of the real world • For the Bluetooth SIG – Retains status of having an international standard – Benefit from Coexistence Assurance studies by new standards as well as creation of baseline coexistence for their own technology – Potential access to other PHYs, such as UWB Submission 7 Tom Siep, TMS Assoicates, LLC

March 2004 doc. : IEEE 802. 15 -05 -0097 -00 -001 b Next Steps

March 2004 doc. : IEEE 802. 15 -05 -0097 -00 -001 b Next Steps • SG Chair requested to lobby for adoption of proposal • MOTION: 802. 15 authorizes the Chair of SG 1 b (Tom Siep) to contact the Bluetooth SIG to advocate the proposed new method of working together and report back to the WG at the March 05 meeting. • Move: SG 1 b, second: Mike Mc.
