Slide 1 Volker Jungnickel, Fraunhofer HHI March 2017 doc.: IEEE 802.15-15-0177-01-0000 802.15-15-0248-00-007a Q&A from Bob Grow on 15.11 OWC General Q: The project documents do not give any indication why this project should be done in 802.15. A: Work is already ongoing in 802.15. Experts are in 802.15. Work is to be continued in 802.15. We just restructuring the work already done in 802.15 to continue more efficiently. Q: It gives no indication of distance the optical communications are to address, no indication of the project having similarities to leverage from other 802.15 projects. A: Rephrase as : at distances of 1-200 m. The standard may leverage previous work in 802.15.7m and introduce MIMO, OFDM, relaying, and mechanisms enabling heterogeneous operation with existing RF wireless data communications standards.

A: see first answer PAR Q: 2.1 Title: The title could apply to any 802 standard. In the past, people even discussed doing an optical wireless PHY for 802.3. Though optical is distinctive, there should be more distinctive information in the title, e.g., something about range of the wireless communication PAN. A: Leave as Multi-Gigabit/s Optical Wireless Communications Nikola: If anything changes include Specialty in the title Submissio n Slide 3 Volker Jungnickel, Fraunhofer HHI March 2017 doc.: IEEE 802.15-15-0177-01-0000 802.15-15-0248-00-007a

Comments from Bob Grow on 15.11 OWC (3) Q: 5.1 expected number active on project: The number looks like WG members, not those expected to be active on P802.15.11 draft development and expert review. A: Numbers should be left as they are. They also include people which do not have the opportunity to attend meetings but prepare input presented by active WG members. Q: 5.2 Scope: The range of communication should be specified in the scope. The purpose describes industrial applications as the driving application, yet requirements of automation islands are very different from communication across a factory floor that can be a range in kilometers. A: Rephrase the Scope as and 10 Gbit/s at typical distances between 1-200 m. The range in kilometers is put in question, several 100 m should be the max. The factory floor will be covered by multiple networked OWC links.

Without reach information, are the stakeholders the manufacturers of the manufacturing equipment used to make aircraft and other transportation devices, or is the industry simply the users of the equipment that includes the proposed optical communication capabilities? A: Further clarification of the range has been given that should clarify the stakeholders. Q: 6.1, b) registration activity: If the standard is expected to specify the use of OUI, CID EUI-48 or EUI-64, it does have registration activity. A: Bob H. will provide an answer.

A: Rephrase in CSD as control of mobile robots in a more flexible manufacturing cell or at an assembly line for personalized products where fixed connections will be replaced by wireless in the future,

Q: Though less important, what relevance the speed of a train has for internal communications is not clear. A: Remove high-speed in front of trains Submissio n Slide 6 Volker Jungnickel, Fraunhofer HHI March 2017 doc.: IEEE 802.15-15-0177-01-0000 802.15-15-0248-00-007a Comments from Bob Grow on 15.11 OWC (6) Q: 1.2.3 Distinct Identity: What is the phrase in transparent media supposed to mean? Wouldn't the non-fiber excluded by 1.2.1, b) be transparent? If the requirement is to be only free space, line of sight, then the airplane environment would be very difficult to satisfy without reflective (i.e., non-transparent) transmission. A: Please replace by With the exception of 802.15.7, this project is distinguishable from all other IEEE 802 standards due to the fact it utilizes optical wireless communications (OWC) instead of RF.

Within this project's scope, please provide a specific definition of "mobility" (or reference a well known more specific definition). A: Add The standard includes adaptation to varying channel conditions and maintaining connectivity during mobility when associated to a coordinator or moving between coordinators.. Q: b) 5.2 Scope: what is the rationale for an estimate of 80 participants? It is optimistic, please try to be realistic. A: Numbers should be left as they are. They also include people which do not have the opportunity to attend meetings but prepare input presented by active WG members. Q: c) 5.2 Scope: please specify what "heterogeneous operation" means A: The term herterogeneous networking is commonly known in mobile communications. If still an issue, please replace by hybrid and aggregated networking in parallel with existing RF Submissio n Slide 8

Q: e) 5.2 Scope: please consider adding a bit error rate objective for the above channel condition A: Rephrase as data rates between 1 Mbit/s and 10 Gbit/s at typical distances of 1-200 m at negligible error rate under both unobstructed and obstructed line-of-sight conditions. Q: f) 5.4 Purpose: The purpose reads more like the description of a the applications of network product family that embodies interfaces that conform to the (eventual) 802.15.11 standard than the purpose of the the technical specifications the standard defines. This text is good, but reads like it belongs in 5.5 Need, not 5.4 Purpose. Please consider reworking the purpose along the lines of something like this: The purpose of the standard is to define free space optical interface specifications to establish high data rate transfer among end points.

What research have you done to identify similar standards activities within the IEEE or external to the IEEE? A: There are two other activities ITU-T G.vlc: ITU-T defines a new recommendation for visible light communications (i.e. no IR and UV) and is currently in a process to align its objectives according work done previously in IEEE 802.15.7m. Vice versa, SG MG OWC has a PHY mode derived from ITU-T (G.hn), where it adds specific features to address the needs of OWC in its specialtly markets. IEEE 802.11 TIG LC: Main differentiation is that SG MG OWC continues work already done in 802.15.7m in a new framework and targets the needs of specialty markets while LC TIG will also address mass mareket needs with additional cost and energy constraints not considered in SG MG OWC. Q: h) 4.2 Sponsor Ballot by March 2018 seems unrealistically optimistic for a new standard with this scope, please explain. A: Was taken over from 802.15.7m. Work is progressed already. This is not a fresh TG but a continuation at an intermediate stage in a new structure intended to accelerate the work.. .. Submissio n

Propose 802.15.13. A: Same as suggested by 802.15 SG MG OWC. Q:Title why the /s at the end of Gigabit? Strictly speaking Multi-Gigabit is a size parameter rather than a speed rate. The /s may have meant per second but consider replacing /s and spell out the per second. Suggested title change to Multi-Gigabit per second Optical Wireless Communication A: Fine. Q: 5.2 Is the scope an overlap with the existing 802.15.7 standard? The use of the word Optical seems to confuse this standard with the previous standard. 7.1 include description of differences to similar project 802.15.7 A: Include: Going beyond IEEE std 802.15.7, this standard is capable of Submissio n Slide 11

A: Go through CSD and change this, accordingly. Q: 1.2.3 Distinct Identity, 1. Consider including some of this to the need statement of the PAR to show the need for the project. 2. Typo mutli should be multi 3. Starting the statement with With the exception seems an odd way to start a statement of Distinct Identity. Suggest deleting the phrase. 4.

Volker Jungnickel, Fraunhofer HHI March 2017 doc.: IEEE 802.15-15-0177-01-0000 802.15-15-0248-00-007a Proposed Changes in PAR and CSD Title: Multi-Gigabit/s Optical Wireless Communications Scope: This standard defines a Physical (PHY) and Media Access Control (MAC) layer using light wavelengths from 10,000 nm to 190 nm for optical wireless communications instead of using RF. The standard is capable of delivering data rates between 1 Mbit/s and 10 Gbit/s at typical distances of 1-200 m. It is designed for point to point and point to multi point communications in both non-coordinated and coordinated topologies. For coordinated topologies, there may be one or more coordinators with the possibility of a global controller. The standard includes adaptation to varying channel conditions and maintaining connectivity during mobility. The standard adheres to applicable eye safety regulations. The standard may leverage previous work in 802.15.7m and introduce MIMO, OFDM, relaying, and mechanisms enabling heterogeneous operation with existing RF wireless data communications standards.

This standard specifically addresses these needs. In particular, optical wireless based solutions to this problem address a significant opportunity, extending to billions of existing industrial devices, to provide secure, non RF based communications between industrial devices and/or between industrial devices and fixed infrastructure on a one to one, or one to many or many to one basis at acceptable data rates. Potential applications include the control of mobile robots in a more flexible manufacturing cell or at an assembly line for personalized products where fixed connections will be replaced by wireless in the future, automated guided vehicles systems, small cell backhaul, network

access in airplanes and trains, security monitoring in petrochemical plants, secure communications in nuclear facilities and hospitals, and many more. There is also a similar emerging need in commercial/business settings, especially in environments requiring high data rates and high levels of security. Stakeholders: Submissio n Industrial infrastructure and devices manufactures, plant engineering and construction, mobile robot vendors, aircraft and transportation manufactures, medical equipment manufacturers, lighting manufacturers, silicon providers, networking equipment manufacturers, and academic researchers Slide 14 Volker Jungnickel, Fraunhofer HHI
