802.11 Commentary Series Launches

802.11 Commentary Series Launches

By CWNP On 06/12/2012 - 9 Comments

The first video in the new 802.11 Commentary series is live on YouTube. We will be adding to this series each week until we have worked out way through the entire 802.11-2012 standard roll-up.

This first video covers Standards Terminology and Processes and provides a solid foundation for everything we will learn as we explore the standard together.
The topics covered include:
  • IEEE Hierarchy
  • Standards Development Process
  • Standards Lifecycle
  • Important Terms
  • A Jet Tour of the Documents
You can view it here on CWNP's YouTube channel,?http://ow.ly/bxkJD, or below.

Great catch on the slip of tongue. Bluetooth was indeed integrated within 802.15.1, but it has not been updated within 802.15 to reflect the Bluetooth changes. I should have clarified that. Thanks. The video is repaired.

802.15 is NOT the standard for Bluetooth. Bluetooth 1.0 was brought into 802 and documented here. Bluetooth development has continued outside of IEEE standard work. 802.15's principle technology is 802.15.4 which is the PHY/MAC underpinnings of IETF 6lowpan and the Zigbee Alliance sensor standard. So it is often referred to as 'the Zigbee standard'. Note that unlike WiFi Alliance and 802.11, there are other 'higher layers', like ZWave, that make use of 802.15.4.

Wlanman, count on it. We'll make sure it's available in both places.

Tom,
I work with the Standards on an almost daily basis, and trying to get Managers to understand their ins and outs can be trying.
Next time, I'll send them here first.
I especially liked the fact that you produced such a high quality & low bandwidth presentation that is available here on the CWNP site.

Please keep it that way as my employer still blocks YouTube, and will be for the forseeable future.

Nice work Tom! What a great idea. When I started reading the spec, this would have been massively helpful. Thanks for sharing!

I literally just came out of the testing centre having taken the CWDP exam. The certification process opened my mind to different techniques and solutions. This knowledge can only broaden your perspective. Great job, CWNP, you have a great thing going on here.

I want to commend you and all at CWNP for having a great organization. You really 'raise the bar' on knowing Wi-Fi well. I have learned a ton of information that is helping my job experience and personal career goals, because of my CWAP/CWDP/CWSP studies. Kudos to all at CWNP.
