Introduction to IEEE 1932.1 WG

Standard Title: Standard for Licensed/Unlicensed Spectrum Interoperability in Wireless Mobile Networks.

Standard Scope: This standard defines a mechanism for communications among entities operating in licensed and unlicensed spectrum. The mechanism includes interoperation among MAC/PHY protocols designed for unlicensed and licensed spectrum operations and a controller for coordination among communicating entities.

Need for this Standard:  This standard is needed to enable interoperability among devices designed for licensed and unlicensed frequency spectrum, including WiFi and LTE devices, which currently there is no such mechanisms.

Approach: We are developing new virtual controller and mechanism to steer the traffic between licensed and unlicensed interfaces. This new controller will be located at the main serving access point. We are now working on developing the final draft for PAR.
