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 would reside at the edge-cloud of the 5GC. The WG has approved the final draft for ballot.
