IEEE 802.16 Task Group C (Conformance)

IEEE 802.16's Task Group C (TGC) has developed a series of conformance standards, per ISO/IEC Standard 9646-7 (1995) and ITU-T X.296, in support of the the air interface specified in IEEE Standard 802.16. The standards/projects include:
  1. Part 1 (IEEE Std 802.16/Conformance01): Protocol Implementation Conformance Statements (PICS) proforma, 10-66 GHz
  2. Part 2 (IEEE Std 802.16/Conformance02):Test Suite Structure and Test Purposes (TSS&TP), 10-66 GHz
  3. Part 3 (IEEE Std 802.16/Conformance03): Radio Conformance Tests, 10-66 GHz
  4. Part 4 (IEEE Std 802.16/Conformance04): Protocol Implementation Conformance Statements (PICS) proforma, <11 GHz
The Task Group is currently inactive.
Documents The TGC Leadership Team is:

Herbert Ruck (Chair)
Navini Networks

Gordon Antonello served as Chair of TGC prior to Herbert Ruck
