I would like to inform you the new-work mailing list that the IEEE 802.15 work group (WG) has approved the IEEE 802.15.12 Upper Layer Interface (ULI) Project Authorization Request (PAR).  This is for an L2+ project that may impact IETF work groups such as 6tisch, and 6lo 

The next step for this project proposal is for the IEEE 802 WGs to review the PAR and suggest corrective language for errors that they catch.  Should they approve it, it will then go to the IEEE New Standards Committee (NesCom) for final approval before it becomes a fully approved project.  You can download the PAR document: 15-15-0760-06 (https://mentor.ieee.org/802.15/dcn/15/15-15-0760-06-0llc-802-15-12-par-draft.docx) and the Criteria for Standards Development(CSD) document: 15-15-0768-06 (https://mentor.ieee.org/802.15/dcn/15/15-15-0768-06-0llc-802-15-12-draft-csd.docx).  I have included the Scope of the PAR below for your convenience:

802.15.12 Scope: This standard defines an Upper Layer Interface (ULI) sublayer in Layer 2 (L2), between Layer 3 (L3) and the IEEE 802.15.4 Media Access Control (MAC) sublayer.  The ULI provides interfaces for data, control, and management information.  The ULI adapts L3 protocols and provides operational configuration including network and regulation requirements of the IEEE 802.15.4 MAC.  Furthermore, the ULI integrates upper Layer 2 sub-layer (L2+) functionalities focused on interfacing to IEEE Std 802.15.4 such as Key Management Protocols (KMP), L2 routing (L2R) protocols, and Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) 6TiSCH Operation Protocol (6TOP) for optional use.  Finally, the ULI provides protocol differentiation, using mechanisms such as EtherType, to support multiple, diverse higher layer protocols. 

Please send comments to stds-802-15-llc@listserv.ieee.org, which is the reflector for the study group responsible for the project’s PAR and CSD. If you should have any questions or need further information, please contact Pat Kinney <pat.kinney@kinneyconsultingllc.com>;.
