PAR of IEEE P802.11bb

The IEEE 802.11bb task group aims to develop an amendment to the IEEE 802.11 (WiFi) standard serving mass market requirements for Light Communication such as low cost and low energy consumption. Fraunhofer HHI was an active supporter during the technical interest and study group phases to establish the project inside the 802.11 working group. Since the formation of the task group, which has now the mandate to write an amendment of 802.11 for LiFi, Fraunhofer HHI has made numerous technical contributions and proposals mainly regarding the physical layer.

Volker Jungnickel serves as Technical Editor (PHY) in 802.11bb task group.
