edit·history·watch·refresh Stock post message.svg To-do list for IEEE 802.22:

Here are some tasks awaiting attention:
  • Copyedit : The article needs to be written in a more clear in concise manner. The lede needs to capture the article in a nutshell.
  • Verify : Tag with fact tags. Find needed references to clean up.
  • Wikify : The article lacks wikilinks.

My edits[edit]

I have adopted this article and have begun to clean it up. Over the course of the next month or so, I will work though this article and bring it up to good article standards.

The article should be ...

  1. Well-written.
  2. Factually accurate and verifiable.
  3. Broad in its coverage.
  4. Neutral: it represents viewpoints fairly and without bias.
  5. Stable: it does not change significantly from day-to-day because of an ongoing edit war or content dispute.
  6. Illustrated, if possible, by images.

This protocol specific article should include:

  • History of the protocol
Who started it?
When was it started?
What revisions were there?
What are the draft IEEE standards? What are the related IETF RFCs?
  • What other protocols were kept in mind when designing this protocol?
  • Packet structure
  • Since this is a work in progress, what are the current technical discussions?

For those wishing to help, please refer to tasks that need to be done in the todo box above. kgrr talk 21:38, 18 January 2009 (UTC)

Is this licensed like cell phones or unlicensed like wifi?

Is IEEE 802.22 only intended for USA[edit]

Progress or current status[edit]

Has the spec been approved and have there been any implementations ? - Rod57 (talk) 05:00, 9 November 2012 (UTC)

Good question. Much of it was phrased in future tense, while speculation is not appropriate for Wikipedia. But since several standards have been published, would be great for someone to update into past tense describing if anything actually did happen that was predicted!
