Foreword

ISO (the International Organization for Standardization) and IEC (the International Electrotechnical

Commission) form the specialized system for worldwide standardization. National bodies that are members of

ISO or IEC participate in the development of International Standards through technical committees established

by the respective organization to deal with particular fields of technical activity. ISO and IEC technical

committees collaborate in fields of mutual interest. Other international organizations, governmental and non-

governmental, in liaison with ISO and IEC, also take part in the work. In the field of information technology, ISO

and IEC have established a joint technical committee, ISO/IEC JTC 1.

IEEE Standards documents are developed within the IEEE Societies and the Standards Coordinating

Committees of the IEEE Standards Association (IEEE-SA) Standards Board. The IEEE develops its standards

through a consensus development process, approved by the American National Standards Institute, which

brings together volunteers representing varied viewpoints and interests to achieve the final product. Volunteers

are not necessarily members of the Institute and serve without compensation. While the IEEE administers the

process and establishes rules to promote fairness in the consensus development process, the IEEE does not

independently evaluate, test, or verify the accuracy of any of the information contained in its standards.

The main task of ISO/IEC JTC 1 is to prepare International Standards. Draft International Standards adopted

by the joint technical committee are circulated to national bodies for voting. Publication as an International

Standard requires approval by at least 75 % of the national bodies casting a vote.

Attention is called to the possibility that implementation of this standard may require the use of subject matter

covered by patent rights. By publication of this standard, no position is taken with respect to the existence or

validity of any patent rights in connection therewith. ISO/IEEE is not responsible for identifying essential

patents or patent claims for which a license may be required, for conducting inquiries into the legal validity or

scope of patents or patent claims or determining whether any licensing terms or conditions provided in

connection with submission of a Letter of Assurance or a Patent Statement and Licensing Declaration Form, if

any, or in any licensing agreements are reasonable or non-discriminatory. Users of this standard are expressly

advised that determination of the validity of any patent rights, and the risk of infringement of such rights, is

entirely their own responsibility. Further information may be obtained from ISO or the IEEE Standards

Association.

Amendment 3 to ISO/IEC/IEEE 8802-11 was prepared by the LAN/MAN Standards Committee of the IEEE

Computer Society (as IEEE Std 802.11ad-2012). It was adopted by Joint Technical Committee

ISO/IEC JTC 1, Information technology, Subcommittee SC 6, Telecommunications and information exchange

between systems, in parallel with its approval by the ISO/IEC national bodies, under the “fast-track procedure”

defined in the Partner Standards Development Organization cooperation agreement between ISO and IEEE.

IEEE is responsible for the maintenance of this document with participation and input from ISO/IEC national

bodies.

Notice and Disclaimer of Liability Concerning the Use of IEEE Documents: IEEE Standards documents are

developed within the IEEE Societies and the Standards Coordinating Committees of the IEEE Standards Association

(IEEE-SA) Standards Board. IEEE develops its standards through a consensus development process, approved by the

American National Standards Institute, which brings together volunteers representing varied viewpoints and interests to

achieve the final product. Volunteers are not necessarily members of the Institute and serve without compensation.

While IEEE administers the process and establishes rules to promote fairness in the consensus development process,

IEEE does not independently evaluate, test, or verify the accuracy of any of the information or the soundness of any

judgments contained in its standards.

Use of an IEEE Standard is wholly voluntary. IEEE disclaims liability for any personal injury, property or other damage,

of any nature whatsoever, whether special, indirect, consequential, or compensatory, directly or indirectly resulting from

the publication, use of, or reliance upon any IEEE Standard document.

IEEE does not warrant or represent the accuracy or content of the material contained in its standards, and expressly

disclaims any express or implied warranty, including any implied warranty of merchantability or fitness for a specific

purpose, or that the use of the material contained in its standards is free from patent infringement. IEEE Standards

documents are supplied "AS IS."

The existence of an IEEE Standard does not imply that there are no other ways to produce, test, measure, purchase,

market, or provide other goods and services related to the scope of the IEEE standard. Furthermore, the viewpoint

expressed at the time a standard is approved and issued is subject to change brought about through developments in the

state of the art and comments received from users of the standard. Every IEEE standard is subjected to review at least

every ten years. When a document is more than ten years old and has not undergone a revision process, it is reasonable

to conclude that its contents, although still of some value, do not wholly reflect the present state of the art. Users are

cautioned to check to determine that they have the latest edition of any IEEE standard.

In publishing and making its standards available, IEEE is not suggesting or rendering professional or other services for,

or on behalf of, any person or entity. Nor is IEEE undertaking to perform any duty owed by any other person or entity to

another. Any person utilizing any IEEE Standards document, should rely upon his or her own independent judgment in

the exercise of reasonable care in any given circumstances or, as appropriate, seek the advice of a competent professional

in determining the appropriateness of a given IEEE standard.

Translations: The IEEE consensus development process involves the review of documents in English only. In the event

that an IEEE standard is translated, only the English version published by IEEE should be considered the approved IEEE

standard.

Official Statements: A statement, written or oral, that is not processed in accordance with the IEEE-SA Standards

Board Operations Manual shall not be considered the official position of IEEE or any of its committees and shall not be

considered to be, nor be relied upon as, a formal position of IEEE. At lectures, symposia, seminars, or educational

courses, an individual presenting information on IEEE standards shall make it clear that his or her views should be

considered the personal views of that individual rather than the formal position of IEEE.

Comments on Standards: Comments for revision of IEEE Standards documents are welcome from any interested party,

regardless of membership affiliation with IEEE. However, IEEE does not provide consulting information or advice

pertaining to IEEE Standards documents. Suggestions for changes in documents should be in the form of a proposed

change of text, together with appropriate supporting comments. Since IEEE standards represent a consensus of

concerned interests, it is important to ensure that any responses to comments and questions also receive the concurrence

of a balance of interests. For this reason, IEEE and the members of its societies and Standards Coordinating Committees

are not able to provide an instant response to comments or questions except in those cases where the matter has

previously been addressed. Any person who would like to participate in evaluating comments or revisions to an IEEE

standard is welcome to join the relevant IEEE working group at http://standards.ieee.org/develop/wg/.

Comments on standards should be submitted to the following address:
Secretary, IEEE-SA Standards Board
445 Hoes Lane
Piscataway, NJ 08854
USA

Photocopies: Authorization to photocopy portions of any individual standard for internal or personal use is granted by

The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc., provided that the appropriate fee is paid to Copyright

Clearance Center. To arrange for payment of licensing fee, please contact Copyright Clearance Center, Customer

Service, 222 Rosewood Drive, Danvers, MA 01923 USA; +1 978 750 8400. Permission to photocopy portions of any

individual standard for educational classroom use can also be obtained through the Copyright Clearance Center.

Notice to users
Laws and regulations

Users of IEEE Standards documents should consult all applicable laws and regulations. Compliance with the

provisions of any IEEE standards document does not imply compliance to any applicable regulatory

requirements. Implementers of the standard are responsible for observing or referring to the applicable

regulatory requirements. IEEE does not, by the publication of its standards, intend to urge action that is not

in compliance with applicable laws, and these documents may not be construed as doing so.

This document is copyrighted by the IEEE. It is made available for a wide variety of both public and private

uses. These include both use, by reference, in laws and regulations, and use in private self-regulation,

standardization, and the promotion of engineering practices and methods. By making this document

available for use and adoption by public authorities and private users, the IEEE does not waive any rights in

copyright to this document.
Updating of IEEE documents

Users of IEEE standards should be aware that these documents may be superseded at any time by the

issuance of new editions or may be amended from time to time through the issuance of amendments,

corrigenda, or errata. An official IEEE document at any point in time consists of the current edition of the

document together with any amendments, corrigenda, or errata then in effect. In order to determine whether

a given document is the current edition and whether it has been amended through the issuance of

amendments, corrigenda, or errata, visit the IEEE-SA website or contact the IEEE at the address listed

previously. For more information about the IEEE Standards Association or the IEEE standards development

process, visit the IEEE-SA website.

periodically.
Patents

Attention is called to the possibility that implementation of this standard may require use of subject matter

covered by patent rights. By publication of this standard, no position is taken by the IEEE with respect to the

existence or validity of any patent rights in connection therewith. A patent holder or patent applicant has

filed a statement of assurance via an Accepted Letter of Assurance, then the statement is listed on the IEEE-

SA website http://standards.ieee.org/about/sasb/patcom/patents.html. Letters of Assurance may indicate

whether the Submitter is willing or unwilling to grant licenses under patent rights without compensation or

under reasonable rates, with reasonable terms and conditions that are demonstrably free of any unfair

discrimination to applicants desiring to obtain such licenses.

Essential Patent Claims may exist for which a Letter of Assurance has not been received. The IEEE is not

responsible for identifying Essential Patent Claims for which a license may be required, for conducting

inquiries into the legal validity or scope of Patents Claims, or determining whether any licensing terms or

conditions provided in connection with submission of a Letter of Assurance, if any, or in any licensing

agreements are reasonable or nondiscriminatory. Users of this standard are expressly advised that

determination of the validity of any patent rights, and the risk of infringement of such rights, is entirely their

own responsibility. Further information may be obtained from the IEEE Standards Association.
