The scope of this project is limited to incorporating the changes between 802-15-1-2002 (Bluetooth specification 1.1) and Bluetooth Specification 1.2 into 802-15-1-2002. The scope of the original project was: To define PHY and MAC specifications for wireless connectivity with fixed, portable and moving devices within or entering a Personal Operating Space (POS). A goal of the WPAN Group will be to achieve a level of interoperability which could allow the transfer of data between a WPAN device and an 802.11 device. A Personal Operating Space (POS) is the space about a person or object that typically extends up to 10 meters in all directions and envelops the person whether stationary or in motion. The proposed WPAN Standard will be developed to ensure coexistence with all 802.11 Networks.
The purpose of this project is to incorporate editorial changes, the errata from 802-15-1-2002 (Bluetooth spec 1.1), the functional changes between 802-15-1-2002 (Bluetooth1.1) and Bluetooth specification 1.2 into 802-15-1-2002. Specifically these include: Format (new volume structure, cleaner formatting)' || ';' || ' Fixes (Errata from the SIG and IEEE applied, Language cleanup (nomenclature + IEEE))' || ';' || ' Features (Architectural Overview, Faster Connections, Adaptive Frequency Hopping for improved coexistence, Extended SCO, Scatternet / Scattermode / Absence Masks, Anonymity Mode, L2CAP Flow & Error Control, LMP Improvements / HCI Improvements)' || ';' || ' Full Backward Compatibility with 802-15-1-2002 ( Bluetooth Specificaton 1.1)
