IEEE 802.15.8-2017 - IEEE Approved Draft Wireless Medium Access Control (MAC) and Physical Layer (PHY) Specifications for Peer Aware Communications (PAC)

Description: The purpose is to provide a global standard for scalable, low power, and highly reliable wireless communications for emerging services such as social networking, advertising, gaming, streaming, and emergency services. Existing standards may be able to provide parts of the envisioned PAC services, but no single standard provides infrastructureless peer-aware communications with fully distributed coordination.
