intranets to wireless carriers via the Internet, Internet protocols are
being used within wireless networking infrastructures and voice

Internet standards are predominantly formalized by the Internet

involved in many new RFCs and activities that will have a broad impact on
wireless networks. The significance and the scope of these IETF efforts is
not well documented nor well understood.
The purpose of this meeting is to identify IETF efforts that have a
bearing on wireless networking, to identify areas where IETF work will

identify associated issues and problems and to develop recommendations.
