The IEEE 802.20 group has new leadership: The IEEE will allow the group standardizing an alternative to WiMax (802.16) to continue work after a two-month suspension following alleged concerns over bias in the leadership. The 802.20 chair was accused of being a Qualcomm consultant without disclosing that fact; Qualcomm’s Flarion has technology that could be at the center of 802.20. A new chair and other offices will be elected. Nancy Gohring of IDG News Service notes that 802.20 was a mobility split-off from 802.16, where members didn’t want to apply mobility on top of a fixed standard.
