Additional Information: IMDEA Networks researchers have been contributing actively and extensively to this body of work over the last years. This contribution was produced in the following context: Vice-chairing IEEE 802.21 TGb Antonio de la Oliva was elected as IEEE 802.21 TGb Vice-chair in July 2011. The main responsibility of the position resides in shepherding the IEEE 802.21b specification until it is finally approved by the IEEE 802 Executive Committee. The specification, which contains significant contributions from on-going (MEDIEVAL) and past (CARMEN) European projects, passed the Sponsor Ballot in November 2011 and is currently awaiting approval-which will hopefully be ratified on the March 2012 plenary meeting. Leading of the IEEE 802.21 Future Project Planning Ad-hoc group The IEEE 802.21a and IEEE 802.21b amendments are already completed and waiting for ratification from IEEE 802 EC. This opens the door to new projects within the IEEE 802.21. IMDEA Networks, through one of its collaborators, is currently leading the Ad- Hoc group in charge of defining the new working items. Even more, some of the ideas developed within MEDIEVAL have been proposed and accepted as working items. A new Project Authorization Request (on MIHF_ID Group Management) was prepared through the last months of 2011, and submitted for approval on January 2012. The new project, to be named IEEE 802.21 TGd, will hopefully be approved on the March 2012 meeting. Contributions to IEEE 802.21a/b/c and IEEE 802.11 Apart from the above activities, several technical contributions to IEEE 802.21a/b/c and IEEE 802.11 were performed during the 2011 period. In IEEE 802.21a several contributions and comments to address the different letters and sponsor ballots were performed. The main technical contributions from MEDIEVAL and CARMEN were introduced in IEEE 802.21b during 2010 and beginning of 2011 (2011 being devoted to defending such contributions during the different ballots). IEEE 802.21c standardizes the mechanisms to enable optimized single radio handover. Some of the technical details of this approach are very similar to the issues analyzed for DMM, hence the solutions designed within MEDIEVAL have been contributed to the task group. Finally, part of the work performed in FLAVIA was presented at the Next Wireless Generation Steering Committee (NWG SC), and was received positively.
