[STDS-802-3-400G] FW: Communication from OIF

Dear Task Force Participants,

A communication from the OIF regarding the status of the 400ZR project was sent to IEEE 802.3.  Please see email thread below. 


Mr. Law has asked me to have the Beyond 10km Optical PHYs Study Group consider this in September.   

Upon review of the communication, there are statements relevant to the 400GbE architecture.  Therefore, I wanted to make members of the Task Force aware of this communication, and provide notice that members of the Task Force may wish to participate in the Thursday review at the Study Group meeting.

Subject: Communication from OIF


Dear Study Group Participants,

At the close of the July 2017 Plenary, the WG had approved to liaisons to the OIF and ITU-T, informing them of the formation of the Study Group and requesting information from their respective programs that might be relevant to the Study Group.


The OIF has responded with the following communication –


Mr. Law has asked me to have the Study Group consider this at the Sept Interim.  As our meeting starts on Thursday, I need to know if a response will be necessary so we can get it approved at the Thursday WG Meeting.  We will discuss this further on the 8/24 teleconference I announced.  If anyone has any feedback – please contact me.


It is my understanding from Mr. Anslow that we will not a response from the ITU-T at this time, as their next meeting is after the Sept Interim.
