Re: [802.3_NGBASET] IEEE 802.3bz 2.5/5GBASE-T TF Arch AdHoc conf call - reminder for Monday, June 20, 2016 9:00 AM-10:00 AM PDT.

Dear Arthur,

 

2.5G/5G is in TF review (in prep for WG ballot in July â?? with hope that is), closing EoW.

It would be good for your position to be known consistently on both â??T and â??K.

 

Yong.

William,

   If the vast majority of people all agree that having 2.5G Ethernet (in all its various and future forms) support link fault signalling is the right thing to do then fair enough. My concern is that this has slipped in un-noticed and people are not aware of the extra requirement.

 

   Also I am not sure that 2.5GBASE-T â??needsâ?? link fault signalling. My understanding is that it is unnecessary for 2.5GBASE-T but is required for 10GBASE-T and possibly for 5GBASE-T.

 

Arthur

Hi Arthur,

 

I would have preferred to simply take the 1G PCS, RS, and MAC and simply scale it to 2.5G.  However 802.3bz chose to scale down 10G RS and MAC for 2.5G.  I don't think it is a good idea to have RS attached to one kind of PHY not support link fault signaling while supporting it in another when both PHYs are operating the same speed.

 

Note that 802.3cb could simply scale down 10GBASE-R to 2.5G and avoided all this link fault signaling issue but didn't.  We are aware of the scaled up 1000BASE-X solutions in the field for 2.5G and crafted something something that will allow legacy solutions to be compatible (see annex 127B) and yet align to the decisions that 802.3bz task force has made.  

 

I do not think it is justified to ask 2.5GBASE-T to disable something that it needs simply for the sake that some legacy non-IEEE sped up version of 1000BASE-X, RS, MAC can't handle fault signaling. If there is a market demand to connect up this legacy interface to 2.5GBASE-T there are vendor specific workarounds that can be applied.

 

Thanks,

William

William,

   I think 802.3cb should not have modified the 1000BASE-X PCS. There are existing 2.5G implementations using the 1000BASE-X PCS speeded up and I think 802.3cb should just have re-used 1000BASE-X and not invented something new.

 

   Existing 1G implementations have two problems with the requirement to implement link fault signaling:

1.     Encoding sequence ordered sets

2.     Implementing the link fault state machine which generates remote fault on reception of local fault

 

    Because there is no requirement to signal link interruption the link fault state machine is un-necessary for 2.5G data-rates and just adds extra complexity and causes potential inter-operability problems with existing 2.5G implementations.

Hi Arthur,

 

For 2.5GBASE-X link fault signaling will be there. It lets 802.3cb align with 802.3bz.

Task force decided to keep it in for 802.3cb.

http://www.ieee802.org/3/cb/public/may16/Lo_3cb_01a_0516.pdf

 

Also 802.3cb is designed to be compatible with 1000BASE-X PCS running 2.5x faster.

This is true even if a 2.5GBASE-X PCS sends out link fault signaling.  The 2.5GBASE-X PCS

link fault signaling is designed to look like idles to the 1000ABSE-X PCS.

See Annex 127B in the 802.3cb for further description.

 

For 5GBASE-R the link fault signaling is already baked in since it adopts the 10GBASE- R PCS.

 

Thanks,

William

I have prepared the attached presentation for todayâ??s ad hoc call.

 

I have also submitted a comment against draft 3.1 to request making link fault signalling optional for 2.5G and 5G data rates.

Folks,

 

Reminder for tomorrow.

 

Iâ??m expecting a discussion of an unresolved negative vote from May in Whistler. The comment is i-56 (see below from http://grouper.ieee.org/groups/802/3/bz/comments/8023bz_D30_approved.pdf).

 

Regards
