[802.3_NGBASET] IEEE P802.3bz D3.2 comment resolution results and contingent August interim meeting announcement

Dear Colleagues,

Final responses to comments received on IEEE P802.3bz D3.2 are posted here:


During comment resolution the task force accepted the proposal to change the draft title to be more representative of the draft content and PAR scope.  As a result we will generate D3.3 for recirculation and plan a contingent interim for August.


I have included the comment and remedy below for easy reference.


Title of standard leaves out that this standard establishes Media Access Control parameters for 2.5Gbps and 5Gbps networks. Users of future 2.5Gbps and 5Gbps standards may not realize that MAC parameters are established here.

Suggested Remedy:

Change title from: "Standard for Ethernet Amendment: Physical Layer and Management Parameters for 2.5 Gb/s and 5 Gb/s Operation, Types 2.5GBASE-T and 5GBASE-T" to: "Standard for Ethernet Amendment: Media Access Control Parameters, Physical Layers and Management Parameters for 2.5 Gb/s and 5 Gb/s Operation, Types 2.5GBASE-T and 5GBASE-T" Change on P1 L13, P10 L5, and P23 L6

TF Resolution: ACCEPT.
