Dear Colleagues,


Some reminders ahead of the upcoming Plenary meeting in November


  1. Reminder for this Friday’s deadline for presentation requests – presentations associated with submitted comments will be prioritized
  2. Reminder for deadline for presentation submittal next Tuesday
  3. As noted below, we may start the TF on Monday afternoon of Plenary week if 802.3bs completes its work early in the afternoon.  We won’t know until 802.3bs recirc ballot closes later this week how much work they have to do.  I’ll be emailing an update.  Default is the 802.3cd TF meets all day Tuesday.

Dear Colleagues, 


This is a meeting announcement for the P802.3cd 50 Gb/s, 100 Gb/s, 200 Gb/s Ethernet Task Force.  The meetings will be held during the 802.3 Plenary meeting week in Orlando, Florida the week of Nov 5th- 10th, 2017


Meeting details may be found at


The P802.3cd Task Force will be meeting on the full day Tuesday.


*** Note: The P802.3bs Task Force is scheduled to meet on Monday afternoon.  If the work of the P802.3cd TF looks like it will be tight to complete in the one day of Tuesday AND if P802.3bs TF finishes its work early, then we will start the 802.3cd TF right after P802.3bs TF finishes on Monday PM.  As we get closer to the meeting date and know our workload, I’ll be clarifying the likelihood of this happening.  ***


As a reminder, the 802.3cd Working Group ballot recirculation of D2.2 is currently open (closes on Oct 11th). Details of the ballot are here. The goal of the meeting will be to resolve all the received comments against D2.2.  Contributions are expected to be focused on supporting any proposed changes included in the comments received.  As discussed in September, we are anticipating that we will request approval to move to Sponsor Ballot in November as we see the comment count has fallen considerably during our WG Ballot.


Requests for presentation time shall be made to me at mnowell@xxxxxxxxx  and must be made by EOD Friday, Oct 27th, 2017.  The presenter shall e-mail a PDF, soft-copy by Tues Oct 31st, 2017.
