The following request for agenda time for a 10 Mb/s Single Pair Ethernet Multidrop Enhancements call for interest has been received from Peter Jones. It will be discussed at the IEEE 802 LMSC July 2019 Plenary meeting in Vienna, Austria.
If you have any questions please get in touch with either or directly.
Ethernet is becoming the networking technology of choice in the OT environment, e.g. Building and Industrial Automation. The emergence of 10Mb/s Single Pair Ethernet creates significant opportunities to migrate these environments from fieldbus technologies to Ethernet. Enhancing multidrop support expands the addressable market for this technology. Enhancements such as longer mixing segments, increased node counts and support of power over the mixing segment have been requested from the industry. With the progress of IEEE P802.3cg towards ratification, this is the time to start this effort.
The call for interest will take place during the IEEE 802.3 Opening Plenary on the morning of Monday 15th July. A call for interest consensus building meeting has been scheduled to occur from 20:30 to 21:30 on the evening of Tuesday 16th July. The vote to determine if a Study Group will be formed will take place at the IEEE 802.3 Closing Plenary on the afternoon of Thursday 18th July.
