[802.3_DIALOG] Call for interest - Distinguished minimum latency traffic in a converged traffic environment
TO: IEEE 802.3 Voters, Observers and Liaisons
The following request for agenda time for a call for interest has been received from Ludwig Winkel. It will be discussed at the IEEE 802 LMSC November 2012 Plenary meeting in San Antonio, TX, USA. If you have any questions please get in touch with either Ludwig Winkel <ludwig.winkel@xxxxxxxxxxx> or myself directly.
This CFI request is the result of the joint technical plenary between IEEE 802.3 and IEEE 802.1 in July 2012 (see http://www.ieee802.org/3/minutes/jul12/0712_joint_802d1_802d3_close_report.pdf#page=5 ).
There is a need for support of distinguished minimum latency traffic in a converged traffic environment. This would help address the requirements in markets such as industrial and automotive control network, where control data is time-sensitive and often requires minimum latency.
This call for interest will assess the interest within IEEE 802.3 to form a form an IEEE 802.3 study group to develop a PAR & 5 Criteria for support of distinguished minimum latency traffic in a converged traffic environment
The call for interest will take place during the IEEE 802.3 Opening Plenary on the afternoon of Monday 12th November. A call for interest consensus building meeting has been scheduled to occur from 6:00PM to 7:30PM on the evening of Tuesday 13th November. 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 15th November.
