[802.3_DIALOG] Invitation to participate in Sponsor Ballot of IEEE P802.3bw 100BASE-T1

Dear colleagues,

Draft standards within the IEEE 802.3 Ethernet Working Group pass through two balloting cycles, first through IEEE 802.3 Working Group Ballot which this project is currently in, then through Sponsor Ballot. If you wish to take part in the Sponsor Ballot of the IEEE P802.3bw 100 Mb/s Operation over a Single Balanced Twisted Pair Cable (100BASE-T1) draft please follow the instructions found below. Please note that you have to join the ballot group by 26th March 2015, 03:59 UCT (25th March 2015, 23:59 U.S. Eastern Standard Time).

If you have any questions, please contact me.

Best regards,


To participate, you must have access to myProject through an IEEE Web Account <>. This is the same IEEE Web Account you would use to access the IEEE attendance tool.

If you are interested in paying the per ballot fee please contact me at <David_Law@xxxxxxxx>.


Balloting group members have an obligation to respond during the balloting period; failure to return a ballot may disqualify the balloter from participation in future balloting groups.

Once the document is ready to be balloted, you will receive notification via email.  You will typically have 30 days to review the document and return the ballot with your vote. By agreeing to participate in this ballot you have an *obligation* to respond. Failure to return a completed ballot may disqualify you from participating in future ballots.
