[802.3_DIALOG] Proposed Industry Connections activity - Next Generation Enterprise/Campus/Data Center Ethernet

Dear Colleagues,

Please find attached a draft IEEE-SA Industry Connections Activity Initiation Document (ICAID) form in relation to a proposed IEEE 802.3 Industry Connections activity for Next Generation Enterprise/Campus/Data Center Ethernet. Just as background an Industry Connections activity can be used within IEEE 802.3 to develop output other than standards for example a report. Previous examples within IEEE 802.3 are the IEEE 802.3 Industry Connections Ethernet Bandwidth Assessment ad hoc and the IEEE 802.3 Next Generation Ethernet Passive Optical Network (NG-EPON) ad hoc.

Based on past practice an ICAID requires the endorsement of both the IEEE 802.3 Working Group and the IEEE 802 Executive Committee and follows the same process as that for a Call for Interest for consideration on our plenary agenda. Based on this, this proposed Industry Connections activity will be announced during the IEEE 802.3 Opening Plenary on the morning of Monday 9th November. A consensus building meeting has been scheduled to occur from 18:00 to 19:00 on the evening of Tuesday 10th November. The vote to endorse the ICAID will take place at the IEEE 802.3 Closing Plenary on the afternoon of Thursday 12th November.

As the IEEE 802.3 Working Group reflector is for announcements only I have also CCed the IEEE 802.3 general discussion reflector. Please therefore direct all discussions to the IEEE 802.3 general discussion reflector <stds-802-3-dilaog@xxxxxxxx>. The IEEE 802.3 general discussion reflector is an opt-in reflector so if you wish to discuss this issue please subscribe to the IEEE 802.3 general discussion reflector, if you have not already done so, at the URL <>, or follow the discussion on the reflector email archive at the URL <>.
Best regards,
