[802.3_DIALOG] IEEE 802.3 Study Group update
As a result 50 Gb/s Ethernet Over a Single Lane and Next Generation 100 Gb/s & 200 Gb/s Ethernet Call For Interest, two IEEE 802.3 Study Groups were formed, the IEEE 802.3 50 Gb/s Ethernet over a single lane Study Group and the IEEE 802.3 Next generation 100 Gb/sand 200 Gb/s Ethernet Study Group. It was however concluded at the IEEE 802.3 January interim meeting series, based on the two draft PARs being developed, that the charter of the two Study Groups should be adjusted to align to the scope of these draft PARs. As a result a motion was approved at the IEEE 802.3 Working Group interim meeting held on 21st January 2016 requesting the IEEE 802 Executive Committee approve expanding the charter of the current 50 Gb/s Ethernet over a single-lane Study group to include next generation 100 Gb/s and 200 Gb/s Ethernet rates, and reducing the charter of the Next generation 100 Gb/s and 200 Gb/s Ethernet Study Group to 200 Gb/s single mode fiber.
The IEEE 802 Executive Committee meet yesterday and in response to the above motion approved the re-chartering of the two Study Groups as:
IEEE 802.3 50 Gb/s Ethernet over a single-lane, next generation 100 Gb/s and 200 Gb/s Ethernet Study Group
IEEE 802.3 200 Gb/s Ethernet single-mode Study Group
The titles that appear on the respective web sites will be updated to reflect these changes, however there will be no changes to the URLs or the email reflector shared between these two Study Groups.
