[802.3_DIALOG] IEEE P802.3by 25 Gb/s Ethernet 2nd Sponsor recirculation ballot results

Dear Colleagues,

The 2nd Sponsor recirculation ballot on the amendment IEEE P802.3by 25 Gb/s Ethernet closed successfully on 15th April 2016. The ballot statistics are:

 142 Voters
 117 Approve
   0 Disapprove with comment
   1 Disapprove without comment
   5 Abstain
 123 Ballots returned

  86.62% Response Rate (>= 75% required)
   4.07% Abstain Rate (< 30% required)
 100.00% Approval Rate (>= 75% required)

IEEE P802.3by received conditional approval to proceed to RevCom submittal at the March 2016 IEEE 802 Plenary meeting and since there is 100% approval and no comments submitted this project has met the conditions defined in Clause 12 'Procedure for conditional approval to forward a draft standard' of the IEEE 802 LMSC Operations Manual. Based on this I will report these results to the IEEE 802 EC and then go ahead and submit IEEE P802.3by to RevCom for consideration at their 29th June 2016 meeting and as a result of this the IEEE P802.3by interim meeting that had been scheduled for 20th April 2016 has been cancelled.

Thank you to all that participated in this ballot.
