[802.3_DIALOG] March Plenary - NEA ad Hoc

Dear Ad hoc Participants,

I want to give an update on the upcoming NEA session at the March Plenary

  1. >10km SMF PMDs – this activity will not meet at this session, as I am anticipating new technical data that won’t be available until after OFC, which is after the March Plenary.
  2. Next-Generation MMF PMDs – this activity will meet.  Please contact Robert Lingle if you have further questions.
  3. New Effort – 100Gb/s Electrical Signaling Over Copper.  This is a new topic for discussion that has been requested by Joel Goergen of Cisco.  Individuals who are interested in participating in this effort or have relevant data or slides should contact Joel.


The NEA Ad Hoc will be meeting Monday night, March 13, 7pm to 10pm, and will address Topics 2 & 3. 

Information regarding the March meeting may be found at
