Re: [HSSG] 40G MAC Rate Discussion


From discussions I have had, I sense that there may be some confusion regarding the proposal for adding a 40Gb/s MAC rate objecitve.  40 Gb/s has been proposed as an additional MAC rate, not as a replacement for the current objective of 100 Gb/s. 


The presentations given have focused on the needs of servers / end stations:


I encourage all to review the above presentations, and use the reflector to further discuss them and / or the proposed objective.  This will help to assist the SG in preparing for the April Interim, as well as making decisions regarding the project’s objectives. 


Best Regards,

Dear HSSG Members,

As discussed in the action plan pulled together at the end of the plenary week, further discussion on adding a 40G MAC rate as an objective is needed.  Topics of interest include: economic feasibility, broad market potential, and what pmds are desired for this rate.


I would like to encourage all to use the reflector for this subject matter, which could assist individuals in their preparations for the interim meeting next month. 


Best Regards,
