[802SEC] Draft IEEE P802.3ba 40Gb/s and 100Gb/s Ethernet press release

Dear EC members,

The IEEE-SA has prepared a press release to announce the progress of the 
IEEE P802.3ba 40Gb/s and 100Gb/s Ethernet project to Sponsor ballot as 
well as the progress of the related ITU-T recommendation G.709. The IEEE 
P802.3ba project is currently on the Friday agenda as an unconditional 
request to progress to sponsor ballot. The release would be contingent 
upon the IEEE 802.3 EC voting to approve unconditional forwarding of IEEE 
P802.3ba to Sponsor Ballot.

Since the development of this press release was at the request of the Task 
Force Chair and myself I'm seeking EC approval. I've attached the draft 
below and will seek endorsement for it on Monday at the opening EC 
meeting. I am seeking approval on Monday so that, if necessary, if the EC 
does have an issue with the release it can be addressed by Friday to 
ensure a timely release. I would also request that if you have comments 
could you please supply them to me by email if possible so that we may 
update the release if required prior to the vote.

The motion I will make on Monday is:

The EC supports the IEEE P802.3ba 40Gb/s and 100Gb/s Ethernet press 
release to be released contingent upon the IEEE 802 EC voting to 
unconditionally forward the IEEE P802.3ba draft to Sponsor Group ballot 
with editorial changes permitted to the draft press release as deemed 

Best regards,
David Law
IEEE 802.3 Working Group Chair
