[802SEC] +++ 10-day EC Email Ballot +++ IEEE P802.3ba 40Gb/s and 100Gb/s Ethernet approval press release

Dear EC members,

The IEEE-SA has prepared a press release in anticipation of the approval 
of IEEE P802.3ba 40Gb/s and 100Gb/s Ethernet at the upcoming IEEE-SA 
Standards Board meeting on Thursday 17th June. This press release will 
therefore be released on, or after, the afternoon of Thursday 17th June, 
contingent upon the IEEE-SA Standards Board actually voting to approve the 
standard that morning. As the development of this press release was at the 
request of the Task Force Chair and myself I'm seeking EC approval.

Paul has delegated the conduct of the EC electronic ballot on the 
following motion to me.

Please note that there are a number of 'additional quotes' appended to the 
draft release from end users. Since this email ballot process may result 
in a change to the content of release, the appending of each quote to the 
actual release is pending final approval from the sources once they can 
review the final release. This is on the basis that they only have the 
ability to approve the appending of their quotes as is. They will not be 
able to make any further changes or additions to their quotes - or to the 
release itself. If they choose not to provide approval, due for example to 
a change in the release during this ballot, their quote will simply not be 
included. To allow maximum time for process I am announcing the 
possibility of an 'early close' to this ballot (see below).

Best regards,


The EC supports the IEEE P802.3ba 40Gb/s and 100Gb/s Ethernet press 
release, to be released contingent upon the IEEE-SA Standards Board voting 
to approve the IEEE P802.3ba draft as an IEEE Standard, with editorial 
changes as deemed necessary.

Move:   David Law
Second: Pat Thaler

Start of ballot: Wednesday 2nd June 2010
Close of ballot: Saturday 12th June, 11:59PM AOE

Early close: As required in subclause 'Electronic Balloting' of 
the IEEE project 802 LAN/MAN Standards Committee (LMSC) Operations Manual, 
this is notice that, to ensure the release is provided in a timely manner, 
this ballot may close early once sufficient responses are received to 
clearly decide a matter.

This email is sent from the 802 Executive Committee email reflector.  This list is maintained by Listserv.
