Re: [802SEC] +++ 10-day EC Email Ballot +++ IEEE P802.3ba 40Gb/s and 100Gb/s Ethernet approval press release
Dear EC members,
I vote APPROVE with comments.
As per subclause 18.104.22.168 of the IEEE 802 LMSC operations manual, as IEEE
802.3 Working Group chair, I am including the viewpoint of two of my
Working Group members in my vote as follows.
Comments from IEEE 802.3 voter Marek Hajduczenia
The 10G-EPON standard was the first ever dual rate 802.3 standard ...
might consider some different wording here.
How do you enable 10GE deployments through 40GE and 100GE deployments?
Comment from IEEE 802.3 voter John D'Ambrosia
The release should include reference to the Data Centre applications of
40Gb/s and 100Gb/s Ethernet. Please change '.. more powerful server
architectures, network providers ..' to read '.. more powerful server
architectures, data centers, network providers ..'. Please also change '..
high-performance computing, data centers, telecommunications carriers ..'
to read '.. high-performance computing, data centers, telecommunications
