Hi Geoff, Thanks very much for your comments - please find attached an updated version of the draft (as well as a diff to show changes) that I hope addresses your comments. Best regards, David ________________________________________ From: Geoff Thompson [mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org] Sent: 29 March 2011 10:03 To: Law, David Cc: STDS-802-SEC@LISTSERV.IEEE.ORG; McCabe Karen Subject: Re: [802SEC] +++ 10-day EC Email Ballot +++ IEEE P802.3bg 40Gb/s single mode PMD approval press release David- I am going to vote DISAPPROVE for the time being. I believe that the press release will tend to be self-defeating is it is overly acronymy and jargony. Because of that, it will get a much narrower uptake in the press than it would with a little work. Specifically, I believe that the work could be limited to the lead-in text: "The IEEE 802.3bg standard, ratified March 31, 2011, enables carriers to deploy equipment that supports 40 Gb/s Ethernet that could also be configurable to interoperate with installed OC-768, OTU3, STM-256 or 40G POS based equipment. The new standardized interface, called 40GBASE-FR, supports transmission up to 2km of single-mode fiber and its serial transmission optimizes optical compatibility with the installed base of carrier 40Gb/s interfaces. The [put in an adjective here*] carrier community is very keen to adopt Ethernet technologies but... * so that editors and readers know which carrier community (pigeon, freight forwarding, telcom, optical data, ....) is being referred to. I believe that the 1st sentence needs to be rearranged and broken up something like: "The IEEE 802.3bg standard, ratified March 31, 2011, enables carriers to deploy equipment that supports 40 Gb/s Ethernet and optimizes optical compatibility with the installed base of carrier 40Gb/s interfaces. The new standardized interface, called 40GBASE-FR, supports transmission up to 2km of single-mode fiber and can be configurable to interoperate with installed base of equipment conforming to [whose? ITU?] OC-768, OTU3, STM-256 or 40G POS optical carrier standards." I don't have any particular attachment to my particular edits but I think this area needs a little work Best regards, Geoff On 283//11 7:45 PM, Law, David wrote: Dear EC members, The attached press release has been prepared in anticipation of the approval of IEEE P802.3bg 40Gb/s single mode PMD at the upcoming IEEE-SA Standards Board meeting on Thursday 31st March. This press release will therefore be released 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. To allow maximum time for process I am announcing the possibility of an 'early close' to this ballot (see below). Best regards, David Motion ====== The EC supports the IEEE P802.3bg 40Gb/s single mode PMD press release, to be released contingent upon the IEEE-SA Standards Board voting to approve the IEEE P802.3bg draft as an IEEE Standard, with editorial changes as deemed necessary.
