[802SEC] IEEE P802.3by draft PAR and CSD response - 25 Gb/s Ethernet
Dear EC members,
In support of subclause 10.2 'IEEE 802 LMSC Approval' of the LMSC Operations Manual please find below the required information in respect to the IEEE P802.3by Standard for Ethernet Amendment: Media Access Control Parameters, Physical Layers and Management Parameters for 25 Gb/s Operation PAR for consideration at the November 2014 plenary.
 Draft PAR and CSD responses:
Draft PAR: <http://www.ieee802.org/3/25GSG/25GE_PAR_final_110914.pdf>
CSD responses: <http://www.ieee802.org/3/25GSG/25GE_CSD_0914_adopted.pdf>
 Explanatory technical background material:
There is a need for greater than 10 Gb/s Ethernet connectivity for server to switch connections. The availability of 25 Gb/s signaling technologies enables interconnect solutions for server to switch applications to be developed which are lower cost than existing 40 Gb/s Ethernet solutions.
 Status of the development of the PAR:
The draft PAR and CSD responses are pending IEEE 802.3 Working Group approval at the November 2014 plenary.
Since the submission deadline for the December 9th (submittal deadline 20th October) NesCom meeting occurs prior to the date of the November IEEE 802 EC meeting, I will pre-submit this draft PAR to NesCom on the understanding that:
[a] Any changes to the draft PAR text resulting from the Plenary will be promptly communicated to the NesCom Administrator.
[b] Should the IEEE 802.3 Working Group not approve the submission, it will be removed from the IEEE 802 LMSC Executive Committee and NesCom agenda.
[c] Should the IEEE 802 LMSC Executive Committee not approve the submission, it will be removed from the NesCom agenda.
