[802SEC] IEEE P802.3bz draft PAR and CSD response - 2.5 Gb/s and 5 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 P802.3bz Standard for Ethernet Amendment: Media Access Control Parameters, Physical Layers and Management Parameters for 2.5 Gb/s and 5 Gb/s Operation PAR for consideration at the March 2015 plenary.
 Draft PAR and CSD responses:
Draft PAR: <http://www.ieee802.org/3/NGEBASET/NGEABT_PAR_DRAFTa_15-Jan-15.pdf>
CSD responses: <http://www.ieee802.org/3/NGEBASET/802d3_NGEABT_CSD_SG_approved.pdf>
 Explanatory technical background material:
There is a need for greater than 1 Gb/s Ethernet connectivity over structured twisted pair wiring to serve existing and growing needs of IEEE 802.11ac based enterprise wireless access points. Availability of 2.5 Gb/s and 5 Gb/s signaling technologies enables interconnect solutions for enterprise wireless access points to switch applications to be served over structured Cat5e or better twisted pair cabling.
 Status of the development of the PAR:
The draft PAR and CSD responses are pending IEEE 802.3 Working Group approval at the March 2015 plenary.
Since the submission deadline for the 25th March 2015 (submittal deadline 13th February 2015) NesCom meeting occurs prior to the date of the March 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.
