[802SEC] IEEE P802.3cd draft PAR and CSD response - 50 Gb/s and Physical Layers and Management Parameters for 50 Gb/s, 100 Gb/s, and 200 Gb/s Operation
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 P802.3cd Standard for Ethernet Amendment: Media Access Control Parameters for 50 Gb/s and Physical Layers and Management Parameters for 50 Gb/s, 100 Gb/s, and 200 Gb/s Operation PAR for consideration at the March 2016 plenary.
 Draft PAR modification request and modified CSD responses:
Draft PAR: <http://ieee802.org/3/50G/public/50G_NGOATH_PAR_0116.pdf>
CSD responses: <http://ieee802.org/3/50G/public/CSD_50G_NGOATH_01_0116.pdf>
 Explanatory technical background material:
Rapid growth of server, network, and internet traffic is driving the need for higher data rates, higher density and lower cost solutions. Advances in 50 Gb/s signaling technologies can be leveraged to create optimized solutions based on single instance or multiple instances in parallel. IEEE Std 802.3 does not currently define 50 Gb/s Ethernet rates nor define 100 Gb/s or 200 Gb/s Ethernet solutions based on these new technologies.
 Status of the development of the PAR:
The draft PAR and CSD responses are pending IEEE 802.3 Working Group approval at the March 2016 plenary.
