[802.3_100GNGOPTX] FW: P802.3bm-2015 Approval Notification

Dear Task Force Participants,

I am very happy to announce that our draft standard, IEEE P802.3bm has been approved as a new standard!!!

This project will open the door to wider adoption of 100G optical solutions and provide a basis for 25G electrical interconnect in both chip-to-chip and chip-to-module applications. In addition, we have provided a 40Km link for 40G networks which will ease large network designs.

Thanks to the editorial team for your work, and thanks to all who contributed to this standard.

Best Regards,

Dan Dove
Soon to be Former Chair, IEEE P802.3bm

Dear David,

I am pleased to inform you that P802.3bm was approved as a new standard by the IEEE-SA Standards Board on 16 February 2015. A copy of the document will be forwarded to the Standards Publications Department. The editor assigned to work on the project will contact you.

An approved IEEE standard will remain active for ten years. If the Sponsor does not complete a revision process within ten years, the standard will be transferred to inactive status.

Please contact me if you have any questions prior to speaking with your editor.
