IEEE 802.3cz Colleagues,
For Tuesday’s IEEE 802.3cz adhoc meeting, I plan to present two contributions:
swanson_3cz_01_0803_A path forward on media
I am requesting that those wishing to be added as a supporter for these two contributions to please contact me by EOB Friday, July 30.
If there are proposed changes that can be made to gain your support, please let me know.
A couple points for consideration:
- I do not want to delay the project
- We need to develop a technically complete draft to get to WG ballot and initiate the comment resolution process
- I believe that a baseline proposal for a PMD based on OM3 at 980nm is the best technical proposal by far compared with the others (power consumption, price, complexity, robustness, reliability, etc.)
- While we not have complete consensus in the TF on all issues, technical concerns can be addressed in the comment resolution process during WG ballot
- Other technical details
I may also add 50G details to the contribution if time permits pending additional analysis and the development of a power budget if time permits; if not, we can add that in WG Ballot.
I would appreciate your support.
