The following request for agenda time for a Greater than 10 Mb/s long-reach point-to-point single pair Ethernet PHY call for interest has been received from George Zimmerman. It will be discussed during the IEEE 802.3 July 2021 Plenary session.
If you have any questions please get in touch with either or directly.
The work begun in the IEEE 802.3 Enhancements to Point-to-Point Single Pair Ethernet Study Group for a higher-speed long reach point-to-point single pair Ethernet has garnered significant interest in a variety of use cases for long reach at speeds above 10 Mb/s. The Study Group has also submitted an initial focused IEEE P802.3de "Enhancements to the MAC Merge function and the Time Synchronization Service Interface (TSSI) to include Point-to-Point 10 Mb/s Single Pair Ethernet" draft PAR for consideration at the July 2021 plenary session. Since approval of this PAR by the IEEE-SA Standards Board will result in the disbandment of the IEEE 802.3 Enhancements to Point-to-Point Single Pair Ethernet Study Group, this call for interest is to consider continuing the work investigating a potential project for one or more greater than 10 Mb/s point-to-point PHYs using single-pair media at reaches beyond the reach of the existing IEEE 802.3 single-pair PHYs at the same rate in a new Study Group.
The call for interest consensus building session will be held during the IEEE 802.3 Enhancements to Point-to-Point Single Pair Ethernet Study Group meeting on Wednesday the 21st of July at 1515 UTC (the study group meeting itself starts at 1400 UTC with other business).
