RE: [10GBASE-T] EFM OAM...
you like to make a presentation to that effect? :-)
the Study Group as having three options related to OAM in our
1) state compliance with EFM OAM (and therefore
possibly use it in our effort)
2) state that EFM OAM is beyond the scope of
10GBASE-T, excluding it from use within our effort
3) say nothing, and leave the use of EFM OAM
capabilities up to those implementing the systems
of the three options would you prefer?
anyone else like to state a preferred option?
I would say that
same entity is likely to own both ends of the
ends of the link are expected to be in the same
ends of the link are likely to be in the same room
that there is no need
for management beyond that required for existing enterprise

Study group members,
As some of you may know, EFM (Ethernet in the
First Mile or 802.3ah) has added Operation, Administration and Management
(OAM) capabilities to their specification. Like 802.3af DTE power, the
study group needs to decide whether or not compliance with 802.3ah is within
the scope of our effort, and most specifically the OAM capabilities.
This relates to compatability with our existing standards. If there is
anyone that would like to make presentations for or against compliance with
802.3ah or 802.3ah OAM, please let me know.
Chair, 10GBASE-T Study Group
