[10GBASE-T] Objectives

Regarding objectives:

This one is questionable: Meet 802 Function Requirements, with the possible exception of Hamming Distance

802 obsoleted the functional requirements document. Have any of you read the obsolete document to see if you comply? My recollection is that it had some things such as link distances that would be a problem.

The requirements that are still suppose to apply were moved into section 7 of IEEE 802 and I believe that is what you should be following.

David, 802.3 should look at doing a rules change to reflect this into the 802.3 version of the 5 criteria.

Subject: Re: [10GBASE-T] PAR and 5 critters


In my humble opinion, we're starting to degrade from the topic. We're tasked with a PAR and 5 Criteria with a set of Objectives to support.  We are not selecting baseline proposals, nor are we creating a draft.  We do have drafts of our required documents, and if you disagree with those, please relate the discussion to those documents.  From the presentations that I have seen, all PHY vendors are on record as stating that they believed it was possible to transmit 10Gbps on Cat7 cabling. This is an extremely important base to build from because it is the one point that everyone seems to have bought into at one time or another. It is the basis from which the 10G PHY and multi-rate PHY were developed.

If an individual or group of individuals does not believe that this claim is true and wish to start a separate standards development endeavour, they are permitted to perform a call for interest at any time. Otherwise, the focus of this group is for the development of a 10GBASE-T PHY, and involvement means that you support the Study Group this effort.
