RE: [10GBASE-T] Technical feasibility: survey

Title: Message
Thanks for the response, but I'd really like to know your answers to the questions.  Simple yes or no would really help.

The issue on power is not about technical feasibility of dissipating certain amount of power in a chip.  We all know that with advanced packaging technologies and proper cooling and fans a larger amount of power can be dissipated on chip.  The real question is about achieving broad market potential with 10GBase-T.  Power dissipation must be appropriate for server line cards and multi port switch implementations to achieve broad market potential.   We heard a reasonable power target should be around 5W for server cards. If early products are 2-3 watts higher, then that should be OK for some applications.  I hope this issue will be addressed to the study group by September meeting.

I would like to take a quick survey of the experts:
1) Do you believe that 10 Gigabit Ethernet over 100m on Cat7 is not technically feasible?
2) Do you believe that the power required for 10 Gigabit Ethernet over 100m on Cat7 make it not technically feasible?
3) If you said "yes" to 1) or 2), then what do you believe needs to be done to satisfy technical feasibility for the 10GBASE-T Study Group?

Thank you,

Chair, 10GBASE-T Study Group
