[10GMMF] Intention for Call for Interest in March 2004 on "Data Center Ethernet" (Copied to EFM, 10GBASE-T, 10GMMF, and Blade reflectors)


Firstly, I would like to apologize if you have received multiple messages. I am aware of some messages that have recently not made it through some IEEE reflectors and have no idea if this would have been appropriately forwarded.

This note is to let you know that I will be requesting the 802.3 Chair for time for a call for interest (CFI) on "Data Center Ethernet" (name may change) at the March, 2004 Plenary meeting.

The purpose of the CFI will be to explore adding features to Ethernet to:
1. Provide lower latency transport
2. Provide ensured delivery
3. Enable RDMA over Ethernet

!!! Important !!! It would be inappropriate to have a reflector thread on this topic at this time. Please do not create response traffic on the IEEE reflectors.

For reasons of S*AM, I am not including my email address here. I will be at the Vancouver meeting next week if you would like information.
