1. List Attendees
Peters Weem, Jan
Van Schyndel, Andre
2. Review meeting notes from last week
No comments given. Whoops, none asked for either!
3. Review Lew's additional motions (which were not heard at Ottawa)
This item was postponed to the Oct 19 meeting. Apologies to Lew and Jim, it will be top of the agenda at our next meeting.
4. Presentation on relating TP2 and TP3 to the link budget from Tom Lindsay
Tom: Please send in corrections/changes as appropriate.
In summary Tom had 2 key strands running through his presentation:-
i) TP2 and TP3 testing should both be test configurations which seek to represent the relevant aspects within
the link budget
ii) Specific proposals regarding rise times for the reference Tx and PIE-D figures for the link budget
Separating these two points, the group agreed with point i). This gives us a framework for which to continue to define our tests - recognising we do not have all the numbers finally agreed.
For point ii) the presentation was helpful in supporting a useful discussion, although more work is necessary.
The group did not conclude on when and how to progress the budget.
ACTION: Mike and Tom to discuss the when and how to progress the budget and put forward a proposal.
Piers raised a good question about Jitter testing. He made the point that the jitter testing (currently one high frequency test) may represent a very harsh test as the impairements of the channel will add significant amounts of broadband jitter on their own. There was much discussion around this. I wont attempt to capture this but I encourage interested parties to use the reflector to progress the issue.
Upcoming items of focus (for subsequent metings):-
i) Review Lew's outstanding motions
ii) Static channel methodology
- noise loading
- channel types and exact characteristics
o i.e. do we pick pre, post cursor and quasi symmetric and if so where from? 108 fiber model?
iii) OMA measurement methodology.
