RE: Long distance links
Is it true that your proposal outlined in your presentation
entitled 'Scrambled Encoding for 10GigE' at the June 99
interim, requires either:
a) buffering in the PHY
b) a 'word-by-word HOLD' mechanism ( or some other throttle )
in order to support the addition and removal of SYNC
sequences in the data stream? If so, could not a
'word-by-word HOLD' mechanism be used to throttle a 10.0 Gb/s
MAC PLS interface downto 9.58464? If so, wouldn't your
requirements be met as far as baud rate/line code go for
WAN PHYs? Your requirements seem to be geared toward a certain
line rate in the WAN.
Please advise if I've misstated/misrepresented anything.
