Re: Standard Test Waveforms


Portions of the existing 802.3 Standard that are intended to be used in 
machine readable form as opposed to human readable are already handled by 
posting on the 802.3 website.

To date this includes:
         802.3ad SNMP MIB
         802.3ab Waveform
         802.3ab MathCad code
I don't see any new issues here.
