Subject: [STDS-802-3] Invitation to join Sponsor Ballot group for IEEE
P802.3bp, IEEE P802.3bq, IEEE P802.3br and IEEE P802.3by

Dear Colleagues,

Draft standards within the IEEE 802.3 Ethernet Working Group pass through
two balloting stages, first through IEEE 802.3 Working Group Ballot, then
through Sponsor Ballot. If you wish to take part in the Sponsor Ballot of
the IEEE P802.3bp 1000BASE-T draft, the IEEE P802.3bq 25G/40GBASE-T draft,
the IEEE P802.3br Interspersing Express Traffic (IET) draft, or the IEEE
P802.3by 25G/s Ethernet draft, please follow the instructions found below.
Please ensure you do this before the deadline to join at 23:59 ET on

Please also note that due to the decision to send IEEE P802.3br
Interspersing Express Traffic (IET) out to a second Working Group ballot,
this will be the second opportunity to join the IEEE P802.3br Interspersing
Express Traffic (IET) sponsor balloting group. If you joined last time you
do not need to join again. If you not sure if you already joined just follow
the instructions below, if you have, in step 3 you will see the options
'update, remove' rather that the option 'join'.

If you have any questions, please contact me.

Best regards,
