[802.3_B10K] Announcing some pre-CFI consensus calls on "Beyond 10km Optical 100 Gb/s PHYs"

< Sent to NEA reflector & copied to B10k reflector >


Dear Colleagues,


In September’s 802.3 Beyond 10K Study group’s discussions the topic of adding a 100 Gb/s data rate to the study group’s scope came up.  Since 100Gb/s is currently out of scope for that study group, it would be necessary to have a call for interest to have it included in a study group discussion.  Based on the discussion and the positive straw poll, a CFI is planned for November.    


A series of prep and consensus building calls will be held on:

Wed Oct 11th @ 8-9 PT

Wed Oct 25th @ 8-9PT

Wed Nov 1st @ 8-9 PT


A couple of OL invitations with Webex link will follow shortly.


The purpose of the calls will be to walk through the draft presentation ahead of the CFI meeting @ November’s Plenary to gather feedback (and hopefully supporters).


If you have any questions or would like to get involved in the preparation of the presentation, please contact myself or Matt Traverso.


Regards… Mark and Matt
