[802.3_B10K] IEEE 802.3 Beyond 10km Optical PHYs Study Group - Sept 2018 Interim Meeting

Title: IEEE 802.3 Beyond 10km Optical PHYs Study Group - Sept 2018 Interim Meeting

Dear Study Group Participants,

The IEEE 802.3 Beyond 10km Optical PHYs Study Group will be meeting the week of Sept 10, 2018 during the IEEE 802.3 Interim Session being held in Spokane, WA, USA.  Meeting details, hotel reservations and registration links may be found at the following URL:     Please make your hotel reservations as soon as possible.


The motion chartering the formation of the Study Group is as follows

As a reminder, our PAR was approved by the 802.3WG and the 802 EC in July, and is currently awaiting consideration for approval by the IEEE-SA Standards Board on Sept 27.  Therefore, the agenda for the meeting will be the continued study of Beyond 10 km Optical PHYs for 50 Gb/s, 100 Gb/s, 200 Gb/s, and 400 Gb/s Ethernet.  Presentations on the following areas are recommended:

·       Objectives for the Study Group

·       5 Criteria

o       Broad Market Potential

o       Economic Feasibility

o       Technical Feasibility

o       Distinct Identity

o       Compatibility

Given our current state, I am encouraging individuals to bring in additional material on technical feasibility that will assist our anticipated future task force.  As a reminder, given that we are a study group still, we can not make any technical decisions at this time.


Anyone wishing to present, please provide the following information (per Procedure for Presenters web page:   



Presentations should be kept to 20 minutes in duration, excluding time for questions and answers.  Requests for presentation time greater than 20 minutes will be considered on a case-by-case basis, and the requestor should contact the chair prior to making the request to justify the additional time.  Furthermore, I encourage individuals to use the Study Group reflector to reach out to others in the spirit of consensus building.  As chair, I reserve the right to introduce individuals making similar topic requests in the continuing spirit of this encouragement.


Requests for presentation time must be made two Thursdays preceding the meeting.  For the Sept Interim meeting, requests for presentation time shall be made to me at jdambrosia@xxxxxxxx  and must be made by Aug 30, 2018.  The presenter shall e-mail a PDF, soft-copy version of the presentation to me at jdambrosia@xxxxxxxx by Tuesday Sept 4, 2018. 


As a reminder, please make sure that all requests for presentations or submissions of presentation material have no restrictive notices at the bottom of the email.  All such emails will be refused and requests / presentations will not be acknowledged. 


All individuals submitting presentations should review the Procedures for Presenters Page - I would greatly appreciate presenters reviewing their own presentations to verify that they have followed the cited Presentation Style Guidelines.


Also, to support the web site search tool used by the IEEE P802.3 web site the 'Document Information' fields of the PDF file must be completed as follows:


Title: Title of presentation

Author: Name(s) of author(s)

Subject: IEEE 802.3 Beyond 10km Optical PHYs Study Group

I will not accept presentations without these fields properly filled out by the submitter.


As a reminder to the group, we are a contribution driven organization.   It should not be assumed by anyone that work will just get done without contributions to drive it.  Areas not moving forward will be brought to the attention of the Study Group for consideration on how to address.  . 


I look forward to seeing everyone at the hotel in Spokane!


Best Regards,


John D’Ambrosia
