[802.3BA] 40GbE on SMF Ad-Hoc - teleconference

at the last 802.3ba meeting in Portland, I presented in barbieri_01_0108
the case for positioning 40GbE as an inter-switch technology (beyond the
server access application). Consistently with the requirements of
inter-switch applications the presentation closed with the
recommendation to the 802.3ba Task Force to adopt a new objective for
40G over single mode fiber.

In the spirit of consensus building, John has asked me to organize a
series of conference calls to discuss how to move forward the
recommendation to add a new objective for 40G on SMF.

We will have the first meeting next week on Thursday at 8 am pacific
time with the following agenda:

a) Discussion presentations/contributions required to address:
	- Technical Feasibility
	- Economic Feasibility
	- Broad Market Potential
	- Distinct Identity

b) Start reviewing contributions (if any).

c) Identify contributors going forward in each of the key areas.

The intent is to host this meeting on a bi-weekly basis. I reserved two
hours for the first meeting.

All the material will be posted on a dedicated web page here .

Thank you,
