Comment #: 1
CommentType: Editorial
Comment:
My comment is editorial or at least a question as to the wisdom of putting a temporary thing like a URL into the body of a Standard as is being suggested for Table 28A-1.
CommentEnd:
SuggestedRemedy:
RemedyEnd:
Response:
Reject: The revisions of the standard itself have a limited life and the Standard has been through two revisions (IEEE Std 802.3-1998 and IEEE Std 802.3-2000), and has had multiple supplements, since the web site was launched. I therefore still believe this is something we should do and has the benefit of pointing the user to the latest information.

Change #: 1002
CommentType: (E, T, ER, or TR) TR
Comment:
I agree with the intent of the revision, but there is no need to introduce any additional conformance requirement ("shall statement"). The "shall
statement" in 31.5.3 is adequate.
CommentEnd:
SuggestedRemedy:
Change the proposed change to read: "The MAC Control sublayer sinks all MAC Control frames."
RemedyEnd:
Response:
Reject: This shall statement enforces the need to sink MAC Control frames at the MAC Control sublayer and as the request states this is already mandatory as the state machine shows this. We however note that a PICS entry is missing due to this additional shall statement. We
will add the missing PICS entry.

While it is accepted that the note referred to is missing, it is not known what it said so more research is required into what the exact revision should be.

Action: Tom Mathey to contact Geoff Thompson, after 27th March, to help him review earlier versions and drafts of the standard to clarify if the note was ever present and if so what it said.

IEEE 802.3 Maintenance plenary week meeting 10-Jul-01
Awaiting Tom to contact Geoff in reference to this change.

IEEE 802.3 Maintenance plenary week meeting 11-Nov-01
Geoff Thompson has reviewed the previous editions of IEEE Std 802.3. What he reported is as follows -

The footnote is (from bottom of page 77 of the 1993 Edition)

(8) 32 bit counter size specification is not a part of this ISO/IEC standard. Resolution of 32 vs. 64 bit counter size will be addressed during the further work required to develop this section into a specification sufficient for ISO/IEC interoperability requirements.

As closely as I can tell there was a dual reference to this footnote.

The first which was numbered in the old text of 5.2.3.1.1 which said:

(1) Number of SQETestErrors: Recommended, ReadOnly, 32(8) bit counter

In this line in a triumph of vagueness in style the "8" looks like an exponent to the 32.

The send reference which I think is to the same thing (but it is a little vague) is the famous line we are looking at:

CounterLarge=0..maxLarge--See footnote

There is no Clause 5 in the 92 Edition

In the first printed edition of Layer Management IEEE Std 802.3h-1990...

There is no footnote nor mention of 64 bit counters at all that I can find.

Based on the above the proposed revision text will be changed to read - Add a footnote that reads "Example counter size; for information on how to size counters see 30.3". The rationale for revision should be changed to read "The sentence 'counterLarge = 0..maxLarge -- See footnote.;' refers to a footnote which does not exist, this change restore the footnote.

D2.0 Comments:

CR 1004
Comment Type TR
Page 1004-2 line 54: The footnote does not provide useful information - 30.3 doesn't giveinformation on how to size counters unless you consider the increment rate to be suchinformation. If that is what is meant, make the footnote state that 30.3 gives counter incrementrates. Also, why does the note start "Example counter size" as there is no example?
SuggestedRemedy
Either make the footnote more informative or delete "See footnote" If See footnote is retained, itshould probably be put in the brackets used for comments in text as it isn't currently properpseudo-Pascal.
Response
ACCEPT IN PRINCIPLE.
Change the footnote to read 'The CounterLarge declaration is an example of how to declare acounter. This particular example produces a 32 bit counter.The current footnote reference will also be formatted to be a comment.

Comment:
Contrary to the assertion of the requester, "wasTransmitting" is indeed defined in the interface to the Physical Layer. See 802.3, subclause 4.2.7.4 (b), which lists the components of this interface.
CommentEnd:
SuggestedRemedy:
Do not implement the proposed revision.
RemedyEnd:
Response:
Reject: “wasTransmitting” is not in 4.2.7.4 (b), only “transmitting”. “wasTransmitting” is used within the MAC only and is generated in Process Deference, not an input from the PHY.

IEEE P802.3ag/D1.1 Working Group Recirculation Ballot Comment resolution 12-Jan-01
CommentID: 1
Clause: Comment 1021
CommentType: (E, T, ER, or TR) TR
Comment:
Either I am seeing words that aren't there, or something has changed since my copy of 802.3 was printed. Looking at 802.3-1998, subclause 4.2.7.4 (Summary of Interlayer Interfaces), page 61, fourth and fifth lines from the bottom of the page:
transmitting: Boolean; {Indicates outgoing bits}
wasTransmitting: Boolean; {Indicates transmission in progress or just completed}
These entries are present under "The interface to the Physical Layer, defined in ...".
The resolution to my comment said, ""wasTransmitting" is not in 4.2.7.4 (b), only "transmitting". I reiterate that "wasTransmitting" is there, and that the original commenters request should not be implemented.
CommentEnd:
SuggestedRemedy:
Do not implement the proposed revision, or show me that this section no longer contains the indicated line of Pascal.
RemedyEnd:
Response:
Reject.
The commenter is indeed correct that “wasTransmitting” is in subclause 4.2.7.4, item b). It appears the response to the comment in the previous ballot (D1.0) was incorrect. What the change is stating is that wasTransmitting is not an input from the Physical Layer and therefore should not be shown as such in Figure 2-1b. This is indeed true, in the Pascal on Page 66 of 802.3-1998, in process deference, wasTransmitting is assigned a value (wasTransmitting = transmitting) hence it cannot be an input from the Physical Layer and a search of 802.3-1998 shows that wasTransmitting only appears in process deference. Further, while subclause 4.2.7.4 item b) lists wasTransmitting, it states it is summarising the interface defined in 4.3.3, yet 4.3.3 does not include wasTransmitting. Due to this the change request is still valid and should in fact be augmented to add an additional change that the variable definition for wasTransmitting should be removed from subclause 4.2.7.4 item b) and placed in the deference process.

Action: Geoff Thompson to review earlier versions and drafts of the standard to clarify if there has been any change to the format of this equation.

IEEE 802.3 Maintenance plenary week meeting 13-Mar-02
E-mail from Geoff Thompson in response to action item.

I have looked on the balloted draft, the figure matches what is published (no surprise since it is unlikely that FIGs get edited during prep for publication.
I have examined the equations.
I find that the current text is technically adequate. There is no ambiguity in the term:

transmission_in_progress = false * DA = reserved_multicast_address + phys_Address

There is, however, a stylistic inconsistency between this expression and the term on the right hand side of the diagram. I have checked with Rich Seifert. He agrees. Bottom line, it is OK (i.e to support editorial consistency within the same diagram) for the parens to go in. It is an editorial change. The new would appropriately be:

transmission_in_progress = false * (DA = reserved_multicast_address + phys_Address)

Update errata sheet with this under the 'minor editorial'.

E-mail from Geoff Thompson dated 26th July 2001

This paragraph does not exist in the initial edition of 802.3 (1985).
The typo "required" does show up in the 1990 ISO edition.
In the first supplement to 802.3 (ANSI/IEEE Std 802.3a,b,c and e-1988)
...the text was added to 1.2.1
It says "required"

Clause: 25
Subclause: 25.3, 25.4
CommentType: (E, T, ER, or TR) TR
Comment:
The proposed changes cause a number of problems, both for existing cable plants and existing transceivers. A change to the cable specification can make existing (conformant) cable plants now non-conformant. As many end users contractually bind installers and/or
maintenance personnel to meet a published standard, this change can open the door for considerable confusion as to whether a given site conforms to the standard.
Second, the BER requirement is stated backwards from the way a BER is normally presented. Usually, the requirement is on the electronics (i.e., the transceiver) to deliver data with a BER not exceeding some level, under specified noise conditions. This change would place a
requirement on the *cable system* to present noise such that a transceiver will not deliver data exceeding the given BER. Unfortunately, this is both untestable (i.e., there is no way to test a cable plant to see if the BER will exceed 10^-9 when a worst-case transceiver is put into the system), and can cause existing, conformant cable plants to now become non-conformant. One cannot, years after a standard is approved and tens-of-millions of transceivers installed in the field, suddenly add a requirement that the cable plant and transceiver must meet some minimum BER
requirement.
CommentEnd:
SuggestedRemedy:
Do not implement the proposed revision.
RemedyEnd:
Response:
The response is in two parts, the first part addresses the first paragraph of you comment, the second part addresses the second part of your comment.
Reject: The cable plant in ANSI TP_PMD and IEEE 802.3 Clause 25 specify Category 5 UTP as the compliant channel or link segment. When ANSI TP_PMD was published EIA/TIA or ISO 11801 had not completed their work on Category 5 or Class D links. Since then a compliant Category 5 UTP channel is now specified in the Standard EIA/TIA 568 TSB-67 and TSB-70 and are the same requirements as the proposed change. The requirements in EIA/TIA are the only published specifications for a compliant Category 5 UTP channel and are the only requirements that have been used to certify a cable plant as Category 5.
Accept: The requirements for BER and cable systems will be removed. In 25.4.6.3 the text ‘... a 100BASE-TX PHY shall meet a 10^-9 BER in the ...’ will be changed to read ‘... a 100BASE-TX PHY should operate in the ...’. In 25.4.6.3.1 the text ‘... link segment shall not exceed ...’ will be changed to read text ‘... link segment should not exceed ...’.

Comment: IEC 61754-4, Interface 4-2 is for simplex SC connectors not duplex SC connectors
CommentEnd:
SuggestedRemedy: Replace 'Interface 4.2' with 'Interface 4.3'
RemedyEnd:
Response:
Accept in principle
We accept that it is correct that interface 4-2 is not the duplex SC plug, but incorrect that interface 4-2 is the simplex SC plug. Rather, interface 4-2 is the simplex SC adapter. Interface 4-1 is the simplex plug. For duplex SC plugs the correct reference is interface 4-3. For duplex SC adapters the correct reference is interface 4-4. Since clause 26 specifies the MDI, it is appropriate to refer to the adapter specification. This means reference interface 4-4. Here is a summary of the interface designations:
4-1 = simplex SC plug
4-2 = simplex SC adapter
4-3 = duplex SC plug
4-4 = duplex SC adapter.
So reference should be IEC 61754-4 Interface 4-4. In addition, subclause 38.11.3 ‘Medium Dependent Interface (MDI)’ references IEC 61754-4 Interface 4-2 in relation to a Duplex SC MDI connector so is also incorrect. The change request will therefore be modified to include the correction of this subclause.

CommentID: 1
CommenterName: Mike Dudek
CommenterEmail: mdudek@cieloinc.com
CommentType: (E, T, ER, or TR) T
Comment:

The Duplex SC referenced in the IEC standard is a solidly connected plug which requires tighter tolerances between the two SC receptacles than are contained in the Fiber Channel description. (Which assumes the two individual SC's are "yoked" together with some compliance in the connector plug). I believe the change suggested will cause problems to some existing transceivers ie there will be an impact on existing networks. Much discussion took place on this topic in Fiber Channel in their FC-PI revision with the decision that the reference could not be called out as is, but needed to include a modification to the tolerance between the two SC receptacles.

Response:

Accept in principle.

A number of e-mail discussion took place over the connector specification referenced by FDDI and the 1Gb/s specification within IEEE Std 802.2-2000. During these discussions an additional IEC connector specification, IEC 60874, has been identified. These discussion however were taking time and to ensure timely resolution of the remaining Change Request in the P802.3ag package Change Request #1037 will be removed from the package and the remaining request will move forward to sponsor ballot. Change Request #1037, or its successor, will be placed in the next maintenance ballot package.

As this request seem to have some technical issues within it status has been set to incomplete.
Action - David Law and Geoff Thompson to contact Tad and Mike Dudak about this change request. (Tom Lindsay also volunteered later on in the meeting week).

New status Incomplete - (I)

IEEE 802.3 Maintenance plenary week meeting 11-Nov-01
During discussion of the 1000BASE-X specification it was found that the specification was indeed intended to be a 'duplex SC' meeting the dimension and interface specifications IEC 61754-4, Interface 4-4. This aligns with Mike Dudek's comment. Due to this the changes within the request related to Clause 38 are incorrect and should be removed. It was also agreed that the new specification for 100BASE-FX should be the same as that for 1000BASE-X hence the change request returns to its original form.

D3.0 Comment:

This revision creates a problem:
26.4.1 Medium Dependent Interface (MDI)
Change subclause 26.4.1 as follows:
[Maintenance request 1037 - http://www.ieee802.org/3/maint/request/maint_1037.pdf] The 100BASE-FX medium dependent interface (MDI) shall conform to one of the following connectors.
The recommended alternative is the Low Cost Fibre Optical Interface Connector.
a) The duplex SC connector as specified in IEC 61754-4 [B25] and IEC 61754-4, Interface 4-2. (See 38.11.3).
b) Media Interface Connector (MIC) as specified in fiber-PMD 7 and Annex F. When the MIC is used, the receptacle shall be keyed as "M".
c) Optical Medium Connector Plug and Socket (commonly called ST connector) as specified in 15.3.2.
The problem is that we have deleted the words "Low Cost Fibre Optical Interface Connector" which is preferred! (except in the PICS).

SuggestedRemedy

Response

ACCEPT IN PRINCIPLE.

Comment #12 response reads:

Change the first paragraph of 26.5.4 to read:
"The 100BASE-FX medium dependent interface (MDI) shall conform to one of the following connectors. The recommended alternative is the duplex SC Connector."

Comment #: 15
Change #: 1041
CommentType: (E, T, ER, or TR) TR
Comment: RE: 1041 - The proposed revision text says that notHCD = all is already defined. notHCD and all are each defined to represent a set of transceivers. It is not clear how an equation between the two sets such as notHCD = all is to be interpreted. I expect that what is meant is that there is no Highest Common Denominator. This either needs to be defined or instead define HCD as possibly having the value empty so
that the test can be HCD = empty. I prefer the latter since it is more clear.
There is also another possible resolution. Part of the exiting test is link_status_[HCD] = FAIL and there is no timer on this transition. It would seem that if HCD is the empty set that the HCD is in the failed status – a link with no HCD can not possibly work. So the change could also be executed by defining link_status_[HCD] as optionally equal to FAIL when HCD is empty.
CommentEnd:
SuggestedRemedy: Define HCD = empty when there is no highest common denominator and test for this rather than notHCD = all or define Link_status_[HCD] as Fail when HCD is empty.

Response:
Accept: For resolution see remedy contained in comment #22.
ResponseEnd:

Comment #: 22
Change #: 1041
CommentType: (E, T, ER, or TR) T
Comment:
The following is in Response to Pat Thaler's comment #15 suggesting improvements to Change# 1041:
I do agree with the statement that notHCD=all is unclear and prefer HCD=empty, however I have a new problem with the how HCD and notHCD are defined, in that they are set of variables defined for "a variable with '_[x]' appended" (referring to the first sentence of 28.3.1). I believe the clearest way to solve this is to verbosely define the variable. To do this, I would suggest a new remedy, see SuggestedRemedy below.
The alternative proposal in comment 15 to rely on link_status_[HCD]=fail when there is no HCD does not accomplish the desired goal of bypassing the link_fail_inhibit timer following a negotiation which results in no compatible HCD. The current standard defined text is: (link_status_HCD=FAIL + link_status[HCD]=READY) * link_fail_inhibit_timer_done.
Removing link_status_[HCD]=fail from the control of "link_fail_inhibit_timer_done" is not desireable as link_status_[HCD]=fail routinely occurs upon entrance to the state FLP LINK GOOD CHECK even when a valid HCD is selected.
CommentEnd:
SuggestedRemedy:
In Figure 28-16, the transition from FLP LINK GOOD CHECK to TRANSMIT DISABLE should read:
""
((link_status_[HCD]=FAIL + link_status_[HCD]=READY) * link_fail_inhibit_timer_done) + incompatible_link=TRUE
""
add to 28.3.1 the variable definition for incompatible_link
""
incompatible_link
Parameter used following Priority Resolution to indicate the resolved link is incompatible with the Local Device settings. A device's ability to set this variable to true is optional.
Values: false; A compatible link exists between the Local Device and Link Partner (default).
true; Optional indication that Priority Resolution has determined no highest common denominator exists following the most recent negotiation.
NOTE - This variable is set by this definition; it is not set explicitly in the state diagrams.
""
finally, ammend the NOTE at the bottom-right of the Figure 28-16 to include the new "incompatible_link" variable:
""
NOTE: ability_match, acknowledge_match, single_link_ready, consistency_match, and incompatible_link are set according to the variable definitions and are not set explicitly in the state diagrams.

CommentType: (E, T, ER, or TR) TR
Comment: RE: 1047 - The proposed change doesn't identify which transition term it is trying to change. Also, the transition from Base_Page_TX to Flp_Link_Good_Check (which apparently where this is to be applied based on the rationale) appears to have gone outside the frame of the figure. The transition disappears at the right edge of the diagram reappears at the bottom. Thirdly, the transition term should be placed close to the state it is exiting rather than at the end of the arrow because it makes it much harder to read state diagrams when the transition term is so far from the state in which it is evaluated.

CommentType: Technical
Comment: If the terms are labeled as:
A is mr_bp[NP],
B is mr_lp_np_able,
C is np_loaded;
then the original equation is (A) * (B) * (C) + (not A) * (B). The proposed equation is A * C + not A, which results in term B being completely removed. While the intent may be to remove term B, there is no supporting text to justify the removal.

Regarding Change #1049, and Comment #9 by Ben Brown np_loaded is not defined otherwise, the suggested remedy from Ben Brown is correct. In response to Tom Mathey's comment #7, mr_lp_np_able is not needed in the equations in the three states in question (1000T_MP_TX, 1000T_UP1_TX, 1000T_UP2_TX) as 1000T_MP_TX cannot be entered without mr_lp_np_able being True on the transition from
Base_Page_TX to 1000T_MP_TX.

Geoff commented that the should not have been approved as the MIB has already been published with the existing items and rather than modifying them they should be deprecated with new items added.

Action - David Law to talk to Dan Romascanu about this.

IEEE 802.3 Maintenance plenary week meeting 10-Jul-02
Pat asked for a volunteer to submit a new change request. Geoff has withdrawn his informal request to change this. While best practice would have been to deprecate the objects and add new correct items, at this point further change would be as likely to produce interoperability problems as to resolve them.

Pat covered this error in the maintenance report at the Thursday Closing Plenary where there was nobody concerned enough to submit a change request.

IEEE 802.3 Maintenance plenary week meeting 11-Nov-01
The following e-mail was received from Sailesh Rao with respect to the change request -

This is not an errata. The term "state" is being used here in the sense familiar to linear systems exponents (see, e.g., T. Kailath, Linear Systems, Prentice Hall), but it can be interpreted in the way Vivek assumes if you look at it from a computer engineering standpoint. I would vote to leave it as is, but if Vivek is not satisfied, I would be agreeable to changing this to "three-bit convolutional encoder", to put this behind us.

I believe there was another comment equivalent to this during the normal review process, which we rejected. You could probably dig that up and use it to persuade Vivek to rescind his comment.

Action - David Law to contact Vivek to request that he withdraw this request.

I thought we had corrected this change at a maintenance meeting but the change didn't get into the balloted text. The reference should be to 40.7.6. Looking at drafts, the text in 40.7.6 was40.7.5.1 and sometime near publication the number was changed so this would keep the reference the same as what was balloted. Alien NEXT is a type of external coupled noise.
SuggestedRemedy
Use 40.7.6 as the corrected reference.
Response
ACCEPT.

CR 1068
Comment Type T
Is this really necessary? This change request covers repeaters on 10BASE- networks, 2 subjects which are long past the point of interest (not at all "what everyone wants to see"). The change will add a page and may force many standards watchers to read through the changed section in order to verify that there is no material change. It is unlikely that anyone is intending to implement a new design using this Clause which would be helped by the new illustration.
SuggestedRemedy
The principle of Occam's razor suggests that this Clause should be left alone.
Perhaps the proposer might consider withdrawing this request.
Response
REJECT.

RejectedAnnex 28C - Allocation of new Next Page Message Code Field18-Mar-01


IEEE 802.3 Maintenance plenary week meeting 10-Jul-01
The same process used to allocate Auto-Negotiation Selector Fields will be used to allocate Next Page Message Code Fields. A web page will be added to show the allocation of Next Page Message Code Fields, and the Working Group Chair will be the Registration Authority controlling the allocation of the
Auto-Negotiation Message Code Fields.

One change to both the Auto-Negotiation Selector Field and Auto-Negotiation Message Code Field allocation pages should be to change the Registration Authority from being a name to a position.

The Auto-Negotiation Message Code Field space will have the first 255 values reserved for IEEE P802 project use then the area after that for Vendor use. TDK is therefore allocated the value 256 in response to this request.

D2.0 Comments:

CR 1078
Comment Type TR
I believe that the revision request 1078 is a feature addition, and not a maintenance request. The request does highlight an issue with the wording for the variable mr_page_rx and a missing value in Table 28-8. Instead of adding new features, I'd recommend we fix the error.
SuggestedRemedy
Add a variable to 28.3.1 (matches the variable used in 40C.1):
mr_np_rx[16:1]
A 16-bit array that contains the advertised ability of the link partner's next page abilities Link Code Word.
For each element in the array:
Values: zero; data bit is logical zero.
one; data bit is a logical one.
Change mp_page_rx in 28.3.1 to read:
Status indicating whether a New Page has been received. A New Page has been successfully received when acknowledge_match=true and consistency_match=true and the Link Code Word has been written to mr_lp_adv_ability[16:1] or mr_np_rx[16:1], depending on whether the page received was a base or next page, respectively, and per the requirements of
28.2.4.1.7.
Add to Table 28-8 the following entry:
mr_np_rx[16:1] 8.15:0 Auto-Negotiation link partner's next page ability register
Response
ACCEPT IN PRINCIPLE.
A recommendation will be added that 'all new implementation use Register 8'.


CR 1078
Comment Type TR
I'm still concerned about impact of proposed changes on existing implementations. More details on impact to existing implementations would help narrow selection among the alternatives discussed. The prudent course at this time is not to make any changes until the full impact is better understood.
SuggestedRemedy
The solution of writing to both registers 5 and 8 may be preferable (but I agree this is not ideal either).
Response
ACCEPT IN PRINCIPLE.
Your comment addresses the original change request which was a problem statement and does not address the solution developed and proposed. The proposed solution has been carefully designed to not impact existing hardware.
An update will be added to the Change request statements. No change is required to the proposed normative text.

CR 1078
Comment Type E
The word "determined" implies that bit 6.5 can control where next page is stored. As read only, it is a status bit.

Existing equipment is more likely to return a value of "0" for bit 6.6. The default value should match what existing equipment returns.

Response

The default values for both 6.5 and 6.6 will be changed to be blank.


CR 1078
Comment Type E
I finally saw something I had missed before, and perhaps it wasn't noticed by others during preparation of the response. This register problem may have started with an incompletely edited copy and paste that was never corrected. Reviewing the change at the referenced line, I noted that clause 22 and 28 use very different names for register 8. (Most registers in this clause only have slightly different names from clause 22.) Register 8 isn't an ability register.
SuggestedRemedy
In the referenced subclause, change: "Auto_Negotiation link partner Next Page ability register (Register 8)." to "Auto-Negotiation Link Partner Received Next Page register (Register 8)."
If accepted, would also require change to:
page 230 of IEEE Std 802.3-2002: 28.2.4.1.7 subclause heading plus three occurrences in first paragraph.
page 231: Table 28-7 title end of first line of change request page 6, line 23

CR 1079
Comment Type T
I believe this is alright to only require locally administered addresses but have no expertise to understand what effect this might have on MAN or Wide Area implementations.
SuggestedRemedy
Response
REJECT.
It appears that you have misunderstood the change. IEEE 802.3 currently allows both locally and globally administered addresses, but clause 43 has a statement that implies that it only allows globally administered. This change removes the incorrect statement and does not change the allowed behavior. See clause 3.2.3 which allows both types of MAC address.

CR 1079
Comment Type TR
1) There are two places in the rationale where some words seem to be missing which makes it difficult to understand the associated parts of the explanation.
2) This revision request seems to support configurable MAC addresses. This may be a major change and requires more thorough discussion of the consequenses.
SuggestedRemedy
I welcome this request rewritten with more thorough discussion of the consequneces for being able to make a decision.
Response
REJECT.
Yes, some words are missing in the rationale. Also, the text of the rationale is copied from an interpretation request so the tone is that of a question rather than a more definite statement. It
should say:
The statement in 43.2.10 that "each IEEE 802.3 MAC has an associated globally-unique individual address whether that MAC is used for Link Aggregation or not (see Clause 4 [Part 1]." is inaccurate. IEEE 802.3 does not require that the MAC address be globally-unique. 3.2.3 defines the MAC address space as including both globally unique and locally administered addresses. This change deletes "globally-unique" from the sentence to make it accurate. "individual" should not have been deleted as each MAC must have an individual address. The strike out in the change goes too far and should be corrected. The change has no impact on implementations since it is not changing the requirements for MAC addresses. Some implementations allow the MAC address to be configured, but IEEE 802.3 takes no position on that and this correction does not change that.

This change should be updated to reflect the recently approved ISO/IEC 11801:2002. In addition the specification for Chromatic Dispersion should be removed from the 10BASE-F (Clause 15) as this is not a parameter normally specified for Multimode fibre and the update to Annex B.5 related to 10BASE-FP should be removed as we are no longer performing maintenance on the 'deprecated' PHYs (see Change request 1098).

1. Add the text 'ISO/IEC11801:2002 provides a specification for media that exceeds the minimum requirements of this standard.' to the note at the end of 14.4.1, and as a note to 25.4.6.1. Add the text 'These requirements are met by a Class D channel as specified in ISO/IEC 11801:2002.' to the end of subclause 40.1.

3. Delete Clause 13 Chromatic Dispersion specification. Action: Contact Steve Swanson to confirm it is correct to remove the chromatic dispersion specification from 10BASE-F.

4. Remove 10BASE-FP related change text.

Clause: 40, Annex 40A
Subclause:various
The use of Category 5/Class D is ambiguous in my opinion. ISO/IEC 11801:2002 Class D is equivalent to TIA/EIA Category 5e not Category 5 as this is no longer recognized by the TIA/EIA. The point is Clause 40 and Annex 40A still cause confusion by mixing references throughout the text. In the Rationale For Revision the author states: "At this point we should not have to rely on the national reference and the references to TIA-568 should be able to be removed." Yet we're adding the reference to ANSI/TIA/EIA-568-B:2001 and still referencing ANSI/TIA/EIA-568-A:1995 I guess my point is it seems like we're not really accomplishing the goal, but since I couldn't come up with a better way to do it I approve with a comment.
SuggestedRemedy
Remove the references to ANSI/TIA/EIA-568 completely and use ISO/IEC 11801 as was done in the note in Clause 14, subclause 4.1 (page 1080-2, line 47). This should be done throughout clause 40, and Annex 40A.
Also - a few text editing issues:
page 1080-4, line 23: replace Figure40-18 with Figure 40-18
page 1080-4, line 42: replace 1 00 , with 100 ,
page 1080-7, line 43: replace Fi gure40A-1 with Figure 40A-1
Response
REJECT.
While it would be possible today to now delete all references to anything other than 11801, the references to TIA/EIA specifications are being retained in order to clearly capture the installed based originally designed to these specification. See response to #29.
The editorial correction are ACCEPT.

CR 1080
Comment Type TR
These changes are unacceptable for two reasons.
The document puts at risk the ability of 1000BASE-T to claim broad market potential. While TIA 568A might be obsolete as a specification document, almost all enterprise campus sites have TIA 568A technology installed and most have installed Category 5 cabling according to TIA- 568A. As currently edited, the document bounces back and forth between references to TIA 568A and TIA 568B. It also bounces back and forth between references to ISO 11801:1995 and 11801:2002. The IEEE 802.3 document need to clearly support that 1000BASE-T operates on plants installed in the past according to TIA 568A or ISO 11801:1995 when such cabling plant also passes the additional parameters in TIA 568-B1 Annex D. Except for such statement about cabling installed
Second, violates the principle of being easy to understand and non-ambiguous because it makes references to both TIA 568A and 568B and to both ISO 11801:1995 and 11801:2002. More specifically, the document now introduces two very different definitions of Category 5 cabling one of which are contrary to the normal use of the term by users both in USA and outside USA where Category 5 is understood to be specified by TIA 568A. The document refers to Category 5 as defined in IAO/IEC 11801:1995 and Category 5 as defined in ISO 11801:2002.
SuggestedRemedy
Changes to Clause 40 need to clearly explain in context which ISO 11801 document is being referred to when the term "Category 5" is used. Old Category 5 is old Class D defined by 11801:1995. New Category 5 is new Class D and called Category 5e in TIA 568A and 568B and defined in ISO 11801:2002.
Clause 40 and Annex 40A need to clearly state that Category 5 cabling plants installed according to EIA/TIA 568A and ISO 11801:1195 before the publication of the EIA/TIA 568B and ISO 11801: 2002 support 1000BASE-T when tested for the additional performance parameters specified in TIA-568-B1 Annex D.
For example change First paragraph of Annex 40A lines 27ff to: Whether installing a new Category 5/Class D ISO 11801:2002 balanced cabling system or reusing a Category 5/Class D ISO 11801:1995 system that is already installed, it is highly recommended that the cabling systems be measured and certified before connecting 1000BASE-T equipment following the guidelines in ANSI/EIA/TIA 568-B1 Annex D.
Response
ACCEPT IN PRINCIPLE.
1. Change the last two lines of 40.1 '1000BASE-T signaling requires four pairs of balanced cabling, as specified in ISO/IEC 11801:1995 (Class D) and ANSI/EIA/TIA-568-A-1995 (Category 5), and tested for the additional performance parameters specified in ANSI/EIA/TIA-568-B1 Annex D.'
2. Delete the text 'These requirements are met by a Class D channel as specified in ISO/IEC 11801:2002.'
3. Add a new note 'NOTE-ISO/IEC11801:2002 provides a specification (Class D) for media that exceeds the minimum requirements of this standard.'
4 Change text in first paragraph of Annex 40A to read '1000BASE-T is designed to operate over 4-pair unshielded twisted-pair cabling systems that meet the requirements described in ANSI/TIA/EIA-568-A-1995 (Category 5) and ISO/IEC 11801:1995 (Class D), and the additional . . .'

CR 1080
Comment Type E
Page:354 of IEEE 802.3,1998
The present standard uses non-optimal reference to a fiber specification in first sentence of designated clause. What is needed is a cable specification. ISO/IEC11801 is an appropriate cable specification unto itself. ISO/IEC11801 references this fiber specification within its cable specification. So if ISO/IEC11801 is referenced, it becomes redundant to reference the same fiber specifications in clause 15. ISO/IEC11801:2002 is the latest edition, and cables meeting this edition are compliant with the specifications of clause 15. ISO/IEC11801:2002 obsoletes its 1995 edition, making it the preferred reference. However, in the context of clause 15, the specifications for identified fiber-type have not changed. So no cable plant compliant to clause 15 of the presently published 802.3 standard will become obsolete by updating the reference to the 2002 edition.
SuggestedRemedy
Change the first sentence to read:
"The optical medium requirements are satisfied by the 62.5/125 µm nominal diameter fiber specified in ISO/IEC11801:2002 with the exceptions noted in 15.3.1.1 to 15.3.1.4."

The note regarding attenuation uses non-optimal reference to fiber specification, IEC 60793-2:1992. What is needed is a cable specification. ISO/IEC11801 is an appropriate cable specification unto itself. ISO/IEC11801 references this fiber specification within its cable specification. So if ISO/IEC11801 is referenced, it becomes redundant to reference the same fiber specifications in clause 15. ISO/IEC11801:2002 is the latest edition, and cables meeting this edition are compliant with the specifications of clause 15. ISO/IEC11801:2002 obsoletes its 1995 edition and is therefore preferred. However in the context of clause 15, the specifications for the identified fiber-type have not changed. So no cable plant compliant to clause 15 of the presently published 802.3 standard will become obsolete by updating the reference to the 2002 edition.
SuggestedRemedy: Change the note to read: "NOTE - This value of attenuation is a relaxation of the standard ISO/IEC11801:2002."
Response
REJECT.
We wish to continue to include the direct refernce to ISO/IEC 60793 so that the reader does not have to go through two levels of references to find the fibre specification.

Q: The rational for revision includes the text 'The definition of ReceiveFrame function is flawed.' without further explanation. To allow us to progress this request further please could provide an explanation of this statement.
A: This is a minor point, and by itself I would not have bothered with it. My objection was to the use of the term "primitive" for a function in Pascal. In the context of 802.3, we typically use this term for service interfaces between sublayers only. Which reminds me that there is one more revision request that I need to submit for the definition of "primitive in clause 1. This came up during the recirculation of 802.3ae/D4.2.

al thea logic equations for the exit conditions from the above state are missing parentheses and can therefore be interpreted incorrectly by implementors. If you just follow the binary logic arithmetic rules for these equations, the result will clearly not be the one that was intended by this standard.

The rational for the change to the ReceiveFrame function will be changed to read 'The exit conditions from state WAIT FOR TRANSMISSION COMPLETION in Figure 31B-2 is missing parentheses so can be interpreted incorrectly.'.

In response to the action item the following question was e-mailed to Shimon:
Q - There was a concern that a PONs OLT (Head End PHY) will not receive a continuously signal and therefore require the ability to utilize a local clock when an incoming signal is not present. Based on this do you still wish to proceed with this request ?
A - Yes, I do. The issue is not whether a local clock reference is used or not, but rather how often the switching between the two clocks is done. The specifications in clauses 22 and 35 allows to do this clock switching on a frame-by-frame basis, and is therefore very tight. This is only necessary for 10BASE-T, where the line will go quiet during the IPG between frames. For EPONs the line will go quiet between slot times when one ONU shuts down its laser and before another one turns it on. This will result in temporary loss of link at the OLT. However, the OLT can easily do the switching between the clock sources well within the guardband that the system will provide. My suggested text will still apply in this case.

CR 1090
Comment Type T
The revision requests asks for a change to the text for RX_CLK. I think that this change may require the removal of tPERIOD for RX_CLK from Table 35-8.
SuggestedRemedy
Remove tPERIOD for RX_CLK from Table 35-8.
Response
REJECT.
This value only specifies a minimum and this minimum is still in force.

CR 1090
Comment Type T
The sentence "Transitions from nominal clock to recovered clock or from recovered clock to nominal clock shall not decrease the time between adjacent edges of RX_CLK." seems ambiguous or unnecessarily strict, demanding that the phase adjustment process must always proceed by slowing the clock momentarily, whereas PLL implementations could pull the clock faster, but by very moderate amounts. We discussed a similar issue in 802.3ae. For example, 51.7.2 XSBI PMA_RX_CLK Specification: "During the transitions, the PMA_RX_CLK pulse width shall not be less than the minimum that is calculated by the period times the duty cycle as defined in Table 51-10 and Table 51-12."
SuggestedRemedy
Should you say "Transitions from nominal clock to recovered clock or from recovered clock to nominal clock shall not decrease the period, or time between adjacent edges, of RX_CLK below the limits specified in Table 35-8."?
Response
ACCEPT.

CR 1090
Comment Type TR
The changes eliminate the maximum time a clock can be stretched (line 48). When a PHY chip switches from recovered to nominal clock source for RX_CLK it can have an effect on MAC operation if clock edges do not continue for extended periods. It is possible that a design per the current GMII text could fail if clock transitions do not resume within the maximum two clock periods previously specified.
SuggestedRemedy
Add to the end of the sentence on line 40:
", and shall not increase the time between adjacent edges of RX_CLK more than twice the nominal clock period."
Change PICS SF4 Value/Comment (p.4, l.16) to read:
"No decrease of period between adjacent edges of RX_CLK."

No increase greater than two nominal clock periods between adjacent edges of RX_CLK ."

CR 1091
Comment Type T
We should review 802.3ae for the necessary change. As far as I scanned, there are several 'error rate' phrases in 802.3ae.
SuggestedRemedy
We should review 802.3ae for the necessary change.
Response
ACCEPT.
The are a number of instances in Clause 50 and the associated Clause 30 MIB attributes.

CR 1091
Comment Type T
A few of these actually could be rates. Some should be left alone in clauses no longer maintained.
SuggestedRemedy
The first instance of "error rates" in 12.5.3.2.6 should not be changed because bullets b and c are rates, not ratios.
27.1.2.1 No need to change this one.
38.6.8 Bit Error Rate Test: usage varies and it doesn't matter here. As 38.6.8 copied FC-PH which used 'rate', it isn't worth breaking into clause 38 for this alone.
41.1.2.1 No need to change this one.
Decide if you are putting the policy of request 1098 into operation; if so, need not change 8, 11, 12, 23 & 32 anyway.
Response
ACCEPT IN PRINCIPLE.
Since the policy isn't yet in place for the deprecated Clauses the proposed changes for these will stand.

D2.0 Comments:

CR 1095
Comment Type TR
We should not adopt changes based on other draft.
SuggestedRemedy
We should reconsider the change request after 802a is finalized and approved.
Response
REJECT.
IEEE P802a is currently in Sponsor ballot and should be approved prior to IEEE P802.3aj starting Sponsor ballot. If there is a delay with IEEE P802a we will remove this change during the IEEE P802.3aj Sponsor ballot.
In addition this change was submitted in response to a comment submitted against IEEE P802a by an IEEE P802.3 voter.
We do feel it is appropriate for one IEEE P802 draft to reference another draft that has Sponsor ballot and this has been done in the past.

CR 1095
Comment Type E
The proposed text should be added as a note. In checking for normative references, an overlooked obsolete reference was also noticed (yes this is stretching the scope of the change request).
SuggestedRemedy
Add to end of 3.2.6:
"NOTE -- Clause 12 of IEEE P 802a (an amendment to IEEE Std 802) defines a set of Type values and associated mechanisms for use in prototype and vendor-specific protocol development."
Add normative reference to 1.3 (should be updated by IEEE editor before publication of 802.3aj):
"IEEE P 802a(TM)/D2 (May 28, 2000), Draft Standard for Local and Metropolitan Area Networks--Overview and Architecture--Amendment 1: Ethertypes for prototype and vendor-specific protocol development.6"
Errata noticed while generating comment.
Missed updating normative reference in 802.3-2002: "IEEE Std 802.1Q-1998,IEEE Standard for Local and Metropolitan Area Networks: Virtual Bridged Local Area Networks."
Typo in footnote 7 on page 9 of 802.3-2002 "IEFT" should be "IETF"

IEEE P802.3 Maintenance Interim meeting 04-Oct-02
During the meeting it became apparent that there was a maintenance change that would change a deprecated Clause which it did not seem to be appropriate - if the Clause is deprecated there should be no further changes to it. The maintenance changes was therefore edited to removed the change to the deprecated clause and this new request was raised to add the text 'As of the 802.3-2002 edition no further maintenance changes are being considered.' to each of the deprecated Clauses.

Rejected52.14.14 - Connector specifications24-Oct-02


IEEE 802.3 Maintenance plenary week meeting 12-Nov-02
On review of IEEE Std. 802.3ae-2002, 10Gb/s Ethernet it was found that while the proposed new text was of course not present in subclause 52.14.14 nor 53.14.3 it was already published in IEEE Std.802.3ae-2002 in subclause 1.3 Normative reference where IEC 61753-022-2 is listed. The specific text reads as follows (note that 2 is a footnote.):

+-----

1.3 Normative references

[snip]

IEC 61753-022-2, Performance standard - Part 022-2: Fibre optic connectors terminated on multimode fibre for Category C - Controlled environment.2

[snip]

2 IEC 61753-022-2 is under development and not available at this time. Its anticipated publication date is April 2003. Until the IEC standard is available, users are encouraged to reference ANSI/TIA/EIA-568-B.3-2000 in its place.

-----+

It was pointed out that this footnote was added to one of the later drafts to address the concern you were raising.

Since it is the policy of IEEE P802.3 to reference International Standard in preference to National Standards, the reference to the IEC specification in the body of the text, and a footnote to reference the ANSI/TIA/EIA specification in the Normative References subclause, was believed to be the appropriate editorial structure in this case. Based on this, and the belief that the present text satisfied the 'Rational for Revision' in the request, the proposed resolution was to reject these requests as they would add duplicate text.

This resolution was approved at the IEEE P802.3 Closing Plenary on Thursday 14th November 2002.

The suggested change adds unnecessary complexity. We fully discussed the possibility of this option during the development of the standard and decided not to include it. It provides no additional utility as the PMD and PCS are always provided as a pair.
Sugested Remedy:
Do not make the change in this maintenance request.
Response:
ACCEPT.

The change request 1113 is withdrawn by the submitter and will be removed from the package.

D1.0 Comment:

Comment: #27
Comment Type: T
Comment:
The change request to remove the requirement for "uniform" random for the ||A|| code for 8b/10b encoding needs to be rejected. There were good reasons during the draft development for this requirement. One reason that I seem to remember was to spread out the EMI energy that is present over a broader spectrum. This requirement is still valid.
Removing this text could mean that two numbers which are "random" would meet the requirements.
Simply because implementations have not followed the standard is not a good reason to then change the standard.
If I was to be present at the Ottawa meeting, I would make this disapproval a TR.
SuggestedRemedy:
Do not change the draft. Perhaps more clarifying text is needed.
Response:
REJECT
The normative state machine in Clause 48 will not produce a uniform random distribution of ||A||'s. It will however produce a good enough pseudo random non uniform distribution to spread the spectrum (see taborek_1_0500.pdf).

The revision request includes a note that states:

Why are there 11 unused bits and a 9-bit final code value? Other approaches could be:
1) Maximal: Define the remaining 20 bits as dependent bits.
2) Uniform: Define 16 bits as dependent bits.
3) Minimal: Define 8 bits as dependent bits.
Regardless of this or other choices, the meanings of these unused bits should be clearly specified.

The definition of these bits will need to be determined and explained prior to this request moving forward to ballot.

D1.0 Comment:

Comment: #107
Comment Type:T
Comment:
While the new text and figure provides an excellent illustration of Message code #5, the current descriptive text is also useful and should not be removed. In addition the current new proposed text supplied in change request 1121 only places a shall on the use of message code 0x005 and places no shall on the four user codes.
SuggestedRemedy:
1. Add editing instruction to the text supplied in change request 1121 that read 'Insert the following text at the end of subclause 28C.6.'
2. Delete the first sentence of the new paragraph supplied in change request 1121 as this is a duplication of the first sentence of the current text.
3. In the last sentence of the current paragraph change the text 'The fourth and final ...' to read 'The fifth and final ...'.
Response:
ACCEPT IN PRINCIPLE.
The first instance of 'fourth' should be changed to 'third'. The second instance of 'fourth' is correct.

Comment: #108
Comment Type:T
Comment:
The text uses the example '... the manufacture-selected extension identifier for a given component is 101100011.'. Apart from this being only 9 bits when the filed is 20 bits, these 20 bits are not a manufacture-selected extension but instead is a 'user-defined user code value this is specific to the OUI transmitted'.
In addition since this value is indeed a user-defined user code associated to the OUI transmitted I don't think we need to define the bit order - it is the owner of the OUI that does that. While I don't think there are any implementations out there that use Message code #5, I'm not too sure that we need to defined the bit order here to ensure inter-operability - only the format of the OUI need be defined for inter-operability. If we do choose to defined the bit order of these 20 bits aren't we constraining the use of Message code #5 more than it has been in the past.
Assuming however that we are going to choose to define the bit order for this field the text related to the example needs to be updated to match the fugure.
SuggestedRemedy:
Suggest that the text '... the manufacture-selected extension identifier for a given component is 101100011.' be changed to read '... the user-defined user code associated to the OUI is 11001110000011111100.'.
Response:
ACCEPT.

Comment: #105
Comment Type:E
Comment:
The figure number, and the reference to it are incorrect. The Figure number should be 28C-1 (not 28.1) and the reference to it on line 24 should be corrected to match this.
SuggestedRemedy:
Correct figure number and reference.
Response:
ACCEPT.

Comment: #166
Comment Type:TR
Comment:
I agree that this text is confusing, since 9.1 of Std
802-2001 describes the OUI as consisting of 3 octets and not a 24-bit field. I'm not sure what the MSB really means without using the same terminology used in 802-2001.
However, I think the example provided by Dr. James is just as confusing. The "manufacturer-selected extension identifier" used in the example, "101100011" does not match anything in Figure 28.1 (though I think this figure should be labeled Figure 28C-1).
SuggestedRemedy:
I would prefer to see this request rejected than to swap one level of confusion with another. I'm not sure if I'm simply missing something or if there's an error in the example.
If nothing else is done, I would recommend correcting the text that already resides in 28C.6 by replacing "fourth user" in the next to last sentence with "third user code".
If a clear example can be provided in subsequent circulations, I would not be against flipping my vote on this request.
Response:
ACCEPT IN PRINCIPLE.

While the new text and figure provides an excellent illustration of Message code #6, the current descriptive text is also useful and should not be removed. In addition the current new proposed text supplied in change request 1122 only places a shall on the use of message code 0x006
and places no shall on the four user codes.
Instead of replacing the current text the new text and figure supplied in change request 1122 should be used to supplement and clarify the current text.
SuggestedRemedy:
1. Add editing instruction to the text supplied in change request 1122 that read 'Insert the following text at the end of subclause 28C.7.'
2. Delete the first sentence of the new paragraph supplied in change request 1122 as this is a duplication of the first sentence of the current text.
Response:
ACCEPT IN PRINCIPLE.
This is duplicating the mapping of the OUI into the register bits found in 22.2.4.3.1. The mapping of the regsiter bits found in 22.2.4.3.1 to Message code #6 is already clearly defined in subclause 28C.7. Placing this mapping in two places could be confusing. Based on this we will not merge the text from CR1122 into the draft and will remove CR1122 from the package.

This figure is very different from the one recommended in Request 1121 as a change to 28C.6. It might be a good example but the two figures need to match.

Comment:
In fixing the original error, I asked that 'lane 0' be replaced by 'bit 0'. My bad, the original actually had 'lane zero', and the editors changed the text to 'bit zero'. To be consistent with other similar formats (e.g. MM32 through MM42), where the bits are designated by numeric, rather than textual, values, I suggest that the original remedy be completed, i.e. the former 'lane zero' now changed to 'bit zero' be changed to 'bit 0' .
SuggestedRemedy:
In 45.5.5.3, MM31, replace 'bit zero' by 'bit 0'
Response:
ACCEPT IN PRINCIPLE.

Comment:
Add the following entry to the end of the table found in subclause 45.5.4.4:"
There does not appear to be any subclause 45.5.4.4 (not in part 1 section 4, or in part 2), but the instructions do not seem to demand the addition of one. The entry item to be added (the '*ODB' line) could rationally (imho) be added to the end of the Table in clause 45.5.5.1, which does refer to the signaling format on the MDIO and MDC lines, which is the topic at issue here.
SuggestedRemedy:
Add the '*ODB' item to end of Table in 45.5.5.1 instead. If it is necessary to change it to an 'SF4' item, change the reference in the EC7 item in 45.5.5.16 also to the same, as by replacing
!ODB:M by !SF4:M.
Response:
ACCEPT IN PRINCIPLE.
The item '*ODB' should be added to the end of the table in subclause 45.5.4.3 'Major capabilities/options' as it is an option.
The new item 'EC7' is still correct.

IEEE 802.3 Maintenance plenary week meeting 14-Nov-06
two changes:

1. Parsing fix

In lines 26-30 of the current request, change:

Additionally, a special Variable Container with Variable Branch and Leaf values corresponding to an object identification number (such as 7/330 for a PME ID, or 7/282 for an EPON LLID) may be used in a Variable Request OAMPDU to select a particular instance of a managed object of which multiple instances exist in the remote MIB.

to:

Additionally, a special Variable Container with Variable Branch and Leaf values corresponding to an object identification number (such as 7/330 for a PME ID, or 7/282 for an EPON LLID), Variable Width equal to 2, and Variable Value equal to a 2-octet identification number, may be used in a Variable Request OAMPDU to select a particular instance of a managed object of which multiple instances exist in the remote MIB.

Reason for change:
Note that the identification attributes such as PME_ID and Link_ID are defined as INTEGERs and hence have a length of 32 bits. This means that the width field in the variable container would normally be set to 4 (octets). This introduces an ambiguity with respect to variable descriptors requesting a package (branch value = 4). To avoid all confusion, the Variable Width should not coincide with the branch values that could be found in a descriptor (object = 3, package = 4, attribute = 7). We propose to mandate a variable width of 2 octets. As a result, the total length of the descriptor would become 6 octets. A parser that does not implement the changes proposed in this maintenance request would parse this container as two descriptors of 3 octets each, the second one of which is certain to be discarded as garbage because of an illegal "branch value"; the receiving parser remains in sync with the subsequent descriptors and remains in a valid state.

2. Remove reference to identification number '0'

In lines 38-46 of the current request, change:

If no explicit instance selection has taken place, the instance corresponding to identification number '0' is presumed to be addressed.
If the Variable Width field is set to 0xFF in an instance selector, all instances of the concerned object are addressed. Each subsequent Variable Descriptor shall be understood to consecutively target the attributes of all existing instances until an other instance selector is received or the Variable Request OAMPDU ends.

to:

If no explicit instance selection has taken place, all instances of the concerned object are addressed.
In this case, each subsequent Variable Descriptor shall be understood to consecutively target the attributes of all existing instances until an instance selector is received or the Variable Request OAMPDU ends.

Reason for change: there is no way of knowing that the identification number '0' is effectively assigned to any of the instances of the desired object.

This Maintenance Request was received by the deadline for consideration at the March 2014 meeting. There was no objection to discussing it at this meeting as it wass related to a P802.3bm Working Group ballot comment. It was agreed that the proposed resolution could be enhanced to provide additional information to the user and should be inserted as a NOTE instead of a footnote.

Motion #3: Suggested response to IEEE P802.3bm/D2.0 comment #31:
Add the followinga note to the end of 22.2.4.3.1 and 45.2.1.3:
“NOTE – The use of only 22 bits of the OUI as described here has been deprecated by the IEEE Registration Authority. The definition of vendor specific device identifiers for other applications is expected to use the full 24 bits to accommodate the use of either an OUI or Company ID.”
