Re: Cross Talk

Yair, let me put my 2 cents into this one.  As we go through detailed
analyses we will see a number of specific noise contributors that may be
unique for our application.  We certainly need to understand that these
individual contributors to noise are properly bounded within our overall
noise margin.  Based on this requirement, the issues you have raised are
important ones to evaluate.

We must then look at these noise sources and compare them to the uncounted
contributors that are external to our application, such as noisy flourescent
ballasts, and cheap electric pencil sharpeners.  Our challenge is that we
are building on a standard (100BASE-T) that does not have an explicit budget
for external noise.  We must develop an approach which may be based on
analysis, measurement, or a combination of the two, that gives us confidence
that our application will work at the required bit error rate.  This issue
is central to the concerns that the Mid-Span powering Ad-Hoc is addressing.
