[802.3_100GNGOPTX] Objectives Passed

Dear Participants,

For those who may not have been able to attend our meeting this week, it was a very successful week.

We now have 100 Gb/s optical objectives! We are also set to adopt a 40G ER objective pending EC approval of our SG name being changed.

Thanks go out to all of the participants in our meeting. From the many presentations, to the polite and professional discussion, we were able to achieve a significant set of results. Included are those who have contributed, but could not attend this week.

We still have a lot of work to do, but we are on track to submit a PAR in July.

Best Regards (and aloha!)
