Dear EC members,

Please find below the comments and responses in respect to the draft IEEE P802.3bt PAR extension request. The updated draft PAR extension request can be accessed as follows. In addition, as the result of our own review of the IEEE P802.3bt CSD (grandfathered 5C), a change has been made with respect to existing 2-pair PoE being specified in Clause 33 and the new 4-pair PoE in Clause 145. The updated CSD (grandfathered 5C), with change marks, can be accessed at the as follows.

Best regards,

Updated IEEE P802.3bt draft PAR extension request: <>
IEEE P802.3bt draft modified CSD (grandfathered 5C): <>


Why two years?  If the expected completion date is May 2018, that leaves 6 months cushion. Providing an explanation for the need for the extra year may be warranted.

ACCEPTED: The number of years that the extension is being requested for has been changed to one.


Does this group really not meet via Teleconference?

ACCEPTED: While the IEEE P802.3bt Task Force itself only meets in person, there are a number of IEEE P802.3bt Task Force Ad Hocs that meet by teleconference 10 times a year. Based on this the response to item 3.3 in respect to teleconferences has been updated to 10.
