[802SEC] IEEE P802.3 draft ICAID - IEEE 802.3 New Ethernet Applications Industry Connections Activity Initiation Document (ICAID)

Dear EC members,

Please find below the required information in respect to the submission of the IEEE 802.3 New Ethernet Applications Industry Connections Activity Initiation Document (ICAID) for consideration at the 4th August 2020 IEEE 802 EC teleconference meeting if the current motion to address consideration of July ICAIDs <> passes.

Thanks and best regards,


[1] Draft Industry Connections Activity Initiation Document (ICAID):

Draft ICAID: <>

[2] Explanatory background material:

The growing diversity of applications for Ethernet, including new application areas, is driving the development of a multitude of new standards to be developed. Recent examples of standardization activities that utilized the current New Ethernet Applications Industry Connections ICAID include Lower cost, short reach, optical interconnects based on 100 Gb/s wavelengths, Precision Time Protocol (PTP) Timestamping clarifications, Automotive Optical Multigig, Next steps in Single-Pair ecosystem, 100 Gb/s over Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM) systems, 400 Gb/s over DWDM systems, and developing a study group proposal for Automotive 10G+ Copper. Additional activities include the industry-wide Ethernet bandwidth assessment which has spawned interest in the IEEE 802.3 Ethernet Working Group working towards consensus building for a Beyond 400G study group. This topic area may fuel the continuing expansion of the Ethernet family through other new standards efforts. The goal of this activity is to assess requirements for new Ethernet-based applications, identify gaps not currently addressed by IEEE 802.3 standards, and facilitate building industry consensus towards proposals to initiate new standards development efforts.

[3] Status of the development of the ICAID:

The draft ICAID responses are pending IEEE 802.3 Working Group approval at the 23rd July 2020 IEEE 802.3 meeting.
