About This Item


Full Description


The scope of this project is to add a single-mode fiber Physical Medium Dependent (PMD) option for serial 40 Gb/s operation by specifying additions to, and appropriate modifications of, IEEE Std 802.3-2008 as amended by the IEEE P802.3ba project (and any other approved amendment or corrigendum).


This project will define a 40 Gb/s serial PMD that supports a link distance of at least 2km over single-mode fiber that is optically compatible with existing carrier 40Gb/s client interfaces (OTU3/STM-256/OC-768/40G Packet over SONET (POS)), which will enable interconnection between equipment in carrier networks or as uplink interconnections from enterprises, data centers, or other network operators into carrier networks.


Amendment Standard - Superseded. This amendment to IEEE Std 802.3-2008 specifies a new Physical Medium Dependent (PMD) sublayer, 40GBASE-FR, for serial 40Gb/s operation over up to 2 km of single-mode fiber.
