Draft PAR: <>
CSD responses: <>

[2] Explanatory technical background material:

The project is applicable to business and residential access environments. The project is needed to enable access network operators to provide advanced bandwidth-intensive services while reducing footprint of network equipment, simplifying service upgrades, reducing network upgrade cost, and reducing fiber deployment costs.

[3] Status of the development of the PAR:

The draft PAR and CSD responses are pending IEEE 802.3 Working Group approval at the November 2015 plenary.

Since the submission deadline for the 4th December 2015 NesCom meeting (16th October 2015) occurs prior to the date of the November IEEE 802 EC meeting, I have pre-submitted this draft PAR to NesCom on the understanding that:

[a] Any changes to the draft PAR text resulting from the Plenary will be promptly communicated to the NesCom Administrator.
[b] Should the IEEE 802.3 Working Group not approve the submission, it will be removed from the IEEE 802 LMSC Executive Committee and NesCom agenda.
[c] Should the IEEE 802 LMSC Executive Committee not approve the submission, it will be removed from the NesCom agenda.
