LA JOLLA, CA. -- The 10 Gigabit Ethernet Alliance announced that the IEEE P802.3ae Task Force approved the core content of the 10 Gigabit Ethernet Standard last week during meetings held in La Jolla, California. The approval covers all of the major logic elements and media access for single mode fiber-based LAN and WAN PHYs (physical layer devices), including Media Access Control (MAC), the Physical Coding Sublayer (PCS), 10 Gigabit Media Independent (XGMII) and other optional interfaces, management and the various Physical Medium Dependent (PMD) interfaces. The IEEE P802.3ae Task Force expects to select a multimode fiber PMD(s) at its next meeting in Boston in September 2000.
