I am chairing the IEEE 802.3 New Ethernet Applications ad hoc, which has an activity underway that is looking at doing an update to the IEEE 802.3 Ethernet Bandwidth Assessment (see published in 2012.

Please note that this effort will focus on gathering information throughout 2019 that will enable an evaluation of the future bandwidth needs of various Ethernet wireline applications.  If anyone has any information that they believe is pertinent to this assessment that they would like to share, please contact me.

The webpage for the new Bandwidth Assessment Ad hoc is

The ad hoc wrote a request for information that can be found at

Please note that you don’t need to attend an IEEE 802.3 meeting to present this data, it can be done via teleconference.
