Below are some highlights of active projects from committee meetings during the third quarter of 2019. For a comprehensive list of the latest updates from IEEE, TIA, and ISO committees, go to Leviton.com/ns/standards.
100 Gb/s and 400 Gb/s over Single-Mode Fiber at 100 Gb/s per Wavelength. Draft 2.0 was circulated following the January 2020 meeting, with comments to be reviewed during a series of teleconference calls in March and April 2020. The target publication date is December 2020. This standard supports 100 Gb/s (single wavelength) or 400 Gb/s (4 wavelength) operations over single mode optical fiber for distances up to 10 kilometers.
High Efficiency WLAN (Wi-Fi 6). Comment resolution for Draft 6.0 will continue during a series of teleconference calls in March and April 2020. The target publication date is November 2020. This standard supports wireless Ethernet operations in the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz frequency bands, with a maximum data rate of 10 Gb/s.
