ATLANTA, Jan. 15, 2015  — IEEE, the world’s largest professional organization dedicated to advancing technology for humanity, announced the formation of a new working group under the IEEE 802.3 team. The new working group will be drafting a standard that is intended to support Gigabit transmission over Plastic Optical Fiber in key markets like automotive, Professional and Home Networking.

The proposed IEEE 802.3bv new working group  “Gigabit Ethernet over Plastic Optical Fiber” is intended to specify operation over at least 15 meters of POF in automotive environments and 50 meters for Professional and Home networking applications. It will support full duplex operation with a data rate of 1000 Mb/s at the MAC/PLS service interface. The bit error ratio will be better than or equal to 10-12 at the same service interface. Finally, optional Energy-Efficient Ethernet specification will be delivered too.

The group is actively seeking participants for the development of these standards. For more information on the IEEE 802.3bv working group, please visit this page

In standards development, the IEEE-SA offers the flexibility of either individual- or entity-based methods. In the individual method, participants are individual persons representing themselves, and each individual participant has one vote. Standards developed via the entity method are balloted using a “one-entity, one-vote” principle, allowing corporations, government agencies, academic institutions, nonprofits and industry associations to come together in collaboration to advance innovation.

Live Demonstration of Optical networking solutions for the World’s Top Automotive Brands

 automotiveEthernetCongress

MADRID, Jan. 15, 2015  — At the 2015 Automotive Ethernet Congress, KDPOF, a global innovation leader in semiconductor solutions for optical communications, will showcase its full line of automotive connectivity technologies, including its Plastic Optical Fiber Automotive Ethernet portfolio and solutions for Broadcomm´s BroadR-Reach® bridging. KDPOF’s automotive integrated circuits (ICs) are driving disruptive innovation throughout the industry, providing the technology required to deliver advanced driver safety and infotainment features to a broad spectrum of vehicles. For more news, visit KDPOF´s  Newsroom.

Industry analysts predict 100 percent of new cars to be Internet-enabled by 2025, an industry revolution that will redefine the driving experience. As a result of the significant increase in volume and complexity of in-car electronics, demand for connectivity solutions that offer low-cost, high speed transmission and bandwidth is on the rise. Collision warnings, comfort controls, infotainment and advanced driver assistance are just some of today’s sophisticated features enabled by KDPOF´s  technology.

Congress attendees can experience live demonstrations of the following KDPOF´s automotive connectivity products:

  • KDPOF´s POF Based Gigabit and 100 Mbps PHY Automotive Ethernet technology, allows multiple in-vehicle systems (such as infotainment, on-board diagnostics and automated driver assistance) to simultaneously access information over step Index Plastic Optical fiber cabling. By eliminating cumbersome, shielded and unshielded copper cabling, automotive manufacturers can significantly reduce weight and EMC issues while maintaining the demonstrated reliability of optical links.
  • KDPOF´s POF/Copper enabled switch reference design, enables a switched topology in the future car with the possibility to interconnect different Ethernet compatible network protocols like Broadcom´s proprietary BroadR-Reach® running at 100 Mbps and Gigabit enabled protocols like 1000BASE-T, 1000BASE-FX or Gigabit POF. Thanks to KDPOF´s switch reference design, automotive customers will enjoy the flexibility to select the best network alternative for each domain of the vehicle among low (100 Mbps) and high (1000 Mbps) speeds and copper (shielded or unshielded) or POF media while keeping a unique star-based topology.

Beijing March 31st 2014

The IEEE 802.3 Ethernet Working Group plenary has authorized formation of a Study Group to develop a Project Authorization Request (PAR) and Criteria for Standards Development (CSD) document for Gigabit Ethernet over Plastic Optical Fiber.

This is the first step towards the standardization of 1 Gbps over POF as part of the Ethernet set of technologies. The motion was supported by engineering experts belonging to major companies around the Ethernet equipment and technologies market which see the 1 Gbps over POF technology as a promising new Ethernet physical layer on markets like Automotive, Home and SOHO networks and Industrial environments.

The Study Group will review the broad market potential and the technical and economical feasibility of the technology and will apply for the next step in the standardization process which is the creation of the Working Group. The WG will work on the standard creation.

The Call For Interest presentation can be found here.
