Standards development within the Information Technology sector is harmonized with international standards development. Through the CSA Technical Committee on Information Technology (TCIT), Canadians serve as the Canadian Advisory Committee (CAC) on ISO/IEC Joint Technical Committee 1 on Information Technology (ISO/IEC JTC1) for the Standards Council of Canada (SCC), the ISO member body for Canada and sponsor of the Canadian National Committee of the IEC. Also, as a member of the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), Canada participates in the International Telegraph and Telephone Consultative Committee (ITU-T).
At the time of publication, ISO/IEC 14165-114:2005 is available from ISO and IEC in English only. CSA will publish the French version when it becomes available from ISO and IEC.
This International Standard was reviewed by the CSA TCIT under the jurisdiction of the Strategic Steering Committee on Information Technology and deemed acceptable for use in Canada. (A committee membership list is available on request from the CSA Project Manager.) From time to time, ISO/IEC may publish addenda, corrigenda, etc. The CSA TCIT will review these documents for approval and publication. For a listing, refer to the CSA Information Products catalogue or CSA Info Update or contact a CSA Sales representative. This Standard has been formally approved, without modification, by the Technical Committee and has been approved as a National Standard of Canada by the Standards Council of Canada.
This International Standard describes a physical interface for Fibre Channel that is based on and adds to ISO/IEC 14165-115. It specifies a Medium Dependent Interface for 1000BASETX2/4 PHY layers as defined in ISO/IEC 7498-1 together with the consequences for the physical layer and the MAC (TBI) Interface. Scrambling, coding and modulation necessary to provide a bit error rate of 10-12 or less are specified. This standard also specifies the requirements for the medium (transmission channel). These requirements are within the minimum performance of a dedicated balanced Class F channel (in general made of up to 100 m Class F balanced (twisted pair) cabling, as specified in ISO/IEC 11801:2002). This International Standard supports full duplex transmission with a signalling rate of 1 062,5 Mbit/s.
This International Standard provides a low-complexity Media Independent Interface and the functional description of an Ethernet physical layer for 100 MB/s transmission that can easily be implemented by many vendors. This standard takes advantage of the improved transmission characteristics provided by balanced cabling channels of Class F, as specified in ISO/IEC 11801:2002.
