This is continuation of my previous posts here.
I did a lot of research, but I have a problem finding one thing: Is auto-negotiation mandatory on 1000BaseX (i.e 1000BaseSX) interfaces? (in other words, should every 1000BaseX interface support auto-negotiation function))
I did a search through a lot of annexes of 802.3 standard (from 2004, 2005, 2006) but I can't find any sentence that actually says: Auto-negotiation function MUST be supported by every 1000BaseX
If you guys have any link to any documents that shows me autonegotiation function requirements, I would be more than thankful.
