OIF has created a new track in the PLL for module management. This group has previously developed the C-CMIS specification and has started two new projects recently to transition CMIS into the OIF and add CMIS enhancements for co-packaging. Future updates to CMIS for Fiber Channel are in the early stages and additions to support 800ZR will follow. The team is also continuing to discuss the future of management interfaces and looking at addressing the management of more complex modules with object based/message based solutions in the future.
