18.104.22.168.7. 100G Ethernet with Aggregated FEC
This use case is implemented in the case of multi-lane protocols like 100GbE, for example. This uses four transceiver lanes of 25 Gbps each, where all four lanes use the same FEC block. There is an inherent dependency between channels in this configuration as described in Master-Slave Configuration: Option 1 section. However, for applications like 100 GbE, dependency is acceptable and sometimes required.
