4.1.1. FEC Block Format

The length of the FEC block is 2112 bits. Each FEC block contains 32 rows of 65 bits each; 64 bits of payload and 1-bit transcoding overhead (T bits).

At the end of each block there is 32-bit overhead or parity check bits. Transmission is from left to right within each row, and from top to bottom between rows. The payload bits carry the information symbols from the PCS layer.
