For the first time, we now have the opportunity to refine the parameters that control bit performance in our own backyard.
As in the I-P-P-P case, the proposed algorithms not only control bit rates more accurately but achieve higher coding gain compared with the JM rate control algorithm.
Instead, it is being parcelled up into bite-sized pieces and handed over to private control bit by bit.
The module will respond to both rate select pin and control bit inputs, which simplifies Fibre Channel host auto-negotiation algorithms, layout and software.
shows, the data bits are swapped if and only if the control bit is set; the control bit itself is never changed.

Long mode is enabled by a global control bit called LMA (for Long Mode Active).
The network control bit is always 1 when customer data is being sent in that channel so that the customer can send as many consecutive zeros as wanted and the average ones density in that channel will be no less than one in eight no matter what the customer sends.
