Re: [10GMMF] 10GMMF Connector loss budget - comment 187 to D2.0
Thank you, Jonathan. I really appreciate your follow-through on this assignment. Look's to me like we should just leave everything alone and not mess with the link budget or receiver test levels.

re comment 187 from Piers Dawe on connector loss
I think this is a reasonable summary of the task 2 work on connector
loss to date - please comment freely.
A couple of contributors have confirmed 0.5dB offset loss at 7um for a
23um OSL patchcord - I believe this would preclude a reduction of
connector loss budget for mode conditioning patchcord launches
But a centre launch would be expected to have no offset loss at 7um
offset, so there is up to 1dB of connector loss 'over-budgeted' for the
The question is how can or should this be included in the specification?
