RE: Support of SW over HBW MMF
Jonathan and all,
I will be glad to be the organizer of such efforts, having already
volunteered for similar duties within the SSIG. Activity in this area is
What we are looking for is for more SWL transceiver companies to participate
in the TIA FO2.2 efforts to help define launch conditions for SWL
transmission on new HBW MMF. We have regular participation from three
transceiver companies. There are at least four more that could also
Please indicate your interest directly to me. I will provide details of
meeting times and other items.

Subject: Support of SW over HBW MMF
I contacted a couple of people about support of the TIA FO 2.2.1
haven't heard back. I may have made a tactical mistake by not using
For those of you that are not aware, at the New Mexico meeting, we
information from the chair of TIA FO 2.2.1 about a need for
support in order to complete restricted launch specifications on a
useful to P802.3ae.
Perhaps this is a little terse, but I read it this way: no support
then no high bandwidth multimode fiber (HBW MMF) for the standard.
I am under the assumption that this bandwidth improvement work is
to 850 nm operation only. I further assume that this work is
both SW WWDM (no, not the combination WWDM/PAM) and the SW Serial
for achievement of the 300 meter MMF objective.
So, who wants to organize the SW supporters and move this work
