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
already underway. 

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.

	Shortwave advocates,

	I contacted a couple of people about support of the TIA FO 2.2.1
group and
	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
of 2.2.1,
	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
important to
	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
