RE: Support of SW over HBW MMF
I will support it all the way. However, due to my limited time, I may not
be able to organize it. I may try to help you to find a organizer, if no
one shows up to do it.

Subject: Support of SW over HBW MMF
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 this
For those of you that are not aware, at the New Mexico meeting, we received
information from the chair of TIA FO 2.2.1 about a need for additional
support in order to complete restricted launch specifications on a schedule
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 restricted
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 solutions
for achievement of the 300 meter MMF objective.
So, who wants to organize the SW supporters and move this work along?
