Re: (SSIG) Taking the winning route

Vipul, Rob,

It should be pointed out that a Serial 850nm solution only partially meets one
HSSG distance/cable plant objective: 300m on MMF. However, this MMF must be the
new, enhanced MMF. The Serial 850nmsolution addresses no SMF objectives

WWDM meets all HSSG MMF objectives as well as SMF objectives to 10km.

I agree with Vipul's choice of 3 PMDs as the best possible PMD set to address
HSSG HSSG distance/cable plant objectives.    
Best Regards,
