Re: (SSIG) Taking the winning route

850nm VCSELs for 10 GE require customers to deploy new high-bandwdith MMF.
I would recommend that PMD solutions are based on installed base MMF or SMF.

Specifying a PMD that implies a brand new MMF infrastructure is not 
consistent with the goal of using existing technology wherever possible.

Of all the MM-fiber PMD proposals, only the 850nm serial VCSEL solution over the
new high-performance fibers has so far been shown to work under stressed systems
conditions, with Bit Error Rate measurements and careful analysis of the systems
impairments to support that, and working with VCSELs from many vendors.   The
suggestions below are highly puzzling to me...
