Title: RE: What is 802.3ae WAN-PHY?


Thanks for the reply. It's important to keep in mind that SONET signals will be
carried as clients of the OTN and that the only clients defined to date are
OC-48 & OC-192 rates. So not only will our 10GE WAN PHY operate over today's
SONET infrastructure, it is also guaranteed to run over the future OTN. Any
non-SONET, non-OC-48/192 based proposal for the WAN PHY is gambling on the
definition of a new client signal in ITU.
