RE: WAN PHY name

Title: RE: WAN PHY name


Please refer to Paul Bottorff's presentation:

which explains why the WAN-compatible PHY is desired vs an EoS approach.
There are networking benefits beyond simply the port card cost. Note that the
expected volumes for a 10GE interface will drive its cost far below that of a short
reach OC-192 port.

Regarding your last statement below, the whole point of the WAN-compatible PHY is
so it can be plugged into the installed base of OC-192 Regens/transponders - aka
'non-muxed ELTE' or 'active transponder' per the WAN PHY Definitions Ad Hoc work at:
