RE: SONET/Ethernet clock tolerance
I wanted to address the question below that you had in your email. I would
agree that XGENIE would not be required across a SONET/SDH infrastructure.
What if the infrastructure is not SONET/SDH? What if an infrastructure was
built over leased dark fiber that did not use SONET/SDH, but was 10G LAN
Ethernet? My assumption is that the WAN PHY SONET/SDH OAM&P works well when
connecting to a SONET/SDH photonic network infrastructure. If the network
infrastructure is not a SONET/SDH photonic network, then my assumption is
that the LAN PHY XGENIE OAM&P would be a nice addition.

The issue is: is it a worthwhile investment of effort to define an
capability that duplicates functionality that could be more quickly derived
existing, well-proven, SONET/SDH infrastructure?
