Re: Subject: Survey of lengths of installed optical fiber cable


Your comment was my understanding.  I have since gotten the idea that perhaps 10GbE might be able to replace all of the proprietary
interfaces with a common commodity interface.  From the comment that Cory McCormick made, putting in new fiber for the higher
bandwidth was not an issue.  This leaves the members of the TF with the question: Do they want to standardize on a very short reach
interface to give 10GbE the opportunity to consolidate all of the high bandwidth intra facility connections between same vendor
equipment as well as different vendor equipment?  There may be as much of an immediate market for 10GbE VSR as there is for 10GbE
WAN.  This may something to revisit at the meeting in two weeks.

Thank you,
Roy Bynum
