RE: Nomenclature poll...
I prefer option 2. Keeping the wavelength designators next to each other is
a logical progression. Inherent in your example is the rule that no <# of
wavelengths> designator is needed for single wavelength solutions. Is this

Assuming that we go with 10GBASE- instead of 10kBASE-, which suffix
structure does everyone prefer:
1) <wavelength> <coding scheme> <# of wavelengths>, or
2) <wavelength> <# of wavelengths> <coding scheme>
An example of #1 would be: 10GBASE-SX for 850nm 64b/66b Serial, and
10GBASE-LW4 for 1310nm SONET compatible WDM.
An example of #2 would be: 10GBASE-SX for 850nm 64b/66b Serial, and
10GBASE-L4W for 1310nm SONET compatible WDM.
As a note, no matter which one we choose, we are still dealing with
list of port types.
